The Worst Fashion Trends Ever to Hit the Marijuana Community

Let’s light these up before we light up.

It’s hard to say that the marijuana community isn’t intelligent, as it has produced so many writers, thinkers, and artists. It is also true that many athletes have wisely looked to cannabis for its medicinal benefits. However, it is totally fair to say that fashion has not traditionally been a strength of pot smokers. Throughout weed history, the fashions associated with smoking pot have ranged from the bad to the ridiculous, from the Bob Marley-inspired, to shirts with pictures of Bob Marley on them. Of the many genuinely awful fashion choices that have been associated with smoking weed, these are the worst.

You’ll never come closer to wearing a welcome mat on your body than you will with one of these historic bad boys. You’ll also no longer be welcome in any reputable establishments.

White People Dashikis

If you’re going to appropriate a culture, at least make it look good. There is already a word for a white person in a dashiki, and it is “muumuu.”

The Bob Marley/Lion Shirt

Nothing says, “I’m from suburban New Jersey and I listen to ska music” quite like this shirt, available at every suburban mall in America.

Rasta Beanie

For when you want the first thing people know about you to be “I smoke pot and I’m 16 years old.” Obviously, actual Rastas get a pass on this one.

Patchwork Pants

What are you, a magical hobo in a fairy tale looking to hoodwink our innocent hero? GTFO with these.

Birkenstocks

Outside of the University of Vermont campus, there is nowhere these things are ever coming back in style. Or so we thought.

Yin Yangs

Forever drawn on your fifth grade binder, on your T-shirt, and in your heart.

Weed Socks

For when you’re afraid to tell your mom you smoke, so you change into shorts in the bathroom before homeroom.

“Look like Barbie Smoke like Marley” Tank Tops

The official tank top of the freshman ladies of the Chi Omega chapter at the University of Tennessee.

High-Fringe Boots

This Lewis and Clark-inspired fashion is a worse deal than the Louisiana Purchase.

Bucket Hats

Repeat after me: Fred Durst is not a style icon.

Tie-Dye

They say if you are going to wear a loud color, you should offset it with something more muted. If you are going to wear, like, seven loud colors at once, the only way you can look muted in a tie-dye shirt is if you never leave the house.

Weed Designer Parody Shirts

Literally funny to no one but you, and that’s only when you’re way too high.

Bandana As Shirt

The most useless headwear can easily become your most useless shirt.

That Dirty Old Hoodie You Wear Every Day

Because the worst fashion is no fashion at all.

Man Beads

A man wearing these wants to smoke weed and listen to records, and by “listen to records” he means, bone before his partner—whom he swears he’s in an open relationship with—gets home.
