Oh... you must mean a gin joint.
FIGHT ON! FOREVER!
The top of a refridgerator... I don't get it.
Correct me if I'm wrong, however, I believe in the 60's & 70's an ounce of weed was called a "lid."

Haha, no...just not stupid, and very very observant. Mama doesn't miss a thing.
Puff puff...pass. And don't get your lipstick all over the fatty please.
Don't make me get lil sister involved.
Just as I suspected...

USC S Demetrius Wright has a torn hip labrum but will not have surgery and will try to play through it with rehab work.
He would be done for the year if he had a hip arthroscopy
Urban Dictionary's definition:
"A measure of Marijuana equal to a full lid from a large Hellmans Mayo Jar. (less than an oz / about 21grams)"
That's news to me. No one in my lifetime ever referred to pot being measured in "lids". Usually just grams and fractions of an ounce or pound.
Chris... Never heard of measuring weed with the top of any kind of jar... And you're very young! LOL
A lid was about an ounce of grass clipped off the lawn. The chronic these days puts that shwag to shame lol! Man I miss the days I don't have to pee in a cup randomly.
I never heard about any Hellmans Mayo jar as the source of the term "lid"
We used "lid" and "can" interchangably
I always thought it was from the lid of some kind of can, like a coffee can or something like that
In those days, there was really no need for scales, because weed came in what were supposed to be a full kilo (2.2 lbs) brick, compressed really tightly for concealment in the smuggling process.
Smaller amounts were measured by fingers, three fingers held horizontally beside the glad bag
Then around 1970. there was a huge sea change, and we saw the first loose pounds of high quality Yerba ( Herb) with actual names
I think the guys from The Brotherhood in Laguna Beach centered around Mystic Arts World were responsible for this
First I ever saw was Michoacan that was $135 per LB and initially people said fuck that
But once people started educating themselves about the actual characteristics of Cannabis Sativa that made it psychoactive, about how the resin was produced and held in the Sinsemilla flowers or buds, it was on and we started seeing other names like Oaxaca, Panama Red and then around 1973 the first Columbian Gold hit the Southern California market and it became an arms race
We saw Thai sticks in the late 70's and that was the first time we saw the Indica that hadn't been turned into Hashish and by the early 80's Homegrown stopoed being a derogitory term and then hydroponics came in and Humboldt County expoded and so and so on
At least that is what I was told
To tie it into this thread, I guess I am saying that once upon a time, I was HIP

I don't mind a little lipstick on my fatty
Okay....that double entendre made me LOL.
You don't mind lipstick anywhere!
And I hear you use the term fatty rather loosely!
True on both statements.
Hey Blem... I don't have a clue what the hell you're talking about and I've never been on Woodlawn Drive in Laguna Beach in my life!

Fat Bobby Andrist
Johnny Freaking Gale who's folks owned Chris Craft boats
The Kulik brothers
Akex Kulik invented Honey Oil using a centrifuge
He was an OG thirty years before Ice Tea ever thought about it
Him and his brother were crossing the frontier in Afghanistan during the Russian occupation dressed up as women wearing Burkas
Those were heavy, heavy dudes
Big, heavy, metal balls
At least that is what I heard
