Saying ‘Marijuana’ or ‘Dope’ – Cannabis Slang Discussion

Saying 'Marijuana' or 'Dope' - Cannabis Slang Discussion
Today on Lex’s World I discuss how I feel about the words ‘marijuana’ and ‘dope’ and to what degree these are appropriate terms to use for Cannabis. One of them is an old throwback to Mexican culture that was used against Cannabis during the Reefer Madness Era, the other is a reference to Dopamine and is a uselessly broad drug term. Can either be reclaimed?

  1. I agree with you 100% brother, lol my dad is a baby boomer and has called bud "dope" since then, I've made a little progress though, he's calling it "pot" Which is better to me anyway.
    Can't wait for the next video, you've really helped me out in my growing experience and look forward to learning more ♤

  2. You're right I feel like the word (dope) is dirty and it's not for cannabis, I say weed that's more like it for cannabis, bye.

  3. Off subject,but i stay in Michigan but I want to order quality female indoor and outdoor seeds. Please help

  4. I've always called it cannabis, always will bit let's not become like these over sensitive bed wetters in this sjw/pc society

  5. Only absolute pansies care if the word "marijuana" is "racist"
    Although I mostly just use the terms "herb" or "bud"

  6. Can't we have ONE THING IN LIFE WHERE WE LEAVE RACISM OUT OF ??? SICKENING, A SMOKER IS A SMKOKER, DON'T SHARE YOUR RACISTS B S !!! I AGREE WITH LEX 100 % I NEVER SAY "DOPE", USUALLY WEED/CANNIBIS. GREAT ADVICE!

  7. Yes, Cannabis, thank you Lex. I don't like weed, dope or marijuana, they all have negative connotations. The Spanish origin was "mariguan" I believe, with different variants through the 1920's. There is no history of the noun prior to 1873. Good stuff Lex, keep it up!

  8. I call it "bud" usually, or "flower". Dope is a bad term for all the reasons stated in the video, and marijuana is just a clumsy word to say. Anyone upset by the term "marijuana" is a fucking tool. imo…

  9. It's fucking whatever you want to call it fuck me if you're objectively referring to a physical object you're not being racist. End of discussion. However, if you hear a word that is the definition for a plant, and you instantly relate it to racism, you're the one with the prejudice and racist perceptions. It's a hypocritical statement.

  10. check this Auto Blue Amnesia and give me your opinion on my first grow 🙂

  11. its funny how in my city everybody says motai (mota=spanish for weed)
    my city is like 20.000 citizens and not even the town next to us know this term its a unique word for our small city lol
