What does “Toke” mean?

To consume cannabis. The etymology of this word, like most in cannabis culture, is difficult to determine with total certainty. However, it likely comes from the spanish verb “tocar,” which roughly translates to “touch” or “tap.” Toking tends to imply that a small amount of herb is being used, but some stoners like to use it ironically to describe long, drawn-out smoke sessions.

Example usage:

“Let's meet up at Felix's place before the concert to toke.”
