Stoner Dictionary | Pot

Pot: noun 1. a slang term for marijuana

Origin: Mexico

Example: “Travis wants to smoke some pot.”

Better than any cooking utensil known to mankind, there is pot! A word used to describe marijuana of any sort or kind. It is probably the best 3 letter word in the english language. This term is accepted in the kitchen to the construction site. Any chef or foreman knows what it means when we are dishing out the P O T.

This term has been around since the late 1930s and early 1940s. 

The history lesson behind the origin of the word starts with the Spanish word potiguaya which loosely translates to “marijuana leaves.” It’s a Mexican-Spanish style word that was originally used for an alcoholic drink made by soaking weed leaves in brandy or wine. It eventually made its way to the U.S. where it was turned into. It’s a mainstream word that has lasted generations and remained in our mouths for years, just like pot itself.
