Heard on the Judges

Spoken by a twenty-ish black woman plaintiff:

"She used _smoke dirty_ and ..."

Judge Greg: "What does that mean?"

Plaintiff: "You know, weed mixed with cocaine."

54 raw Google hits, mostly things like, " ... smoke a dirty pipe ..."

However, the following seem relevant.

"... I'll take a hit of _smoke dirty_"

"I dont _smoke dirty_. I dont need tha crack."

"I don't _smoke dirty_ no more. I only smoke crip."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
