When in the presence of another human being under the influence of cannabis, many things about their appearance, speech and characteristics may change. Their eyes may be droopy and red. Their spoken word will be repeatedly interrupted with fits of laughter or, and in some cases 'and', they will regularly remind you how hungry they are despite the vast quantities of Sour Patch Kids and Doritos they have consumed.

But when said human being reaches their highest point, the 'peak' of their high, often described as a '10', there lies one key indicator. One beacon that will truly enlighten onlookers as to how intoxicated they are...

The next time you are blessed with the pleasant presence of a altogether 'zooted' stoner, indulge in this undemanding task: simply ask said stoner, "out of 10, how high are you?"

There is one obvious response that one would obviously predict, "10". But this is incorrect. The answer that someone whole heartedly high as fuck would give is...

"faded"

There are two main reasons this is the only answer that can be given; when a person is so blazed that they fail the simple task of choosing a number out of 10 to match their current state of mind, that is when it is clear said person is on legitimately on a 10.
A second main reason is that "faded" is a word that can easily roll off of the tongue of a wide mouthed, slumped-in-sofa stoner.
One's self "Hello good chap, could i have a nanoscopic moment of your time to ask you a simple question?"

Stoner *nods head* (due to his brain melting out of his ears, this particular stoner found it a little too hard to speak)

One's self "out of 10, how high are you?"

Stoner *stares blankly into space while attempting to formulate an effective word that would describe the complete combustion of his brain cells in a effective manner while simultaneously being easy to say*
