What does the word high here really mean?

    While "squeaky clean" is simple enough to look up with a quick web search for nothing more than "define squeaky clean", high is not so easy. – Nathan Tuggy Nov 12 '15 at 4:04

    Still, the correct definition of "high" is in the dictionary, especially since we know that it has something to do with drugs. 12 b : intoxicated; also : excited or stupefied by or as if by a drug (merriam-webster.com/dictionary/high) – stangdon Nov 12 '15 at 12:48

In this context, "high" means "high on drugs". In other words, "intoxicated".


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.
