dime bagEdit

Added with no formatting; I cleaned it... but is the term really used? -- Beobach972 21:31, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

It’s very common in the U.S., but I wasn’t sure of the meaning. I always thought it means "$10 worth" of marijuana, but the article claims it means one gram. I’m sure the contributor knows much more about it than I do. —Stephen 21:55, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
I agree with Stephen; firstly, I've encountered the term before, which means it must be pretty common (given my cluelessness about pop culture), and secondly, the term gets plenty of b.g.c. hits, but those that define it define it as "$10 worth of any drug" or the like. —RuakhTALK 22:04, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
While I admittedly never got into any harder drugs myself, I was always under the impression that dime bag specifically referred to marijuana alone, and to $10 worth, not a gram. Atelaes 22:37, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
Yes, the term is clearly in widespread use, but I agree with the previous definition clarifications. (Odd that Google suggest, suggests the rare spelling dimebag. I've only ever seen it as two words.) --Connel MacKenzie 02:04, 21 March 2007 (UTC)
Alright, I clarified the definition to reflect that. I left the RFV tag in case anybody wants to give examples of use in support of a specific meaning one way or the other.-- Beobach972 02:36, 23 March 2007 (UTC)
I've removed the RFV tag now, since it doesn't look like anybody did. —RuakhTALK 23:12, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
