Perhaps self-explanatory, an eighth is one-eighth of one ounce of marijuana
. A pretty hard-core stoner
friend of mine says that the stoner community
considers an eighth to be a pretty small amount of dope
. An eighth may be the smallest amount that a drug dealer
traffics in. An eighth of quite good stuff runs about $50-$60.
Usually, however, what is labelled an 'eighth' is actually around 3.5 grams.
