    Smile slow-acting dope

    Hello. I don't understand the below sentence.
    Does it mean Val is so slow and stupid that kids call her Valium?
    Please help!


    She shared a room with a fat girl called Val, but they call her Valium because she's a slow-acting dope.

    Re: slow-acting dope

    It's a play on two meanings of 'dope'. Try a dictionary.
