The turnin lane is a term used to describe a state of mind that can only be obtained by various psychdelic drugs such as acid, mushrooms, and occasionally from consuming an extreme combination of alcohol and marijuana together. This term originated in minnesota from lsd users tripping and driving on the wrong side of hte road shouting "We're in the turnin lane' !!!" The term soon spread to Wisconsin and throughout the midwest and describes a mind state that is so impaired that if the victim were to be driving he surely would be on the wrong side of the road, or the Turning Lane. This variation of TURNING LANE is known to be prominent mainly in the Midwest region of North America, but can be achieved virtually anywhere in the world where good drugs are supplied or imbibed. Very commonly experienced by members of the hippy counterculture.
Users experiencing the extremely funky sensation of the turning lane can be spotted easily by their erratic wild behavior and their constant hollaring of non-sense and noises such as "Woohoo!!"
I went to the hippy jam festival, ate a bunch of acid and ex and was in the TURNIN' LANE for the next 24 hours.
When you are so wildly high that you cannot communicate your thoughts through actual words besides "woohoo" and other non-sense, you, my friend, are deep in the turning lane. But when you eventually pass out, you will be in the PARKING LANE!!!
