What does Dope Mean? Which drug does dope refer to? Today on Lex's World I wanted to have a little rant about that word, as well as show you what happens to weed after it goes through a vaporizer. Dope can either mean Marijuana or Heroin. Usually those who don't smoke weed refer to weed as dope. What's bizarre is that despite both drugs being completely different, the word is used interchangeably. It's also used in a derogatory manner towards Cannabis by police with the same tone it was in used during the 1920s and 1930s. Having two such different drugs having the same word hasn't been good for pot culture. And thus, as a rule, I never say dope.
