Published by LEMAR on January 30, 1965, a marijuana legalization organization, and created by Ed Sanders, Peter Orlovsky, and Randolfe Wicker, The Marijuana Newsletter! seeks to spread awareness and information on the campaign to legalize marijuana, with writings by William Burroughs and others about the benefits of the drug. Contributors dissect the ways in which the government and media fuel the paranoia and misinformation spread about marijuana. Incredibly ahead of its time, scarce, and a very clean copy.
