I have read and agree to the conditions outlined in the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

  1. Around here in the States, dope is the most popular term. It used to mean any drug, but now its mainly associated with Heroin.

  2. It must all be down to the locale-in Merseyside UK, names include brown, bobby (as in “Bobby Brown”), swag, tackle, nasty, dark and gear (“gabs” in backslang). I seem to remember it being called bang in the past but most people opt for the term “brown” (as heroin is marketed aggressively with crack-“white”-e.g. Gimmee 2 white an’ 3 brown). Other drugs are also colour-coded-diazepam are whites, yellows or blues (depending on mg) although some of this is generational too. Green, to someone of my age (42) would mean methadone-to someone of 30 (or younger) “green” means skunk-type cannabis.
