  • Did you do drugs today? No. But really, did you do drugs today? Everyone says "no". Maybe

  • you did. But I need you to double check. I need you to look at this list of drugs and

  • tell me honestly. Look me in the eyes, and tell me. Did you do drugs today? I did drugs

  • today. I do drugs every day. But the drug that I do is caffeine. Do you know that caffeine

  • was a drug? Are you aware of that? Do you also know that alcohol is a drug? So the next

  • time you say, "I don't do drugs", over a coffee, over a beer, or over a cigarette, guess what?

  • You're doing drugs. Welcome to the drugs lesson. Do drugs, people. Makes your life more interesting.

  • As I told you, I do drugs every day. Mine is caffeine. I drink coffee every morning.

  • Every morning, I wake up, and I do drugs. How about you? Do you do drugs in the morning?

  • Afternoon? Caffeine is a drug. Slang -- also known as coffee, tea, Red Bull and chocolate.

  • In today's lesson, I'm going to teach you some slang words about different kinds of

  • drugs. I don't think you should do these drugs. I don't recommend them. If you want to, go

  • ahead. But again, teaching you slang vocabulary will help you understand things in movies.

  • So let's go with the list.

  • As I said, we have caffeine, which is found in coffee, tea, Red Bull, chocolate. A lot

  • of soft drinks add caffeine as well. So basically, colas or Cokes. In Canada, we call it "pop".

  • Then, we have probably the most common drug ever: alcohol. The slang for alcohol could

  • be "booze". Also, we call beer a "brew". We also call beer "suds". So all of these words

  • are slang for "alcohol".

  • We're going to get into some hard drugs now. These ones are pretty, pretty terrible. One

  • of the most tragic and very common drugs, unfortunately, is heroin. The street name

  • or the slang name is "H", "junk", or "smack". There's also, like, "brown tar" and all these

  • different slang words for "heroin", but these, I think, are the most common. When you watch

  • movies like Trainspotting or -- a lot of movies deal with heroin addiction. A lot of famous

  • rock stars did heroin, and now, they're dead. Bye-bye. This is what we're talking about,

  • "H", "junk", and "smack".

  • A really popular drug, all the way from Colombia, of Pablo Escobar fame: cocaine. So many songs

  • have been written about cocaine. In the 1980s, probably the most popular drug in the world

  • ever -- short form or slang, we call it "coke" -- that makes sense, "coke", "cocaine" -- "blow",

  • "Charlie" -- I guess that's his name -- or "nose candy" because you sniff the cocaine

  • in your nose. So it's like candy for your nose.

  • There's a drug that was really, really popular in the 90s called "MDMA", also known as "ecstasy"

  • or just "E". And ecstasy comes in a pill form. Cocaine is actually a powder. Heroin is a

  • brown powder. Alcohol is a liquid.

  • And caffeine is a liquid, or it can be in solid form like chocolate.

  • The next drug that is really, really common -- and all too common nowadays -- is this

  • big long drug called "methamphetamine". You may have heard the term "meth". Now, people

  • who do meth or methamphetamine, they can inject it, which means they put it in a needle in

  • their veins. So it can be injected. And it is a powder, like heroin. Oh, heroin is injected

  • or smoked. But methamphetamine or "meth" or "crystal meth" or "crystal", as people call

  • it, is a really, really big problem in America and Canada. It's causing something called

  • "meth mouth", and "meth mouth" causes the people's teeth to rot out and fall out. So

  • the basically lose all their teeth. How attractive. Also, meth heads have a lot of scars on their

  • face. There are a lot of open sores, and they have no teeth. Beautiful, beautiful people.

  • Good idea. So methamphetamine -- street name is "meth" or "crystal". Very, very terrible,

  • terrible drug, like most of them.

  • Something that was popular in the 1960s, 1970s was amphetamine. Amphetamine is called "speed".

  • When you do speed, you talk really fast. Everything is really, really fast. So when you do amphetamine

  • or "speed", also called "uppers" because if makes you -- whoa. They're called "Bennies"

  • and also "Billy". I don't know why drugs get people's names like "Billy" and "Benny" and

  • "Charlie". I don't know why. But all of these words mean the same as "amphetamine" or "speed".

  • It makes you do things quite quickly. They've used this a lot in diet drugs because it makes

  • your metabolism work faster, and it makes you not hungry. So this is a pretty common

  • drug, and they use some different names for it. And a lot of places, it's quite legal.

  • One of the very famous drugs thanks to Rob Ford in Canada in Toronto is crack cocaine.

  • So crack cocaine is like cocaine except it's not as pure as cocaine. So there's another

  • chemical in it that makes it crack. I don't know what the chemical is. Crack cocaine is

  • also called "rocks" because it comes in a form of like a rock. I think it's like a dirty

  • white or gray color. Also known as "Rob Ford" and just by the name "crack". The full name

  • is "crack cocaine", but we just call it "crack". This is a really devastating drug, too. Not

  • as popular anymore as meth, but -- oh, God.

  • Back in the 1960s, 1950s, there were some crazy hippies that did this thing called "L.S.D."

  • L.S.D. is a psychedelic drug, man. It makes you see things. We call it, in slang, "acid"

  • or "blotter". L.S.D. is a psychedelic, so it will make you see things, like P.C.P. I

  • don't know the long name of L.S.D. or P.C.P. I think I'd be writing here for two hours.

  • So normally, we call it "L.S.D." or "P.C.P." P.C.P. is also called "angel dust". Now, this

  • is the drug that you've maybe heard about that people think they can fly. There are

  • stories of people taking P.C.P. and being, like, "I can fly!" But they can't fly. And

  • they die. So they go on top of a building, and they think they're Superman or Superwoman,

  • and they're not, and then, bye-bye. So drugs are pretty dangerous -- angel dust, especially.

  • Then, we have some other drugs. Marijuana, you've probably heard about. In slang, we

  • call it "weed" or "pot". I've also done a lesson for you about smoking marijuana. If

  • you want to check that out on the website, www.engvid.com. Smoke some marijuana. Marijuana.

  • Another derivative of marijuana is hashish, or we call it, in short form, "hash".

  • We also have something called "mushrooms". Now, you might think, "Uh-ho. I ate mushrooms

  • today. Nothing happened." "Mushrooms" are a certain kind of mushrooms. As you may know,

  • there are many, many different kinds of mushrooms. So these mushrooms or -- sorry. Spelling mistake

  • -- "shrooms", are actually -- another word we have for them are "magic mushrooms". "Magic

  • mushrooms" are a psychedelic like acid. The difference between acid -- one of the differences

  • between acid and magic mushrooms or "shrooms" is that acid is a chemical and shrooms are

  • grown in nature. They have different effects on your brain, but they're both psychedelic,

  • trippy, trippy drugs.

  • So we've got some shrooms. We have got some hash, some pot, some angel dust. You've got

  • acid. We've got some rock, made famous by this guy named Rob Ford. Rob Ford is -- maybe

  • not for long -- the mayor, or like -- you can think of it like the president -- of the

  • city of Toronto. He's been found many times on video smoking crack cocaine. The mayor

  • of my city smokes crack. That's not something I think that I'm proud of. A lot of people

  • think it's cool, though. I don't think crack is cool. Crack's not cool, kids. Just like

  • the mayor's not cool. Governments are not cool. So Rob Ford, as I told you, is the mayor

  • of Toronto, hopefully not for long. And he's been smoking crack cocaine on video. You can

  • watch it. Google that.

  • We have some speed, some Bennies, some Billy. We have a really, really common drug called

  • "meth" or "crystal" that is really devastating. We also have MDMA or ecstasy. And, actually,

  • the spelling of "ecstasy" -- I can't even do it -- is "e-c-s-t-a-s-y". So I spelled

  • "ecstasy" wrong. Bad, bad teacher. Commonly known as "E".

  • We've got "coke", "blow", "Charlie", "nose candy" for cocaine,

  • "H", "junk", or "smack", heroin,

  • "booze" -- probably the most popular drug.

  • And Number one in my list: cocaine. Have you done your drugs today? Not cocaine.

  • Number one in my list: Caffeine. Ta-ta.

Did you do drugs today? No. But really, did you do drugs today? Everyone says "no". Maybe
