What Does BLEM Mean?

BLEM means to be "High on Cannabis." The word BLEM is thought to be derived from the Jamaican patois language.

BLEM is also a song title from Canadian R&B artist Drake's "More Life" album, which is about attempts to convince a woman not to keep going back to her ex-partner. It contains the following lyrics:
  • I need you to stop runnin' back to your ex, he's a wasteman.
  • I wanna know, how come we can never splash and stay friends?
  • I'm blem for real, I might just say how I feel.
Of note, in the Greater London area, the word BLEM is often used as an alternative word for cigarettes.
