The “Ludes” popularity peaked in the early 1970s as a hypnotic, for the treatment of insomnia, and as a sedative and muscle relaxant.  The rights to Quaalude were held by the JB Roerig & Company division of Pfizer, before the drug was discontinued in the United States in 1985, mainly due to its psychological addictiveness and recreational use.

Tommy Chong also rock the shirt in the movie Cheech & Chong “Up In Smoke.
