Read This! The DEA's List of Cannabis Slang

Right here.

Some of the classics are listed, but others.... Now I've never smoked anything in my life, so maybe I'm naive as to the existence of some of these terms, but it sounds like some old person trying to be relevant.

I wonder if many of them are brand names or names for specific varieties of marijuana. For example, Diosa Verde is a marijuana supplier in Washington State.

Yeah. I'm thinking this is more like a comprehensive list of "buzz words" that include brands, strains, and some very localized slang terms.

Just skimming the list, Blue Dream, Gummy Bears, and Girl Scout Cookies are all the names of particular strains. I caught a mistake- they list "endo" but the term is "indo", which depending on who you ask is short for Indica, Indonesia(n), or indoor. Hopefully they're not busting women talking about endometriosis.

And Northern Lights, and I think Chernobyl.

I read this article last year in which the writer (Peter Bradshaw) claimed that young people were using the term "bop lettuce". He's managed to find a term that not even the DEA know about! Although personally I doubt that anybody at all has ever used that term in reality, and if they had they'd probably be in their seventies or eighties...

They might, if they're talking about smoking to relieve the pain of endometriosis.

I always felt that way about "Mary Jane". It was on all the short lists of pot slang when I was a kid, but I never heard it used seriously once.

Everyone I know who calls it "the Devil's lettuce" or another ancient term does so sarcastically. Or maybe ironically. At any rate, they're not being serious.

Default Cannabis slang

Another group I visit were discussing these and beside the name brands and strains, we figured that some of these names were given out to people as a joke, or to get people to use incorrect terms so you knew who was a narc.
