A Riverbank, California school has banned all clothing that features the image of slain Bay Area rapper Mac Dre because of his alleged “glorification of drug use.”

Dre, who is considered the inventor of the Hyphy movement in hip hop, was gunned down in Kansas City, Mo., in 2004 while returning to his hotel after a concert performance.

Riverbank Unified School District board members voted unanimously on January 9 to ban clothing bearing the MC’s image or brand name at the district’s high school, Riverbank High.

Mac Dre’s clothing was added to a long list of banned names and labels that the school district prohibits from the dress code.

School officials said Mac Dre's popularization of the word "thizz," which is street slang for the drug ecstasy, was the reason the rapper's image was banned from the school. Other phrases and brands on the banned include "eight ball," "Joe Camel," "Nor Cal," "Rolling Hard," "Sol Beer," "south pole" "vato loco" and others.

“Thizz” means ecstasy?

What the hell does “Joe Camel” mean? Cigarettes?

“South pole”???

WTF? I suddenly feel 100 years old…
