dude do you know how many hard core hippie stoners never owned a tie die or lavalamp and how many who never touched a thing own both and beeded doors etc
besides it was just something to sit the soap on to photograph it shes not so great at those things so her husband or daughter took them
theres nothing associated with drugs about the soaps or tie dies and i think you worry too much about perceptions to the point of avoiding products not on other peoples perceptions (which you admitted to worry about) but your own
now it might surprise you that 1/2 the painted up 'hippie' busses on the road belong to church groups or mobile food kitchens
someone wearing crystals or peace signs might be just kind people not chronic potheads
id say at least 80% of music, art, creativity and culture has associations with "drugs' you could miss out on the greatest things in the world just cause there maybe some perception of association with drugs.
maybe you had bad experiences with drugs i did too .. drugs in a general sense are bad news (herb in a medical sense is a life saver though andif taken full advantage of industrially medically, for food and fuel, would change the future) maybe it ..any association acts as a trigger for ya
maybe you were in too deep or just got out
but sometimes innocent things rigger bad memories but avoiding all those things only gives them power
if instead, se had a native American artifact like a medicine shield behind it would that give you the urge to do a sundance and pierce your flesh with a boars rib?
if there was a car in the background ..a ford and your a chevy man, is that reason enough to avoid a product?
i'm sorry i understand if you had a bad history with drugs but don't see why it should influence you on such a micro level when its just a corner of fabric behind i think only 1 maybe 2 products
