This alphabet of drug-references is not Sesame Street-appropriate. But it is educational.

Graphic artist Tom Scotcher brings us his first of a four-part installment in an alphabet of drug-references, courtesy of Vice. It’s pretty educational. For example, “coming up,” based on the image, is the opposite of “coming down” (that point in the night—or day—when a drug-high ceases to be fun). The others are fairly self-explanatory.
