i was reading this essay online and this was in it...

"In the 1970s cocaine was a status symbol for aspiring middle-class sophisticates. It was described as a drug without a downside. The Grateful Dead wore spoons around their necks and peddlers worked the crowds selling paraphernalia to their fans."

now i know the band members especially jerry loved powder and i've seen people bumpin in the lot but spoons around their necks?

But the spoon thing has been a symbol of that since the 60's.No big news there.
