A lot calmer when the ganja’s through ya
You need ya armour cause them niggas out here tryna shoot ya

from J. Cole – How High Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

When you are high you are less susceptible to pain, key example that is entirely unrelated: Tony Montana (Scarface) got shot many times but he was high on Coke so he didn’t die immediately. So the weed gives you that armor, and also it gives you the chill sense of mind as well.
