Student or Learner
could you please explain to me the meaning of this phrase? Does it necessarily imply the use of drugs, or it can simply mean "to enjoy one's time"?
Here's the context:
"Mohammed Bouyeri, the murderer of the Dutch fi lmmaker
Theo van Gogh, was born and raised in Amsterdam.
His father came from Morocco in the 1960s. Mohammed
was not interested in religion when he grew up. His knowledge
of Islam was rudimentary. He preferred to get high
and chase girls".
Urban Dictionary: get high
Some things you cannot expect to have explained in detail - they evolve from street language, and in Amsterdam drugs would be the obvious collocation.
