What does "Reefer" mean?

Definition: A very broad slang term for marijuana or substances derived from marijuana. Can be used to refer to the buds themselves, but is also used to talk about a bowl, joint, or pipe. It's suspected the name originates with the Spanish word "grifa," which means a drug addict. The slang term was popularized through the movie “Reefer Madness," an infamous propaganda piece that attempted to demonize the cannabis plant and its users.
