    do i sense a sticky?
    this should be pretty useful for any new smoker.

    I've also found a few errors:

    - You misspelled Tetrahydrocannabinol (I hope my correction was spelled correctly, I tried without looking it up)

    - I would get rid of this term from the list, it's not really "gangster" and it's meaning is somewhat obvious, even to novice smokers.

    - the term Sploof would be useful in there. I'm sure you know what this is

    - may also want to add the term Green Dragon

    - This one isn't really a correction, more of an opinion. I live in America and me and everyone I know refers to a roach as:
    the remains of a smoked joint. these are usually smoked themselves as they usually contain bud.

    - not necessarily conical (at least i don't think they are)

    - Be Careful, in some areas Chronic refers to marijuana that is laced with cocaine (intentionally) to produce a stronger high

    ah, I wouldn't say wasted ;)
    I'm sure this list will be helpful to lots of people
