Joint

J is an abbreviation of "joint," which is a rolled marijuana cigarette. Drug users or dealers looking to get high or sell some of their "product" commonly use the abbreviation.

You might hear j in real-life conversations or see j in messages online or in texts. For example, a teenager may text his friend, "You got a j for me after school?"
