dopey (the dwarf ) got his name because the other dwarves thought he was stupid 

dope is a synonym for idiot.  and the adjective dopey is similar to stupid.  like how american news personality bill o’reilly refers to the british royal family as “dopey people in the carriage” in this video, his idea is that their traditions and behavior are dumb.

dope can also mean recreational drugs, like in lady gaga‘s song dope, where she regrets the rock and roll lifestyle and various times says i need u more than dope.

this portrait of a drug dealer from compton, california at the end of the 80s by nwa is another memorable example

but the most common application of the word nowadays is to express that something is cool.

kevin hart told the students who got the scholarships that they are the dopest 

kevin hart, perhaps the hottest comedian in hollywood right now provided 4 students in north philadelphia with $50,000 scholarships. during his presentation, he let the kids know how impressive he thinks they are. philly.com reported

[hart told them ] “what you’re doing is dope. you’re dope. you’ve got the opportunity to be the dopest of all dopetivity.”  beyond their inherent dopeness, hart selected the scholarship recipients as a way to reward their high gpa’s and alleviate some of their financial need.

gpa is an abbreviation for grade point average, a quantification of academic performance.
