Have you ever heard of a Detroit Pink? What about a Racehorse Charlie? Surely you’ve heard of Smoochy Woochy Poochy & Little Green Men, right? No? Huh.. me neither. Apparently, they’re some common street names and slang for drugs, who’d have guessed? I’d have thought they were cartoon characters, but that just goes to show you what I know about drugs.
According to the US’ Drug Enforcement Agency, these are code names for PCP, Cocaine and Marijuana respectively, and there’s plenty more where that came from. The agency just released an unclassified intelligence report that lists a comprehensive and pretty bizarre list of street slang for various drugs. While some of them make sense, others I have no idea how those names got associated with these particular drugs. They also have a disclaimer that states that some of these might be out of date, or just the names of popular strains of the drug (e.g.. cannabis).
Guess you’d need to be on ’em to name ’em, or something.
