Contrary to popular belief a Lid is not an ounce of weed. The coffee cans had a vital like a sardine can and also the Lid would certainly be wound turn off the can. The Lid supplied to measure typically contained about 4 finger of pot. People at the time didn"t have a triple scale to load pot.

wait, when they weight the weed, they put it ~ above the yes, really lid the the coffee can, or the little thing lock took off that space on choose the people on soda cans? four fingers of pot? that renders no feeling to me
I think they"d simply fill the lid with bud and also throw the in a bag. But about what does the weigh? 1/4? 1/8?

Some human being called a lid just a 4 finger bag choose the others have allready posted and also some world will say that lid means Ounce and if friend look around the web countless defs will call the LID an ounce.I wish human being still offered out four finger bags.But its true earlier in the job they would try to measure by seeing how many fingers worth was in the bag and also they would call it a day.Not this crap girlfriend see this day the means some human being weigh.To me a 1/4 is a 1/4 and so on.:joint:

An ounce seems a little bit much because that the paper definition used. Increase In acting is the many memorable movie in i beg your pardon they usage the term, in it ns assume castle smoke an entire lid in one sitting because all thats left is seeds. Now, don"t acquire me wrong, I"m sure Cheech and also Chong had actually no trouble smoking an oz in one sitting, but the time elasped seems pretty quick in the movie and wouldn"t make lot sense. Ns don"t know, its simply something that confuses me.
