Miscellanea

  1. Blunt: A blunt is a cigar which is wider than a cigarillo and not quite as wide as a Corona. These cigars typically consist of two main parts; the inner leaf, which is similar to a cigarette rolling paper, except it is made of tobacco, and a thicker outer leaf which is rolled around the inner leaf in a spiral. In most commercially available blunts, the "leaves" are not actual tobacco leaves but rather paper made from tobacco pulp.
  2. Blunt: A blunt is a cigar hollowed out and filled with marijuana. It is rolled with the tobacco-leaf "wrapper" from an inexpensive cigar. Blunts take their name from Phillies Blunt brand cigars, although any commonly available inexpensive cigar or cigarillo is likely to be used, due to suitability and availability. Another common term for a blunt is an "El-P" or "L", a reference to the El Producto brand. Another commonly used nickname is "Dutches" when referring to Dutch Masters. Swisher Sweets and White Owl cigars/cigarillos are also popular with those who smoke blunts.
  3. Blunt a.k.a. Blunt Snowboard Magazine was an American snowboard magazine published in the 1990s.

The magazine was eventually sold to Big Brother Magazine and later on to Larry Flynt Publications who disctoninued it a few years later.
