"Getting there is half the fun," is a philosophy that never gets old. For today's potheads traveling to distant destinations for vacation, the other half is getting high once you've gotten there. But getting off on that huge chunk of red Lebanese hashish you just copped in the Beirut bazaar won't be half as easy as back home if you can't summon up the correct words to ask one of the locals for a pipe in which to incinerate your pungent purchase. Learning how to ask for weed in foreign languages should be one of the first things you do once you book your next vacation.

Don't bother dredging up that worn-out foreign-phrases manual. Such publications don't take into consideration that of the 50 million regular pot-smokers in America today, more than a handful manage to somehow save up enough to afford an occasional excursion to Europe or go south of the border. One of the most commonly frustrating drawbacks to vacationing in a foreign land can be the inability to verbally communicate certain phrases elementary to drug consumption.

This handy guide will help you learn how to ask for weed in foreign languages (including phonetic pronunciation keys). The guide is designed to save you the embarrassment of looking like just another run-of-the-mill American drug-tourist, and to reward you with scads of glittering opportunities to become the “life of the party.” Make your next of trip over the border that stoned-out vacation it should be instead of a dismal rerun of Midnight Express.
