Marijuana sounds better but I don't like it because of its origin. I.e. the name was invented by the U.S. govt. to make people associate it with Mexican immigrants. It is essentially a propaganda name (or so I've heard, I don't have a source on this), similar to the recent trend of calling salvia 'Mexican Tripping Weed'.

“Strengthened by contemplation and study,
I will not fear my passions like a coward.
My body I will give to pleasures,
to diversions that I’ve dreamed of,
to the most daring erotic desires,
to the lustful impulses of my blood, without
any fear at all, for whenever I will—
and I will have the will, strengthened
as I’ll be with contemplation and study—
at the crucial moments I’ll recover
my spirit as was before: ascetic.”

I think technically it would be more accurate to call it Cannabis. It's the scientific name, and they seem to be going for that approach.

Quote:

The name marijuana (Mexican Spanish marihuana, mariguana) is associated almost exclusively with the plant's psychoactive use. The term is now well known in English largely due to the efforts of American drug prohibitionists during the 1920s and 1930s, which deliberately used a Mexican name for cannabis in order to turn the populace against the idea that it should be legal, playing upon attitudes towards race. (See 1937 Marihuana Tax Act). Those who demonized the drug by calling it marihuana omitted the fact that the "deadly marihuana" was identical to cannabis indica, which had at the time a reputation for pharmaceutical safety.[77]




from wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannabis_%28drug%29

This is why I prefer that term cannabis.

I'm a big fan of the word cannabis... it's all I say.  I don't use 'weed' anymore.  :awesome:

i tend to use the word nuggets or nugs in normal situation.

just cause cannabis doesn't roll off the tounge as easily.
