: "Skin one up" was used on a late night talk show near the beginning of the show. Apparently an instruction to the viewing audience at home. Didn't mean anything to me. Googling brought up a quote that appeared to be usage in a similar context i.e. rather like in the US we might say get a beer and get comfortable or some such. Is "skin one up" new slang or European or what?
It is a reference to the use of illegal drugs. I don't know whether it is exclusively European.
