How do you say that you’re ‘high’ (from smoking marijuana) in German?

How do you say that you’re ‘high’ (from smoking marijuana) in German?

Is the expression limited to marijuana or is it used in other instances as well?

Also if there is a term for people who smoke a lot of weed, that’d be interesting to know.

  • “Bekifft” is the accepted word that is used in public life and that everyone will understand. A parent or teacher might ask “Bist du bekifft?”; however when speaking among peers, the users themselves will usually not use the word, but one of the many slang terms. (At least that was the way in my days; I doubt it has changed.)
  • “High” and “stoned” are less formal, and will be understood by most people.
  • “Dicht” and “breit” are used to describe any kind of intoxication, usually from alcohol, but also cannabis.
  • In a totally formal context like, say, in a police report, there will be special formalized constructions like “Unter Drogeneinfluß” or similar.

The slang terms to describe the condition are too numerous to be listed. When their use is appropriate and when not depends strongly on context and audience – as everywhere, youth slang is highly volatile and cryptic, so tread carefully.

The most common way to describe a person who smokes a lot of cannabis is “Kiffer”.
