In the song "Easy Skankin", when Bob Marley sings "excuse me while I light my spliff", by spliff is he referring to marijuana rolled in papers with tobacco? That's what everyone around here calls it, but earlier someone was telling me that what Jamaicans call a "spliff" is marijuana wrapped in cigar tobbaco (what we would call a "blunt"). Can anyone confirm/refute this?

A spliff is generally an oversized cone-shaped joint wrapped with large cigarette paper (like Big Bambu). It's common to mix tobacco with ganja in the spliff, but it's not wrapped with tobacco leaf like a blunt. So basically you were right and your friend was mistaken.

it's ganja no matter how you word it. It's readily found and grows wild in JA, but it's still illegal. Don't think the guys building my house really care about that little detail, lol. They smoke that crap all damn day and still manage to put the walls up straight!!
