Shaggy, This Isn't Weed refers to a series of photoshopped images of the character Fred Jones from the animated television series Scooby Doo: Where Are You? with another, distorted face edited onto his own. The picture is captioned "Shaggy, this isn't weed" implying that Fred had taken hallucinogenic substances. Online, people have posted variations of the picture, adding the catchphrase to other pieces of culture.


The earliest available example of the image was posted on November 16th, 2015 by Redditor [1] thiscontradiction. The post (shown below, left) received more than 14,000 points (79% upvoted) and 250 comments before archiving.

Later in the thread, one Redditor[2] explains that face is an illustration of Adalia Rose, a woman with the genetic disorder Progeria, which has been used on 4chan since as early as July 30th, 2012 (examples below, right)
