Smoking at indoor gigs?

Post by beastybeezy » Sun Dec 30, 2012 4:01 pm

I was just wondering - is it OK to smoke at Gigs? I know everyone does it at festivals in parks, but I went to go see Lil wayne a few years back at the Hammersmith Apollo (London, UK - a very well known venue here) and there were a few people toking up around the arena (uk has a smoking ban in effect indoors anywhere).

Anyway, i could see guards looking down from the balconies and sides at these people holding their joints in the air raving away and they did nothing?? at one point, Weezy even said on stage "if you got that good weed and your saving it... nows the time to light up!" So I did, but was so shit scared the whole time i was smoking!!!

How can such a famous, prestigious venue get away with not enforcing a smoking ban and does this happen quite often?

"if you got that good weed and your saving it... nows the time to light up!" pretty much the same thing Snoop said wen i seen him... but it was open air concert.

Dunno man, i wouldn't try riskin it like... Reminds me of a time however in a local bar, pretty hard line Republican bar, so hard line it's called 'The Felons' (because you needed to be a felon to be a member... not making this up) and i saw a guy smoking, drinking a pint, and taking a piss all at the same time...... madness.

Well, weed is not legal in the UK, so I'd say that you should be careful...unless you don't care about the consequences. Always better to be safe than sorry

It's usually not a big deal at concerts if you're not painfully obviously smoking weed. I manage all the time 8)

Actually.... just remembered, I bumped into an old friend in a club about a month ago. He had this really shit necklace on him, so i asked him what it was and why he was wearing it. Turned out to be a vaporizer, and we were smoking that on the dancefloor, so if you're really serious on tying to find a way you may wish to consider one of these.

Despite that, down here toking at concerts is bleak.

People are always doing that. As long as you're discreet, there's nothing to be worried about. In large crowds, security usually has bigger issues than a pot smoker, they're looking for drunk, rowdy, violent people. Also, at worst you will probably just be kicked out, or maybe just have your drugs confiscated. Security guards are not usually cops.
I personally recommend checking oneself for OCD at least once every 5 minutes.

Went to see Wu-Tang earlier this year. people were constantly getting thrown out the side doors for smoking.

I'd rather ask "Should i really be smoking at an indoor gig, in a country where cannabis is illegal, in a venue which belongs to somebody else, whose policy is that smoking is not permitted?" If the proprietors do not want you to smoke, then you shouldn't smoke in their premises... simple.

Wow, I'm shocked! At Wu Tang Clan concert, I'm surprised they're not already high in the introduction!

They were high. Bouncers aren't gonna throw the talent out are they? However, it's different for the crowd.

Correct again. Damn. My mind is so blank without the hash. Hmm. You have my vote. Thankfully I'm not talentless..
