Very common where I'm from (UK), but many of my mates are junkies. --Brandnewuser 23:16, 21 June 2006 (UTC)
Thanks all. It doesn't make much sense in en-us, so I thought I'd ask. --Connel MacKenzie T C 18:12, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

In Season 1 Episode 5 of the UK comedy series Teachers, Kurt says to Susan (whom he thinks is Brian) "Skin-up?". Based on the 2 character's history, the implication of smoking pot is consistent with the notion that "skin-up" is slang for smoking marijuana, especially rolled into a cigarette with papers (referred to colloquially as "skins").
