monged out
 n.— «“Now, it’s no big deal: people will roll a joint and no one will bother to comment.” Mr Cripps agrees. “It is nothing to do with expanding the conciousness. It is about hedonism. In the East End of London, the kids call it being “monged out.’”» —“No One’s Green When It Comes To Grass” by Peter Beaumont, Roger Tredre Observer (U.K.) Apr. 30, 1995.
