I think it is used more as a slang term when referred to as a herb!

Usually a herb is referred to as a plant used for seasoning purposes! I think in this sense it would be tongue in cheek to use "herb" to refer to marijuana ....

A herb may also be used to refer to a plant used for medicinal purposes too however. There are of course both some legitimate medicinal purposes for marijuana as well as more general recreational use.

So to refer to marijuana as an herb is both true but also often used in a sarcastic type reference!

I hope that this is helpful for you! Best regards!

Thank you very much, It doesn't make sense that it would be made fun of sarcastically and it sucks that it is taken that way. It makes it kind of tough to discern. Finding truth a little clearer thanks to you. Have a Good night!
