Scarce first printing of the first issue of legendary drug culture magazine High Times.
Issue includes articles by Timothy Leary, John Wilcock, Jack Frazier, and others. Founded by Tom Forcade of the Underground Press Syndicate, this premiere issue was meant as a joke, imagining an underground press paper as a glossy magazine, lampooning Playboy and other mainstream media offerings. However, High Times struck a chord and is still publishing today, a major voice in drug culture and the legalization of marijuana.
