    a quarter ounce

    When somebody says "I've got five kegs and a quarter ounce" at his party, what does a quarter ounce mean??

    All I can find on the net is stuff about coins and gold, and somehow I don't think that's what it means.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks in advance.

    They're referring to marijuana.

    Some controlled substance, certainly. But would so little marijuana go very far at a party? (I'm really not an expert, honest. - But if they have 5 kegs of beer they must be catering for quite a few people.)

    I'm no expert, either; I think I read about this in the Christian Science Reading room or some place . In any case, a good quarter ounce of pot (no stems or seeds) will make about a dozen or so joints (which are passed around and shared). And not everyone at a keg party smokes. So a quarter ounce is usually enough to keep a five-keg-sized party entertained.

    Five kegs of beer would get around one hundred people really drunk (It's about 60 liters per 1/2 barrel keg 7 to 800 glasses). A quarter ounce of pot would not provide even a taste to each of 100 people. The quarter ounce (about 7 grams) is probably cocaine, which might provide at least a sampling for each of one hundred people.

    Beer drinkers aren't usually coke heads, but I could be wrong. In any case it looks like the original quote may have come from The OC:

    Kaitiln comes out and says everyone can come to her party - she has five kegs, a quarter ounce of pot, and no parents.
