Do you want some booty juice with your burritos verdes?

Just for fun…

Phillip Smith over at AlterNet has The DEA’s Top 10 Most Insanely Ridiculous Slang Terms for Weed

Quite a fun list, including:

  • Bambalachacha
  • Booty Juice
  • Burritos Verdes
  • Fine Stu
  • Good Giggles
  • Joy Smoke
  • Love Nuggets
  • Pocket Rocket
  • Righteous Bush
  • Smoochy Woochy Poochy

Some of these terms would be a really bad idea to use when describing marijuana. I for one, would be really careful about offering anyone some of my pocket rocket, or asking for a taste of their righteous bush!

    So Bart Simpson is now a DEA informant?

    You’ll be shocked, but I think the DEA is confused about the phrase “booty juice.” While working in healthcare security, I have heard behavioral health patients, particularly younger ones, use this phrase when referring to drugs commonly administered to calm agitated/aggressive patients (ie. Ativan, Geodon, Haldol).They call these drugs “booty juice,” because they are administered as an intramuscular injection, usually gluteal. I have never heard anyone use this phrase to when referring to cannabis and I’m not sure how it would make sense. I think the DEA is a little confused about the vernacular the cool kids are using these days ; )

      good catch- that’s obviously the correct meaning of that slang term.

      The other terms aren’t exactly popular currency, a la “kind bud”, “Buddha (or ‘buda’)”, “tasty nugs”, etc. They sound like terms made up by the boys in the DEA office while playing trashcan basketball.

      I’m fond of the old 1930s slang- “reefer”, “gage” and “shuzzit.” My guess is that last term is a form of ‘double dutch’- the addition of extra syllables in words to make them less comprehensible to outsiders when spoken. Speaking in double dutch is a popular prison convict game of old, used by inmates to confound the guards. Takes a while to achieve fluency, but after all, prisoners have nothing but time. After sufficient practice it isn’t that difficult to encode and decode it, especially if one is already clued in to the specific topic of discussion. If you aren’t practiced, forget about it… As such, it’s a feature of jail/juvie/prison that’s spread beyond its origin and achieved wider currency in popular culture, which is what inevitably happens in a society as incarceration-happy as the USA.

      There are several ways to speak double dutch, depending on the sound of the extra syllable. The most famed practitioner of the popular modern variant- which most often employs the syllable “iz”- is the Southern California rapper, raconteur and bon vivant Snoop Dogg. I used to occasionally hear it spoken by whores who were passengers in my cab, back before Snoop was a big name. According to Wiktionary, it’s known as “Izzle”, and first became popular in African-American street culture in the 1930s Harlem Renaissance era https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/-izzle

      So, “shuzzit”: once the extra syllable is subtracted, it is of course the word “shit”, that word used so ubiquitously as a catchall slang term- including for various forms of dope, especially marijuana and heroin. I first heard about it from the memoir of Louis Armstrong.

    I don’t think Booty Juice is as ridiculous as the term “drug enforcement administration” That doesn’t enforce drugs with side effects taking up most of the commercial. Then raids gardens for plants. The UnAmerican practice of using a domestic agency to police the world and open doors for the CIA. A clue might be its grand poobah is a Czar. Seems Bo Sesspool is comfortable with the name, as his Russian connections are being exposed. So juicing some cannabis for a suppository isn’t so far fetched.

    ~ Shot of medication given to Psychiatric patients in the psych hospital, are given “booty juice” when they become violent, usualiiy a haldol or melaril shot, shot is given in buttocks

    ~ a shot of Haldol injected in the buttocks usually administered in a psychiatric hospital when patient gets out of control

    then a lot of gross descriptions and unpleasant visualizations from them that I’m leaving out.

    It is part of maintaining an Us and Them mentality in the minds of the ignorant: Look, they have their own secret codes so we don’t know what they’re up to. Scary!
    Meanwhile the parasites at DEA keep their tax funded jobs.

    • DC Reade

      well, we do have our secret codes. we have to.

      few of them are even close to being as dumb-ass as the entries on that list, though. lol, imagine a narc trying to make a street buy using any of those terms. Maxwell Smart.

      “Joy smoke” or “happy smoke”- that’s the informal phrase for marijuana in South Korea (and probably North Korea, too.) Including by the police authorities, who use it as a pejorative term.

    Last time I smoked some “Righteous Bush,” I had a pubic hair stuck in my throat for days.

    OT, from “just for the fun of it” to WTF? There’s a group called;

    Friends of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (FNIDA)

    Even Marijuana Legalization Opponents Criticize Schedule I

    http://tinyurl.com/yal8kq37

    The best part is their Board of Scientific Advisors;

    Its Board of Scientific Advisors includes several of the nation’s most vocal legalization opponents, including Kevin Sabet of Smart Approaches to Marijuana, former White House drug czar Barry McCaffrey, former Congressman Patrick Kennedy (D-RI), former National Institute on Drug Abuse Director Robert DuPont and former Office of National Drug Control Policy staffer Bertha Madras, according to the group’s letterhead. (Kennedy and Madras are also members of a Trump administration commission currently studying opioid issues.)

    Okay, now I’m in need of some serious Smoochy Woochy Poochy.

  • Tony Aroma

    Isn’t “Smoochy Woochy Poochy” from the movie Clerks? A term used by Jay (and not Silent Bob)?

  • DC Reade

    cool vintage slang term for Mexican bud- “colas de zorro”, Spanish for “fox tails.” From the days when unprocessed, fertile Mexican flowertops in full bloom with seeds did sometimes literally grow to the size and bushiness of a fox tail.

    The diminutive is “colitas”, “little tails.” As heard in the third line of the lyrics in the Eagles song “Hotel California”….
