In the 60's, a girl would get pinned by a guy when he made her his girlfriend. Ya know, after many dates, and the guy was ready to call her his girlfriend, he would formalize it by putting a silvery pin on her. So getting "pinned" means u are now taken. Watch the Dick Van Dyke version of Bye Bye Birdie, especially the song "The Telephone Hour." They use the term pinned quite a lot.

The feeling you have when you have crossed the "having fun" phase of doing cocaine into the "a new source of natural energy" phase of it. May also be used to describe the feeling obtained from speed, but with speed, the "having fun" phase is skipped.

Guy: "I'm fuckin' pinned."
