Stoned (Definition)

this word is supposed to be originated in the old Amsterdam thieves and thugs slang, Bargoens, which was a mixture of Jewish and Romani (gipsies). This “secret language”, what we nowadays would call street or slang was used throughout the 20th century by crooks, cons and assorted criminals as well as by travelling salesmen. Stoned expresses a state of inertia,which is commonly experienced after consummation of soft drugs. Your extremities, arms and legs, might feel a wee bit heavier all of a sudden, like made of stone.
