You might think a name like Marijuana Pepsi is right of out an old Cheech and Chong stoner flick.

But Marijuana Pepsi Sawyer is the real name of a Beloit, Wis., high school teacher.

An aunt remembers the name Marijuana Pepsi seemed to fit right into the post-Woodstock era of the early 1970's.

But Sawyer says it was tough growing up with that name.

She says from the teacher taking attendance in class, to filling out paperwork, her name is never ignored.

Sawyer tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel people always think she's joking.

While she's named Marijuana, Sawyer says she's never touched the stuff herself.
