Back in the day, we used to refer to the product of being smoking pot as being stoned
. Then one day our friend John decided that we were not smoking. We were "communing with nature." We adapted this into our lexicon. Now, when we refer to smoking, we speak of "communing" (instead of smoking) or being "communed" (instead of being "stoned"). I much prefer my version of the smoking to the average words.
John is always stoned. He's been communing with nature alot lately.
