What is a "lid"?

Discussion in 'Apprentice Tokers' started by Laughing Grass, Jul 3, 2009.

  1. Ok so I was watching cheech and chong and I hear chong say they smoked a whole lid and he isnt high....so i know its a slang term like zip or dub....so what is a lid? Im sure there must be some old skool tokers from the 70's that knows what that slang term is.
  2. i think its means a gram but im not sure

    edit: I think its a quarter, or "four fingers worth", prolly meanin they eyed it out with two fingers on each side of the bag.

  6. What year was this? I'm always interested to see if things were actually cheaper back in the day.

    As a guess, I checked inflation from 1970 until last year. In 1970, $25 would buy as much as $137.15 today, which is pretty normal for an oz of non-dank. So, if my guess on the year was any good, bud back in your day cost about the same as it does today, assuming you weren't buying dank.

    Back in the 70's they used to call an ounce a lid around my parts. Of course this was the same time they sold a nickle (which was 3.5 grams) for 5 bucks and a dime (7 grams) for 10 bucks.

    Ah...The good ol' days.
  8. damn I wish I were around in the 70's man cuz I would have been blazing like a mofo...i pay $600 a month for weed right now so if I spent that much back then I would always be high 24/7....hahaha
  9. Always wondered about that myself (just watched next movie cheech and chongs):smoke:
