Puff mad L's but never passed out
An “L” is a marijuana cigarette. The etymology is uncertain — some argue it comes from the use of the rolling papers from El Producto brand blunts; others that two papers were used to roll a joint with a right angle in it, forming the shape of the letter ‘L’; some that it’s short for “long” to refer to an extra large joint made of multiple wrapping papers — but the slang has long been common in New York. E.g., Painkillers , Get Lifted.
