I have heard the following dialogue in the TV series Marseille:

  • Drug addict: Tu as quelque chose por moi?
  • Drug dealer: Tu veux quoi?
  • Drug addict: Un gramme ou une barrette. Ce que t'as.

Does "barrette" mean "a line of cocaine" here? I could not find that meaning neither in the Word Reference dict nor in the Larousse dict.

In this context, barrette means a piece of hashish, something like 2 or 3 grams.
