    to be spaced out - to be zoned out

    Dear teachers and native English speakers,
    can you explain through some easy examples the differences between these two phrasal verbs...? I cannot understand how you use them.
    Thanks so much.

    Re: to be spaced out - to be zoned out

    They seem to mean much the same, though I don't use 'zoned out'.

    Spaced out

    Zoned out
