The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has updated its list of slang terms for 2018, with some head-scratching results. The DEA Intelligence Report, entitled Slang Terms and Code Words
A Reference for Law Enforcement Personnel, is a reference handbook for law enforcement of slang words for drugs including cannabis, cocaine, heroin, hallucinogens, and more. For a complete list of jargon from drug culture including references to sales, smuggling, and interdiction, check out the report here.
The report offers plenty of nicknames for cannabis including old standbys including pot, weed, and reefer. What caught my attention were some of the newer names: smoochy woochy poochy, love nuggets, and bambalachacha. Huh? However, my new favorite has to be “Devil’s Lettuce”! What’s your go-to name for our favorite flora?
