: Sorry I forgot it but there is a new slang word going around like clutch, group or bunch, specifically meaning the group of smokers outside buildings. I've seen it in blog-like magazines. Perhaps Slate.
I'm not finding it. I did find some other smoking phrases. http://www.wordspy.com/ has: buttlegging, chipper, nico-teen, smoke-easy and smoxploitation
