comment “Cannabis” vs. “marijuana” vs. “weed”
In my opiion, a more direct answer, no less intelligent, must be NO. Simply. There is no difference in the diction of these terms. It does not matter the context either of these terms are used in most everyone will instantly know and understand what is meant. - Anonymous comment inserted as edit.

Yes. Additional example include, Learn You Some Erlang for great good! and Learn You a Haskell.

I don't understand this, "Also, this is commonly taught in American high school English classes and is common knowledge." To what do you refer?
