This sweet vintage shirt features a colorful graphic that reads, "Keep California green grow grass", but the grass this shirt is talking about isn't the typical kind you find in nature. This shirt, which was made back in the 70s, is a nod to California surf culture and its connection to cannabis. Surf culture and marijuana have a long history together. Hawaii is considered the birthplace of surfing, and native surfers have been indulging in the drug for many years, often naming different strains after the regions where they're grown like Kona Gold, Puna Buddaz, and Kauai Electric.

When surfing drifted to California in the 1950s, so did marijuana, and both became aligned with the counterculture of the 1960s. During the 60s and 70s, many surfers doubled as drug-smugglers, as premium hash was being imported from across the Pacific Ocean. One of the most notable and potent strains was Thai stick, which came to the US from Thailand and was smuggled in by Southern California surfers.

Fits like a modern unisex adult medium. There is repair near the graphic, see pics.
