How many slang terms we think of for being on drugs?

Obviously there's being high, cranked, amped, baked, stoned, fried, toasted (though I think of that one as drunk), blazed...

think in terms of all kinds of drugs... how many slang terms are there for being inebriated?

At uni I found you can drop almost any noun into a drug/booze statement and it's understood...

"Last night we drank at least 3 bottles of tequila between us... honestly, I was completely trousered."

Plenty of terms for drunk, of course, like "three sheets to the wind", "sozzled", "stinko", etc.

If we're going to include "buzzed," then we have to include the stronger form:

"monged"? I always heard that was when you dug up a female corpse, freshly interred, and...

Avital Ronell, in Crack Wars had some good ones, but I think there are as many in this thread.

No love for "crunk," or "tight"?

Oh, yes, I forgot about "hippy flipping." I always heard "candy flipping" as a one-off on "candy striping" (taking acid and E at the same time, IIRC). Never heard of the hippy flip, though -- sounds like a jazz tune written in the 1950s.

Wow, a lot of these I've heard but there are also a ton that are totally new to me. I wonder if they're regional?

Jay (in Dogma) said: Rockin' the Gange!

Lemmy (from Motorhead) has the lyric "Ferociously stoned" in their song "Iron Horse". I've always liked that.

I always use some form of "breakfast". When I'm at the bar and want to go "get some fresh air" I say "I'm going to get some breakfast" or something like that. Because there's always a 24 hour diner around, right?

I've heard of "destroyed" "annihilated" and "obliterated." Also "caked" or "caked-out." I've also heard a guy refer to how high he was by combining annihilated with hammered, to get "annihihammered"

I had never heard the term spun until I moved to Denver, but you hear it in the jamband scene as well. Person who is spun is on MDMA.

A friend of mine who 1) had a very strong Southern drawl, and 2) was absolutely smashed:

"I'm fucked upper'n shit!"

You have to read it in dialect. It was hilarious (and I have co-opted it for my own use).

Then there's trashed, zonked, zoned, and lost in the ozone. And trashed. Wait... did I already say that one or did I just think it?

How high can you be and still manage to say "annihihammered"?

Feeling alright.

Flying.

Freaked out.

Zippy.

Slammed.

Uncle Brother Walker - my stoner friends & I used the term "breakfast", but for us it was because of those stupid anti-drug ads from the 80s where they show eggs frying in a pan "This is your brain on drugs, any questions?" Yeah, just one - did no one ever tell you that stoners think of being "fried" as a good thing? Saying "I'm breakfast!" basically meant "I'm fried!"

For that, I like, "rode hard and put away wet". We have horses, and the phrase is very descriptive.
