Druggy

adjective; compounding
Excellent, nifty, groovy, cool. ('a dudely gadget') Originally, the word 'dude' referred to an American city slicker who vacationed out West. It was later popularly used in reference to people, originally males, who were somehow "cool." The female version of the word was 'dudette.' Now, the word 'dude' seems to appear most often as an interjection with a wide range of uses. It can convey approval, congratulation, or even a salutation. If 'dude' is taken to mean 'someone or something that is cool (in the modern, slangy sense),' the addition of the adjectival morpheme '-ly' would give 'dudely' a meaning like 'resembling someone or something that is cool,' which can be shortened simply to 'cool.'
 
That's dudely.
Etymology : formed from 'dude' + '-ly'
