When one is sitting in a room or a car or any other confined space while others are smoking weed, however, said person does not actually take a “hit” off the pipe. As a result of being around so much smoke in a confined area one gets high (see tron, chron’d, chron, or trinitron) just from being in contact with said cloud of smoke.
(Interview with Federal Agents for a job as an IRS auditor)
IRS Agent: Your resume looks very impressive, however, do you smoke Marijuana?
Applicant: No, but one time I was in the basement at my hommie's house and everyone was getting trinitron to the max, there was so much weed beng smoked that I got a chrontact-high fo' sho'!
IRS Agent(slaps applicant on the back): Yeah, I know how that goes!
