Origin of "joint"

Discussion in 'Apprentice Marijuana Consumption' started by marijuanauser, Sep 15, 2009.

  1. Where did the name "joint" come from, its a universal name for a marijuana cigarette. What country, or person made it up?
  2. its just a name. where did the name blunt come from or bong? just names man lol joint sounds a lot better then marijuana ciggerette
  3. lol like who wants to say "Yea bro, lets go smoke a marijuanna cigarette" it sounds better when your saying 'let's smoke a joint/bone"
  4. who knows, its near imposible to pinpoint the origin of slang words because they spreads by word of mouth
  5. well yes.. but every word has its origin

    im curious myself now:smoking:

  6. there's no real such thing as just a word, every word comes from some place.

    but can you believe that even joint has a wikipedia page! i love america

    By 1821, "joint" had become an Anglo-Irish term for an annexe, or a side-room "joined" to a main room. By 1877, this had developed into U.S. slang for a (usually shady) "place, building, establishment", especially referring to an opium den. By 1935, "joint" was being used to refer to the hypodermic needles used to inject heroin and other drugs; this may have been influenced by the secondary meaning of "joint" in the sense of something done "in common" or shared. Its first usage in the sense of "marijuana cigarette" is dated to 1938.
