One time a cop thought my friends and I were. He had a good enough reason though, we were playing imaginary baseball and playing on the jungle gym at 11pm. The cop thought it was 1am though.

When I moved into my dorm at the beginning of my freshman year in college, I had long(ish) hair, a pretty good beard going and, of course, my room was adorned with posters of bands from the 60s and 70s. Everyone thought I was a stoner, and they really couldn't be more wrong.

A lot of people have told me that they're surprised I'm not a stoner. Apparently, it's because I talk slowly/lazily. Also, in my Literature class once, I walked in and the girl next to me asked if I smoked pot. I think it was what I was wearing (cut off jeans, yellow shirt, striped toe socks, flip flops).

Also, when I was seventeen, I came home late from a night at the county fair with my friends. On the way home, I had puked all over myself because of too much funnel cake and too many rides, and I had a migraine from riding The Gravitron. My dad was sure I'd been drinking, and grounded me for two weeks.

For the record, I've never been high or drunk in my life. Unless you count that time my Gran gave me sleeping pills, and I thought that the ceiling fan was giving off cobwebs that were going to fill up my bedroom and suffocate me.

I got miraculously drunk at a party once and some girl asked if I'd taken something, I was mortally offended. Granted, I was scraping a crude penis into the three bean dip while drinking martini out of the bottle, but that was no reason to suspect I was high.

Yes. In addition, my username has been mistaken as having something to do with pot, which it does not. I get a bit of a natural high when I am tired at night—well, until I get to "ready to pass out anywhere" state of tiredness. I have lived in apartments where everyone but me smoked regularly, and I have hung out with crowds of people who were often high, and I tend to be a bit of an unconscious mimic sometimes. C'est la vie.

Yup, like every week, haha.

For the record, I've never been high.

I've only been high once. I was very young and the drug was Zolpidem (sold here as Stilnox). I wanted to get to sleep but instead I went mental.

I'm not aware if anyone's genuinely mistaken me for high. If they have, they didn't say or I didn't remember.

I thought my friend was high the other day. The teacher asked him what the purpose of a hero was and he replied "The cilia filter the toxins from the air out so they don't enter the body, wait a minute we are talking about the lungs right?" Turns out he was just dreaming he was in biology. (Also, I posted this in Sleeping in Class as well)

I've been accused once or twice by the preppy kids, and offered a joint a couple times because I "would just be hilarious stoned" (I almost did it too, the girl offering was pretty cute)

Apparently I look high whenever I'm really tired and trying to stay awake. (In other words, about 25% of the time.)

All the time. I have to take off my glasses (transition lenses, so they're usually dark) to show them my eyes are fine before they believe me.

And even then, they figure I'm on something. I guess my behavior is a little too... idiosyncratic?

Quite a few times. Even by my cousin (who is three months younger and my best friend) and my older brother because I "act just like [him] when [he] use to do drugs". I think it's mostly because
    I go deeper into (random) things than most people.
    I'm twitchy (I get nervous/restless if I stay still too long).
    I zone out quite a bit.
    sometimes I forget to breathe (my brother does the same thing, so I think it's a genes thing).
    if I'm really into what I'll talking about I tend to go talk rather fast until I run out of air and use my hands to "talk" or mime things really which I guess is a stoner thing. Who knew, right?
    I stumble over my words sometimes.
    I smile and laugh a lot (sometimes it's a nervous thing, but mostly I'm easily amused) also I sometimes will laugh just out of nowhere because of something I thought or remembered.
    I speak my thoughts out loud (sometimes in public when I forget).
    I have way too much fun in The Toy Aisle.
    I have a weak right ankle and low blood pressure meaning I trip, stumble and have a hard staying steady when I get out of chairs.
    And lastly I try not to step on cracks/grooves in sidewalks or tiles which can look a little weird when I forget and do so in crowds.
Because of all that people tend to look at me strangely, call me a stoner and avoid me. I once had someone point me out in a restaurant and ask his kid: "Look at her. Do you want to end up like that? Because that's what drugs do to you." I also had a lady see me on the sidewalk and pull her kids close saying "Don't go near her." then turn to her husband/boy friend and ask "She's just not right. What do you think she's on, Honey?" :lol:
It doesn't really bother me anymore. I mean, hey! If they think I'm stoned I can have fun like a little kid and get too excited and no ones going to say a thing!

Every day during my Sophomore year my parents thought I was high. I was actually just incredibly bored 24/7.
Then I went out and DID get high once, and they didn't question me on it. Odd. They haven't talked to me since, really. I don't care, I haven't gotten high since. But like... I'm the ultimate stoner apparently. I wear the stoner jacket, I have the stoner face (I can't smile, alright guys? I just don't.), and I can sense when others are high. I'm just never high.

I take the relaxed path in life, and it works.

The summer I worked at a grocery store, for July 4 a group of my friends got together and had a party -- there were cookies baked, cookies eaten, fireworks watched, the whole nine yards (no alcohol or drugs involved, though).

I ended up eating so much raw cookie dough / cookies / other sweet things that I threw up all over the place on the way back home. The next morning (which I was supposed to be working), I tried to call in sick.

I'm mortally certain my boss thought I had gone out and gotten madly drunk (at least until I mentioned that the raw eggs in the cookie dough I ate might have given me salmonella ... he was happy to let me take off work after that ...).

Other than that, despite having a number of the personality traits mentioned above, no one has ever mistaken me for high / stoned / otherwise on mind-altering chemicals. At least, not to my face ...

After a particular event (Involving drugs), my friend has asked several times if I've taken something. The few minutes surrounding that event though was funny enough to lol whenever he asks.
Imagine a several minute comedy scene with a big "Ohhh yeahh...." realization at the end, then amplified through drug effect. It was a one of a kind event.

Other than that, not really.

Wow, all those things you listed make me envy you. I never get what is wrong with having fun, especially by being naturally strange, and acting like a kid?

Me and my friend were once asked if we were on acid, which I imagine is quite something. I don't know what it was. We sort of have a cryptic language and laugh a lot at things that have a long history to them, but would make no sense to other people.

Because having fun means you're on a psychedelic drug!

That's happened to me once. But it was kinda my fault. I saw these two adorable twins, and I poked my friend, pointed at the and said, "My god, they're the same person!" with a gaping-mouthed expression.

The father pulled the kids over to another part of the room.

I have chronically dry eyes, which leads to them being irritated and red/blood-shot a good deal of the time... especially in office buildings with dry air and A/C running through vents right over my head... So put that together with an employer and you get the picture. I've been questioned more than once about my blood-shot eyes. :( (I carry drops with me, but in the end it only serves to make me look more 'guilty'!)

Another time .......I went into a clinic when I was really worried about something and my heart-rate was elevated (120bpm) due to anxiety... a medic looked at me sideways and asked me if I 'knew' why my heart rate would be that fast. I wanted to yell "Because I'm upset, you idiot!!!"

Can't blame them for being cautious, but DAMN I hate it when it happens to me! I rarely even drink.

Many times I have been accused of being on drugs. Well, many of asked.
My sister's older friend seriously wondered when I called for my friend. What else... at school many kids wonder. I am usually the "smart kid" or the "kid that is most likely a crack head". I am just a happy-random person who likes to express her love for DNA and other random crap like flying objects..clams..queso..all that wonder, fluffy jazz.

I can't even recall ..
well this is just great. I am in class and my teacher asked if I was high because I was on this site. Then the well-know, hippie kid was joking saying that I am under the influence.

Well I am going to leave this randomness at this: The random, crazy people might just naturally be this way.
