The key here is to remember that everyone is different. Marijuana is classified as a VERY mild hallucinogen (I know people who've experienced this, and in my early years aswell, to some degree), but its effects/affects are truly dependent on the individual. Although there are some common side-effects that are reported, i.e munchies, cottonmouth etc., there are plenty of other symptoms that are only experienced by a small minority i.e "tingliness".
Agreed, and I don't think it's very fair to compare it to those other drugs in the first place, but I felt like we should when we're talking about using them for their hallucinogenic properties specifically.
My perspective does change when I'm high. I feel like I'm better at playing video games for example, and I tend to have odd thoughts. I'd say that generally my thoughts and actions are more straightforward and in line with what I really want in the moment. Like when I'm high I don't have to take a lot of time to consider what I'm going to eat, I go straight for what I want. When I'm very stoned there are a few visual effects (haziness, distortion). Music can be enhanced as well.
What doesn't happen though, is I don't feel the urge to do any work. I just get lazy. I spend most of the time that I'm high just eating, watching TV, playing video games, etc. When I took shrooms, the movie that was on in my friend's room was actually a bit unsettling and distracting. I felt like I should be doing something constructive so I sat there in thought until I came to the conclusion that I was looking for and why the message of the movie bothered me so much. I took DXM yesterday and after I was done listening to music (was nice in the comeup, but became oddly quiet and tinny once I peaked) wrote a four page letter about what I'd hypothetically say to my loved ones if I was to die. Ironically, this helped me get to the root of why I feel the need to use drugs in the first place. I also admitted a few things to myself that I could never have admitted otherwise. Pretty heavy stuff.
About thirty minutes after I came down, I smoked a few bowls. All I did was buy a bunch of snacks from the vending machine. I lied down in bed, and suddenly started to feel like I was tripping again. This made sense because I dosed again right after I peaked and I'd just smoked some good bud. The visuals in the dark were pretty awesome but I ended up just jacking off and falling asleep because I was stoned and tired.
