Hey, Wanna Smoke Some Muggles? Tom McNichol, Salon.com
To win a battle -- even in a war on drugs -- you must know your enemy. That's why the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy has compiled a database with more than 2,300 street terms for drugs and drug-related activities. The introduction to the database claims that understanding drug-related street terms is an 'invaluable tool for law enforcement,' because 'a single term or similar terms may refer to various drugs or have different meanings.' But don't expect the lingo in the database to increase your street cred. Strange slang pervades the drug dictionary, which lists 'Dinkie Dow,' 'Muggles,' and 'broccoli' as common street terms for marijuana.
