--Did you do drugs today? No. But really, did you do drugs today? Everyone says "no". Maybe you ----Do you know that caffeine was a drug?
--I do drugs every day. Mine is caffeine. I drink coffee every morning.
--The slang for alcohol could be "booze". Also, we call beer a "brew". We also call beer "suds". So all of these words are slang for "alcohol".
--Heroin. The street name or the slang name is "H", "junk", or "smack". There's also, like, "brown tar" and all these different slang words for "heroin", but these, I think, are the most common. When you watch movies like Trainspotting or -- a lot of movies deal with heroin addiction. A lot of famous rock stars did heroin, and now, they're dead. Bye-bye. This is what we're talking about, "H", "junk", and "smack".
--Cocaine. In the 1980s, probably the most popular drug in the world ever -- short form or slang, we call it "coke" -- that makes sense, "coke", "cocaine" -- "blow", "Charlie" -- I guess that's his name -- or "nose candy" because you sniff the cocaine in your nose. So it's like candy for your nose.
--There's a drug that was really, really popular in the 90s called "MDMA", also known as "ecstasy" or just "E". And ecstasy comes in a pill form. Cocaine is actually a powder. Heroin is a brown powder. Alcohol is a liquid. And caffeine is a liquid, or it can be in solid form like chocolate.
--"methamphetamine" You may have heard the term "meth". Now, people who do meth or methamphetamine, they can inject it, which means they put it in a needle in their veins. So it can be injected. And it is a powder, like heroin. Oh, heroin is injected or smoked. But methamphetamine or "meth" or "crystal meth" or "crystal", as people call it, is a really, really big problem in America and Canada. It's causing something called "meth mouth", and "meth mouth" causes the people's teeth to rot out and fall out. So the basically lose all their teeth. How attractive. Also, meth heads have a lot of scars on their face. There are a lot of open sores, and they have no teeth. Beautiful, beautiful people. Good idea. So methamphetamine -- street name is "meth" or "crystal". Very, very terrible, terrible drug, like most of them.
