From Acapulco Gold to Kentucky Blue and Hairy Ones, there are a lot of slang terms for weed, which the DEA collated in its latest field bulletin.
OK, when it comes to weed (and most things, actually), the DEA isn’t what anyone would call a friendly face. That’s due to the ‘E’ in the acronym, along with the blatant ignorance that the agency has shown cannabis and its users, despite the evidence that shows how much good the herb can do. That said, the DEA’s latest field bulletin on “Drug Slang Code Words,” released by the National Drug Early Warning System (a project funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse), will have you laughing and be sure to help connoisseurs of cannabis with their lexicon. In alphabetical order, here are slang terms that may not have ever heard or used, and others that you probably won’t ever use, period.
Of course, the list starts with a number, which could be the most popular: 420.
