These Are Slang Names For Marijuana According To The DEA

Marijuana Plant

Cannabis has been called all types of names over the years. The most common slang terms for cannabis are obviously marijuana, pot, and weed, but I have also heard it called everything from laughing grass to giggle bush to kill bud. A big debate has been going on as to what is the politically correct term for marijuana. The term ‘marijuana’ itself carries a lot of baggage that a lot of people don’t like.

Marijuana is a word that has evolved over the decades, having racist origins but since becoming the most common term for the plant in many media outlets. A big push has been underway to try to convince people to only use the word cannabis, and I am fine with that. Admittedly, I don’t always use the term, especially when blogging, but that is do to reach purposes. When I am in person I tend to go with cannabis, but to each their own (in my opinion).

The DEA recently released a report detailing slang words for various substances. Marijuana was included. Below is a comprehensive list of slang words for marijuana, according to the DEA. Many of these I have never heard before:
