Didn’t hipsters and groovers used to call pot “tea”?
As in, “these ain’t sunglasses, baby, these are my tea shades.”
Yes, “tea” was in a nickname for pot
In the TV movie The Rutles, a Beatles spoof with Eric Idle, they talked of
rock stars taking “tea”—as in the beverage—and depicted a fictional
organization—CLT, Committee to Legalize Tea, with a logo that had the initials resembling a teapot.
