- In New Zealand, a tinnie refers to $20 worth of cannabis on the black market. The name comes from the fact that many Kiwi cannabis dealers would package a dub sack in tin foil. Not that we want to compare Aussies & Kiwis (because they hate that) but in Australia, the term used is foilie, which is different but has the same origin of the flower being packaged in foil.
