hippie (OED, 2., 1966)

1965 _San Francisco Examiner_ 14 Oct. 6/1 (Newspapers.com)  One of the oddest amusements I heard of while posing as a member of the Berkeley Underground was that of a group of hippie students who thought it great fun to sit around smoking marijuana and playing the game of Monopoly.
