What does “Green” mean?

It's no wonder that the term “green” became slang for cannabis--high-quality weed is well-known for its lush coloring. It likely originated as a more low-key way of referring to weed in areas where it’s illegal, but nowadays it’s pretty much common usage. The color itself is also used to on adult use storefronts and medical dispensaries (such as on green crosses or signage) that signal the sale of cannabis and its related paraphernalia.

Example usage:

“I'm running low on green. Anyone want to come with me to the dispensary?”
