I gotta admit, I am the same way. I can't keep up with drug slang, mostly because of my lack of interest.Hayseed wrote:For whatever reason drugs never have and still don't interest me. Consequently, I've never followed or learned drug slang, past through present. I do, however, have a sweet tooth that should qualify me for rehab somewhere. If someone (narc) asked me in the City or on the Playa if I wanted some "candy", I gotta tell you I'd be thinking M&M's or a Butterfinger. Is this dumb farmer at risk of County lockup because no one would ever believe that I thought "candy" was candy? I'm starting to get paranoid, man!
Maybe when someone offers you candy on playa, you can say "Man, I would really like a snickers bar right now" and hope they will correct you.
Or just go ahead and ask if it's "Candy Candy or Candy candy"
I see nothing wrong in clarifying about stuff people offer. One night, I was dancing with some of my camp mates and my friend asked if I wanted a drink. I thought he was offering water and said yes. He gave me a water bottle. After gulping down a big drink, I realized it was vodka. Not that I wouldn't drink vodka, but we sure had different definition for drink at that point of time
