Yes, doobie was always a bit of a wanky American high-school name, but then with the possible exception of the sublime Black Water and Takiing It to the Streets, the Doobies' mindless chugathon boogie numbers were always a bit wanky and American high school themselves.
That said, with the entry level drug of choice around our way being nasal passage-shredding sulphate, if I'd asked any of my contemporaries if they'd "care for a toke on my doob" when I was growing up, I'd have had my head stoved in.
Good news, Britishists, you pronounce it the way you (wrongly) pronounce "boogie."
Now, consult with John Lee Hooker and learn how to say that word properly.
