DEA Drug Slang Terms and Code Words 2018: A Reference for Law Enforcement Personnel

Slang Terms and Code Words: A Reference for Law Enforcement Personnel

This Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Intelligence Report contains new and updated information on
slang terms and code words from a variety of law enforcement and open sources, and serves as an updated
version to the product entitled “Drug Slang Code Words” published by the DEA in May 2017. It is designed
as a ready reference for law enforcement personnel who are confronted with hundreds of slang terms and
code words used to identify a wide variety of controlled substances, designer drugs, synthetic compounds,
measurements, locations, weapons, and other miscellaneous terms relevant to the drug trade. Although
every effort was made to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the information presented, due to the
dynamics of the ever-changing drug scene, subsequent additions, deletions, and corrections are inevitable.
Future addendums and updates to this report will attempt to capture changed terminology to the furthest extent
possible. This compendium of slang terms and code words is alphabetically ordered, with new additions
presented in italic text, and identifies drugs and drug categories in English and foreign language derivations.
