    There's a lot of different terminology associated with the drug in day-to-day conversation. What is your preferred term? If you don't have an particular name you'd prefer, what do you use most?

    I usually just call it weed. Sometimes I'll say marijuana if I'm in arguing why it should be legalized. And other times I'll say Mary J.

    Pot and marijuana, depending on who I'm speaking with. Pot sort of sticks because of the term "pot head," which is a term that causes me to chuckle because the ones I've known who were given that label were interesting characters, for lack of a better word.

    "Dope" seems too general for marijuana, referring (reefer-ing :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:) to any other drug also. The slang I use most is weed, although I also like ganja. It just sounds cool.

    I usually say marijuana in most situations or THC/cannabis if the situation is more "formal."

    Certainly it's got enough redeeming qualities to avoid being the devil's plant. o.0 It's the abuse of it that's bad.

    <<I have never used it btw, just know a bit about it.

    I was being ironic. I'm actually for marijuana. I just like calling it that because it feels more fresh. "Weed" is what I use in basic conversations, "Marijuana" when being formal, but everybody refers to it as such. When I'm with others, I like to be a little more casual.

    Casual - weed

    Serious business - marijuana

    "Cannabis" doesn't seem to be received too well, unless I add "medical" at the start.

    Of course, please take into account that I know almost nothing* about illegal (I'm British) drugs. You <i>can't</i> smoke the weeds in my garden! Although, seriously, I experience enough unusual perceptions.

    *Beyond getting it drilled into my head from a young age that you'd probably die (early) if you take illegal drugs once. At my primary school, we had this thing called the DRUG RUG, that was an actual rug, with names of drugs and something about how they're dangerous. It was interesting, in a morbid way.

    And folks wonder why kids don't take drug education seriously.

    I use the terms marijuana, weed, pot or "parrot salad" (sounds better in my mother tongue, Afrikaans. "Papegaai slaai"). Or I just call it "the green stuff" or "boom" (pronounced "bwim," directly translated: tree) The term I choose to use depends on the general feel of the conversation.

    I like weed or something crazy like wacky tobaccy or something haha~ I can't call it pot because that word here means "sweet red beans" (azuki in japan ^.^) so whenever I tell someone I really like pot they almost have a heart attack thinking it's weed XD

    Yeah... if you like to smoke, don't come here... it's a 5 year prison sentence (and deportation and a black mark on your immigration record if you're not a citizen) o.o;;;;;
