    this being discussed anymore.And where do you get your answers?A lid is a 3/4 ounce sack.There is no need for any more discussion about it.Please get your answers right before you answer the question.:goof:

    And now...

    the reason I know.In most states,when decrim. first hit,the cut off point was usually an ounce for simple misdemeanor possesion,so a 3/4 ounce bag was only a fine.People wanted to get as much as they could,but didn't want to get into felony land,hence the need for a 3/4 sack.You could buy it and get in trouble and not get anything more than a fine.

    Makes sense huh?:wave: A common phrase was,"I'm going to get a lid..anybody want to ride?"
    Now,of course,that is the original meaning,it could be changed to mean anything in a particular area,especially one like Canada,where it is predominately wilderness.;)

    lids are still sold today,just the term isnt as common,and neither is buying/selling 3/4ths of an O....I usually by a half O,but if its from a certain person theyll give me a lid,or 3/4ths for the price of a half but its only cuz my best friend hooks me up,lol...Id be ****ed otherwise maybe...

    what about canada?

    where a lid means wilderness?
    please correct me if i am misinterpreting but you better stick to your potatoes down in ohio

    lid, here-now, refers to your 'do, your hairdo as in "nice lid" at least when i was in h.s.

    after reading the post again i see where i got mixed up,
    it was that canada is wilderness so a lid can mean anything

    i knew i didn't quite see it right

    anyways, me and my predominately wilderness land where the caribou run free, understand now
    y'know if it's not in eskimo, i tend to lose some in the translation

    lol ;)

    "lid" is slang in the US and possibly a few other countries,but maybe not if Canada dont even use the term,an they right above us...Its also an "oldschool" term,I myself only knew what it was *im 17 years old* because I grew up around the herb,all my uncles (4) except one smoked,the one Im closest too has always had a doobie lit,lol...As I grew up I asked about different things about pot...Terms and slangs,ways to smoke and the names,weights *how much a 20 sack weighs ect* an terms...all that ****...My friends,some of them probably still dont know what "lid" means,cuz its not really that common for the almost adult/just became adults generation....

    In Olmsted Falls, OH in the 60'-70's a "lid" was equal to 5 joints. Guess that was our colloquialism.
    But it seems to be a familiar term, still.
