Bhairitu, marijuana gave me a wonderful, mellow experience and that was enough 
for me to want that in a natural way. A few months later, I started TM.

     Orange Sunshine was pretty mellow, Owsley's Purple Haze was rather mind 
shattering and pure Sandoz very creepy.  Psilocybin was hallucinogen without 
paranoia (LSD probably had that side effect due to stuff it was cut with).  The 
drug I stayed away from was cocaine.  I can thank Johnny Cash since he claimed 
it gave him a "deviated septum" and none us in my band wanted that.
 
 In 1970 I gave George Lucas a copy of "Autobiography of a Yogi" and he told me 
he was going to read it.  Guess he did.

    Richard, I was a long married, suburban housewife during the early hippie 
movement. Funnily enough, my hubby and I got our marijuana from a guy stationed 
at Ft. Meade! Go figger indeed. I was too scared to do LSD, thank God!

       We attended class and listened to Stephen Gaskin every Monday evening 
for several months back in 1970.  He gave lectures at the Family Dog and 
hundreds of people would gather to get high and listen to his words of wisdom. 
Gaskin is the first person to explain to me what karma means. A few weeks later 
I  was able to use that word in a sentence talking to Travis Rivers about the 
SF Oracle newspaper. Stephen Gaskin, R.I.P.
 
 This was the early days when if you had read Yogananda's book you were 
considered to be advanced spiritually. By then I was reading Tibetan Yoga and 
Secret Doctrines. Go figure. For those who were too young or weren't born yet, 
have you ever wondered what it would have been  like to be in the first wave of 
hippies that crested in the late 1960s and early 70s? Here is a nice report:
