So I was watching Cheech & Chong’s Up in Smoke last night, and at one point they are on a quest for a “lid”.
I got to wondering, whatever happened to the lid? My parents in the 60’s were very familiar with a lid; In the 90’s I was only familiar with the eighth or ounce. (In the 00’s I just have a bad habit of watching dumb movies. )
When did the shift away from saying “lid” happen and why? A SD search and a Google search have not been helpful.
