ive heard this term in many places, mostly cheech and chong, but what is a lid or how much is a lid?
a lid is an old term for an ounce
is three quarters of an ounce.:wave:
I heard its an ounce plus like a little more.
ahah to keep this thread confusing ...
i'll say a lid is 1.23 ounces
I don't understand...
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:
I'd trust dedbr on this, as he was buying weed back when they sold it in lids.
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.
I was offering my 2 cents, thanks for setting it straight.
my dad told me a lid when he was a kid was a sandwich bag filled about 4 fingers thick
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.
let me know if i didn't understand you
d'ya like the razz about taters? i know, that's the point
even the Bear can learn something! But were we talking about Canada?
I'd say we have more corn than potatoes in ohio
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
Re: And now...
that's what i was yammering about
"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.

You guys in Olmsted Falls mustve rolled BIG joints back then.
Whoaa now ded ol friend.
Back in the day, our day, my day, a lid was an ounce, pure and simple...
