There’s no denying that “joint” is the term most MMJ patients (and recreational users) are familiar with. But like anything, the terms we use to describe our lives’ essentials undergo changes and evolve. Sometimes for the better . . . sometimes not so much. Here is a sampling of some of the words we’ve run across over the years to describe one of the simplest, most primal forms our medicine takes.
A lame term you’re only gonna find in a DEA handbook. Did we say this is lame
A bit better, not very imaginative, but the oft-cited term of choice by dispensaries across the land.
A term we often encountered being used by Haight-Ashbury types and the Beat Generation poets that inspired them.
A word that we have yet to encounter outside Deadhead circles.
After “joint,” probably the second-most common word in use.
A reference to its shape, this is yet another example of dispensary-approved terminology.
Straightforward, unadorned and to the point.
