April 20 is... Weed Day

Stoners unite! If your favourite sporting event is the ‘wake and bake’, then Weed Day is sure to put a little smile on your stoned dial. It’s amazing the amount of language that has evolved around the practice of mowing the lawn, and the Lady Biest shares her extensive drug slang (all gained via internet research) below.


Assassin of youth (marijuana)

Atom bomb (marijuana mixed with heroin)

Baked (high on marijuana)

Barnyard hay  (poor quality weed)

Blast a joint (to smoke marijuana)

Boot the gong (to smoke marijuana)

Candy sticks (marijuana cigarettes laced with powdered cocaine)

Clam bake (sitting inside a car or other small, enclosed space and smoking marijuana)

Dusting  (adding PCP, heroin, or another drug to marijuana)

Fly mexican airlines (to smoke marijuana)

Fry sticks (marijuana cigarettes dipped in embalming fluid, sometimes also laced with PCP)

Herb and al (marijuana and alcohol)

Shotgun (inhaling marijuana smoke forced into one's mouth by another's exhaling).

Where can you find some romance characters blasting a joint together, I hear you ask. (Yes, sometimes I imagine hearing the questions I want to hear.) Try the urban fantasy novel Unholy Ghost by Stacia Kane. It has a soupçon of romance. Happy pot-smoking heroes and heroines are hard to find in romance, perhaps because they’d be too stoned to give a shit about their core conflict.
