The afrikaans language uses the ge prefix for much the same purpose that the english language uses the ed suffix. I.E. past tense, nouning verbs and stuff like that.

rook means smoke, and often refers to the smoke of the wonder weed.

Thus, this is a South African term for smoked up or stoned, and is often used in South African English. Where stoned can refer genericaly to intoxication, gerook, because of the derivation, refers specifically to the action of inhaling the fumes of burning plant matter.

Noding in a foreign language, for a nodeshell challenge. SA drug slang seems to be one of my areas of expertise.
