Do You Know The Marijuana Emoji

It is the modern version of hieroglyphics and they have taken over written communication, but do you know what is used as a sub for marijuana?

Humans have used images to represent thoughts, feelings, actions and more since almost the beginning of mankind. From the French cave drawings to the Egyptian hieroglyphics, history is littered with picture codes. After having fallen out for centuries, it has come roaring back with emojis. And just to be clear, they only entered the world in 1999. If you are 25, you have always lived in a world with emojis. But do you know the marijuana emoji? It is a bit of a secret for those in the know.

Almost immediately, users begin coming up with a secret language using the clear emojis to mean other things. The peach, eggplant, raindrops, truck, and hammer all quickly were swept into a private language which has become mainstream.  Coupling emojis together reads like an ancient tablet, and can be quite a story if you know what it means.

Since there is no marijuana emoji and Apple seems not to be premiering one soon. This despite having a glass of bourbon, a martini, champagne glasses, wine, a champagne bottle in more…and little gummy or plant is not on the timeline. While there are a few contenders, the broccoli emoji is the winner. The herb, the potted plant and the leaf fluttering in the wind are among the others, but broccoli is the most commonly used.

 

When it comes to most used in general, love overcomes weed. Smiling Face with Heart Eyes is the second most popular (behind the favorite Face with Tears of Joy), followed by Face Blowing a Kiss, with a simple heart emoji the fourth most-popular.

Roughly  95% of Internet users have used an emoji and over 10 billion emojis are sent daily. While the gun is no longer an option,here are over 3,019 official emojis. The Unicode Consortium approves the new emojis and are responsible for your selection.
