Reading your question I'm hearing...."Gee.. this Sikh thing looks really cool, but I wanna smoke bud and am gonna smoke bud 'cause I really like it, so if Sikhs can't smoke, that's a dealbreaker."

Now for the answer.... Our Gurus were very plain about this. If you attach yourself to 'getting high' then you attach yourself to a substance outside yourself. When you get high, you later come down... then you have to get high again. In that process lies all the paraphernalia and rituals associated with getting high. It creates a longing to be in that state. The life of a Sikh is all about being high, not getting high. It's not a belief system, it's a practical lifestyle that allows you to remain elevated under all circumstances and in any environment. Anyone can live this lifestyle.
