Drug Term and Street term: Trapping

To better inform everyone, we had a round table discussion with teens from Inspirations for Youth and Families about drug and street terms everyone may want to know. The definition below is based on collective information gathered from teens within our rehab and online research.


Trapping (trap-ing) verb – to sell drugs, usually associated with a specific place such as a house where they create and sell drugs from.

Example: Devin and Sean dropped out of school and began trapping because it was easy and fast money.
