This will be my first year at Coachella, but I was just thinking... How many times did you witness an instance of spliff politics during past years? (The brits may be more familiar with this question):dumbo

What are 'spliff' politics? I just know of smoking spliffs when joints aren't permitted.

Spliff politics are a dynamic which arises from the three fundamental rules of skinning up:


Thou shalt always offer thine spliff to thine neighbour.

Thou shalt make sure that all thine neighbours are offered it in turn and pass it on, or thou shall smite them with a poke in the ribs.

Thou shalt never, ever ask for a drag of a spliff that's not made of thine own naughty goodness.

The problem is simple: on the one hand, if you haven't got any shit of your own, you're forbidden to ask for drags of other people's shit.
On the other hand, if you manage to insinuate yourself into their group by striking up a conversation, they are obliged to include you in the spliff round.

So, spliff politics are the process of one person trying hard to mingle in a group which is trying hard to not let them (unless they're very stoned, in which case they won't care anyway).

If u see any Irish guys, just hand over all ur smoke to them and they'll show u how to roll a real spliff :cool:

I've been to Coachella 2 years. The first year I was passed a joint while watchin M83 mid afternoon, complete strangers. I was baked the rest of the day by myself. Wonderful.

Last year right before Tool I had an urge to get stoned and I walked around looking down until I saw someone with a joint and asked if they minded me joining them and they were more than welcoming. So i'm 2 for 2.

How do you guys sneak it in? Jock it?

Sneak em in between the butt cheeks. Who wants a hit?
No really... dude it's california. If you have glaucoma, back pain, or athlete's foot you can get a "prescription" . But you will not be hassled in the show, and even if you get caught smoking a j in the streets of palm springs, you will get a ticket and a $100 fine.

Thanks for the insight.
My politics are just pass it to the left after you fill your insides with smoke.

I honestly can't see anyone stopping me from sneaking shit in. Either way, I have a few of those cute little "secret" pockets and a belt.

I blaze continuously every year and it usually ends up that the people that are around me dont have weed and love the stench of what I'm burning and always get smoked out...most have been lucky enough to be gifted a bud for their next need to smoke.

I'm not stingy, I share but didn't come to blaze the whole venue...but if your next to me it will be passed your way...and it has never been reciprocated in all the years I've been!!!

I'm reading a lot about "spliffs" and "joints"...is there a difference between the two? Also, how do you roll one? I've only done it three times and it's come out decent. It just burns a little harsher. Is there a specific place I can get these papers you speak of? I've only been using bible paper >.<;

Watch as people are being processed in to see how thorough the search is. If you need to make a few adjustments just let some people in front of you in line and do as needed. Once in, I haven't a clue. I hope whatever "authorities" are present keep it cool. Either way, I don't do concerts without ganja.

spliffs have a mix of tobacco and weed while joints are straight bomb.

I prefer no tobacco and a rolled cone...pappers of choice are bambu 1" hemp papers...

Maybe grape flavored but the tobacco wraps give me a nasty headache...so do me a favor and

"Pass the dutchie to the left hand side"...lallaaaaalalaa

Take two and pass so we can all get blunted
Don't smoke ciggarettes so my growth ain't stunted
We got at least five head so I rolled a white owl
It's the break of dawn and we're awake like night owls
Phillies are cool but they burn much quicker...
... hey yo come on pass that shit *****
We lounge to the sounds as we leave from Uptown
It's time to go downtown and make some more rounds
This city never sleeps that what Sinatra sang
For that fat fat blunt you know I got this thing
so hand it over cause I wanna get charred
I'm in love with mary jane she keeps me large
So don't hog it let's get it moving real fast
Everybody just chill and take like two pulls and pass

Omar1
04-01-2007, 07:45 PM
The club is crowded everyone's up in here
Heyo Premier what's that you got there?
It looks like a nice plump blunt in your hand
I just know you're gonna share it with me cause I'm your man
So bust it, I got one too and if you spark up yours
I'll light up mine when it's through
Oh shit, there goes my man the fat mack
We used to get blazed I know he's got a fat sack
Let's go upstairs grab a chair and unwind
so the la la can enhance our minds
The system booming let the bass increase
I find me a seat so I can peep the chic
ladies and maybe get my homeboys some ass
All you gotta do is take two pulls and pass

Omar1
04-01-2007, 07:45 PM
Even in the morning like the flavor of juice
A blunt adds spice and a blunt can spruce
up your day but I'm not advertising just telling
of aspect a part of our lives
And around the way there ain't no shame in our game
cause the fame is no thing we get together and hang
And since you know I got dash and class
then I'm after you so take two pulls and pass
