War on Drugs

1993 – Jerry Garcia was receiving death threats. Dead Tour was infiltrated by undercover DEA agents.

LSD laws changed. The federal government decided it was going to stop the psychedelic circus, known as the Grateful Dead, from making a mockery of the country’s drug policy.

First time noodlers were going down for the count, 2 year minimums, for a single hit of acid. 2 years!

Quantity? Kids were sentenced to 20 years for holding a single sheet. 20 years!

Nancy Reagan believed Deadheads were devil worshippers.

Her husband Ron, as Governor, described them:

“A hippie is someone who looks like Tarzan, walks like Jane, and smells like Cheetah.”
