If you’re looking to purchase some legal marijuana in Massachusetts, you might want to get ready to ask for some . . . “shoes”?
The federal Drug Enforcement Administration this month released a list of slang terms commonly used to refer to street drugs. The terms used for “marijuana” made up one of the longest entries — and some of the weirdest names.
By now, most Americans are familiar with referring to marijuana as “pot,” “weed,” and “reefer.” But the list included some names that might be unfamiliar to most: “Shrimp,” “Smoochy Woochy Poochy,” “My Brother,” “Popcorn,” “Arizona,” “Fluffy,” “Baby,” “Mowing the Lawn,” “Big Pillows,” and “Salt and Pepper,” among dozens of others.
Of course, some of these terms drew quite the reaction online.

Apparently the feds think people call weed "shoe" and, uh, "big pillows."
