Default Why smoke an "L?"

The Wu-Tang Clan and many other rappers always mention a marijuana joint or a blunt by the phrase "L."
As in "We bout to roll it up and smoke an L." or

"I took the L when he passed it,,," or

"We'll watch a movie in a jacuzzi, smoke L's while you do me."

So why is it called an "L?"

A spliff rolled using 2 zigs stickied together to form an L shape ( lower case L). Or just a blunt that looks like the letter L.

L is from:

Little White Dick

Becuase when they rolled a joint, it looked like they were sucking a white man's dick.

Not to be confused with somking an L when it pertains to blunts becuase than it means:

Large Black Dick

Because when they were smoking blunts, it looked like they were sucking a blackman's dick.

I'm from England and ^^^ is how I now the term.
And if it was a really big "L" we would call it a "King L" obviously because it is superier to a normal joint, which some people call a "J"
Maybe it means all of the answers so far depending on where you are from?

when you stick the two zigs together it is in the shape of an uppercase L, when u roll it it just looks like a long joint, or a spliff. but as far as i know its because of the shape of the rollin papes.

yup, you are right...


if you run out of long papers..you can use your short papers (i use rizzla), if you stick them together, put the second paper in the other direction, you have a " L "
