Drug Slang Metanode

Users of illegal drugs frequently need to use code words to converse more freely about their evil habits. A classic example, 420, supposedly came about in California when some kids wanted to talk about getting stoned without letting on to authority figures what they were up to. Or perhaps slang developed because some druggies are too far gone to pronounce methamphetamine properly.
