With marijuana, being "out of control" isn't even part of the picture. I can completely step off into the 12th dimension and not have to worry about doing something stupid that I don't remember the next day. Even when I'm talking to Jesus, I'm still in complete control.
Yeah, I feel what you're saying. That's one of the reasons I wish I was a smoker as opposed to a drinker.
The problem for me is that I get paranoid and legitimately think I'm going to die when I smoke. Everything slows down, I can hear/feel my heartbeat (which is usually beating wayyy faster than it should) and get really scared. That and the fact that I get probably the worst cotton mouth imaginable pretty much ruins the high for me.
