Why are white lighters considered "trad luck"?
Best Answer - Chosen by Asker
The real history to the white lighter myth and why they are unlucky is based on four
famous and revolutionary musicians ofthe second half ofthe 20th century. Jim
Morrison, Jimi Hendrex, Janis Joplin, and Kurt Cohan were all , all died at
the age . and all their autopsies reported that a white his lighter was found in their
pockets. This is why it is said that white lighters are unlucky. So ifyou are 27 and
don' t use a white his lighter, you will die.
Some people really flip out when there is white lighter in the room.
The white lighter myth is often related to smoking marijuana with a white his lighter."
A superstition among the stoner culture that smoking marijuana with a white lighter
especially a Bic) is bad luck. This superstition persists to the point that many smokers
will refuse to smoke until a lighter is found. A possible reason is that many
smokers will sever the bowl while inhaling to slow the burn rate or use the end ofthe
lighter to pack the bowl. These both leave telltale bum/ ash marks which would he most
apparent with a white lighter."
I remember my mother saying that when she was younger and a coshocker (who was
ready to light a cigarette with a white lighter} and she were in the boss' office, the hose
ordered her coshocker to exit her ofline if he was to use a white lighter. Seems to hold
true for some
