Saw this answer in Urban Dictionary:
"after smoking some bud, this feeling washes upon you like a warm wave. The first notic[e]able sign you get is when everything takes on a hazy effect. It[']s like, a weight being lifted off your shoulders. Then you get the giggles. Everything seems to be funny. And if you can't control yourself, it[']s difficult to stop."
Most likely, the student's actions are the same as above described, but keep in mind that there are different kinds of drugs - uppers, downers, etc. (different drug, different effect.) Or perhaps the student is psychologically unstable. Haven't seen the news/source.
