"The nickname Pot comes from the Spanish word Potiguaya, which means Marijuana Leaves. It’s a Mexican-Spanish word that is a contraction of potación de guaya, which referred to an alcoholic drink made of marijuana leaves soaked in Brandy or Wine. The name became popular in the United States in the late 1930s and early 1940s."

The real questions is why is pot called marijuana? Marijuana is a term put out by the Reefer Madness Craze to scare Americans into making their beloved Indian Hemp/pot/cannabis illegal. It was a crazy new Devil Plant all those Evil Wetbacks were bringing into America to destroy our youth! It most certainly was not hemp, the plant that in all actuality made America.


No. Marijuana was a word for cannabis used in Mexico long before the reefer madness craze.

Pot AND marijuana were Spanish/Mexican words made up to sound scary right before prohibition started. Everyone back then knew what cannabis and hemp was, but since they used different words, it became a classic case of fear of the unknown.
