From a publisher of one-off exploitation zines, this hippie scare-story magazine is laid out in eleven “indictments”, attempting to expose criminality, sexual deviance, and unhealthy lifestyles of the 1960’s hippie counterculture through case studies. The surreal and exploitative nature of the magazine is only furthered by the comments from the “panel of concerned experts”.
Includes first-hand accounts of “orgiastic parties” and profusely illustrated with photographs of scantily clad, pot-smoking young people, "by the photographer who lived among the hippies."
