1. Upward in altitude. Located toward the observer's zenith.

2. Upward in geographic elevation.
3. Shorter term for High School.

4. The type of Lander in which there can only be one.

5. Most importantly and commonly used as an adjective to indicate that a person is under the influence of a controlled substance. It can be applied to any drug as long as it is not commonly supplied for recreational use. For something to be a drug, it has to be a chemical with an active effect on the body without being a nutrient, vitamin or mineral. So one can get high on fumes, medications, plant chemicals like THC, Fungal toxins found in mushrooms, synthetic chemicals like LSD, fermented waste materials, and animal biochemicals like adrenogland secretions. Please note that nicotine and alcohol use are not indicated by the word "high." For alcohol, the word used is "drunk" and for nicotine, the effect is so mild, it is almost never referred to at all.

6. Most of the time, "high" is used for being under the influence of Tetrahydrocannibinol, more commonly known as Marijuana or pot. For clarity, most speakers will indicate what drug is being used by adding the word "on" followed by the drugs name.

Side note: The reason why this definition is so long, is because I am high on an amphetamine derivative prescribed by a shady doctor.
1. That hot air balloon is so high.

2. Snow can usually be found high in the mountains.
3. I went to Marina High. Now I have aids.

4. There can only be one Highlander.

5. Straight guys will suck you off if you get them high first.

6. Prima: "Dude, are you high? You said you were out of pot."

Secunda: "I AM out of pot, so I got high on cough syrup."

The alternate state of being that you enter after using certain drugs or sniffing certain things. You will feel very surreal and look at things with a different perspective. You laugh at a lot of silly things, speak differently and have impaired motor skills. Your blood pressure usually goes down, sometimes to the point of fainting. But that's not a point. Being high is an experience that is nearly unparalleled and cannot be described. People say that getting high kills brain cells, but that's because your brain is oxygen-deficient from smoking or sniffing in the first place (That's how people get high off of whiteout and sharpies)
A really funny thing to do to people who get high is say "Do you want some food?" and they'll probably say "Yeah" and then you say "Well too bad I don't have any...bitch." There was this kid who used to come in class high every time and one day we put an imaginary box on his head and he started flipping out, yelling "Get it off! I can't see!"

Hmm. Being high off of marijuana is quite an interesting feeling. Beginner smokers can get high off of about three hits from a pipe after loading a good-sized bowl. The high starts off with feeling a bit light-headed and carefree. From then on, you laugh at EVERYTHING. EVERYTHING when you are high is EXTREMELY hilarious. You will laugh so hard the cookies and cheetos you are eating will fall from your mouth. Your mouth will be in almost a permanent smile, and it is almost impossible to stop the smile. You will laugh hysterically and giggle at the slightest things. You can't really feel your fingers and legs (but in a good way, not a scary way.) From then on, your vision might be slightly strange. Things might expand and seem larger, and everything might be wavery. It is VERY hard to get paranoid, even for beginners. It basically never happens. Time seems to pass very slowly. Music makes you want to close your eyes and makes you want to explode from happiness. You can understand things you never could. Being high is awesome for anyone, as marijuana is an extremely safe drug. Don't hesitate to try it =)
Joe shouted something in a southern accent, and Josephina rolled on the floor laughing for 2 minutes, but it seemed like an hour, because they were extremely high.

Existing on a mental/spiritual plane which can be quite contrary to your or most individual's normal state of awareness. Emotions within state can range from extreme calm to hysterically eractic fear. This awareness normally results in heightened concentration of something (person, place, thing, idea, thought,image, smell, taste, etc.). Once locked in, person may trance entire awareness onto one subject. When this happens, whether high or when low or normal, the concentration can reveal things that normally are missed. State of being high can be induced through various methods including chemical inducement (including the most popular herbals), physical endorphine release due to sudden rush, mental concentration, extreme happiness, radical detachment, etc. Extensive inductions through use of chemicals have been know to lessen life force qi or sometimes called chi. All induction forms can be highly addictive to certain character types, so know thy self.
Being high can grant full undivided attention to the minutest of details by finding universal link to that detail...

Many a time I have found myself trying to describe what being high is like. In all honesty there cannot really be a single definition of this state of being, seeing as almost every different high (at least for me) seems to play out somewhat different. My best explanation is : Being high is a state of being when all the tension in all your muscles is relieved and you have ultimate relaxation. You will most likely start to space out for what seems like forever and then instantly realize how disconnected you are. At this point you then turn to your friend and tell them what you just told them and they will reply, "DUDE I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU MEAN!" or they will stare at you blakly for a few seconds and then start to laugh their ass off. Then comes the uncontrollable laughing fits at almost nothing or at nothing itself. All music you hear will sound like the clearest and best quality music you have ever heard. Also, when you watch movies you get sort of a tunnel vision and it seems like you're in a movie theater. Another thing is that just your normal vision will seem like the quality has shot way up and even the difference in color of leaves in fall will make you be completely and utterly in bliss with how beautiful every thing is. Also some may feel a heightened sexual arousal. You may find that you will be telling stories that are not relevant at all. To sum up, being high is a very relaxing, fun, safe way to have fun and just appreciate life more.
yo dude we are so high right now, I cant believe we just wrote a definition

it's hard to describe but i'll try. when you first feel the high you will fell very warm. you'll probly want to sit down and will stare at random things for no reason. its hard to talk without laughing. when your high you can't tell if your in reality or a dream. you feel like you are watching yourself through a screen. you will remember things that seem random at the time.you are aware of the fact that your high. when you move your body parts you feel like your floating and every movement make an incredible feeling thats hard to describe. its feels like 10,000 ant crawling around your skin but it does'nt hurt. it feels good. so when im high i will walk around alot and make random movements. eating is amazing. for me, when i chew food its make a sensation that move from my jaw to my skull that feels amazing. when you listen to music, you can hear every instrument and not even listen. your attention will focus on many things as well as you could sober. ameteur smokers will cough alot and want to run cold water in there mouths. so bascilly just get some bud and smoke 2 joints in morning smoke to joints in the evening
when your high you can't tell if your in a dream or reality.

Hard to explain...after you smoke a joint or two you will get really giddy and everything around you seems to go in slow motion. When your talking to someone and your done finishing what you were saying...it seems to echo in your mind. Music sounds amazing and great...listening to INSANE CLOWN POSSE really gets you goin when your stoned. You will get the munchies and everything you eat tastes really fucking fantastic! It taste soo good and no matter how much you eat, you wont get full.

Captin Crunch taste amazing when your high.

Eating also brings down your high.

SO! If you really wanna know what it feels like to be high, go out and burn a few with some homies! MMFWCL to all the juggalos and lettes!
Smoke some weed and get high bitch!

The best state to be in. It's the best feeling in the world. Here are some effects.

1. You start feeling really funny.

2. Sometimes you feel as if your body is shaking cause some parts of your body might start getting tingly or numb.

3. You laugh at everything, even the simplest of things, such as your cat meowing.

4. If you're getting in bed with your laptop and you're trying to get in a nice comfortable position, you feel like you're having an epic fight with your laptop (happened to me).

5. You start conversations with people on facebook or AIM that you most likely wouldn't do if you weren't high, simply because you're high and you're not worried about anything bad happening. For that moment, you're not shy or reluctant to talk to them.

6. You're not afraid to risk awkwardness or embarrassment.

7. Everything just feels so wonderful.

8. You feel really optimistic about everything. You don't have any bad thoughts.

9. You feel as if nothing can possibly go wrong.

10. Masturbation feels 10 times better. Seriously, jacking off while you're not high can't even remotely compare.

11. You feel really good about life, period.

12. Food tastes fucking amazing.

13. Movies become 10 times funnier.

14. Life is good.
