Drug Related Street Terms/ Slang Words


Drugs are illegal in most places in the world today. For this reason talk of it has had to go underground. A very effective way of going underground is the development of a secret code language known and understood only by those who live in that world. In this way people can talk about illicit drug taking right in front of partners and parents without fear of them catching on.


Like any language that boasts a number of users drug related street terms are now more numerous than can begin to be recorded or described. There is also nothing static about this street slang. It changes faster than fashion and prides itself on staying ahead of those who would crack the code.

Here is just a small snippet of this language with some descriptive terms where they are applicable:
