Scope and Contents
Counter-culture era 'pro-drug' poster are often humorous, making liberal use of word play and double entendre. Many images printed by early Psychedelic poster artists gained popularity and were printed, and reprinted by distribution companies and appear in varying production styles and colors. Posters such as R. Crumb's "Stoned Agin!" would have featured in countless college dorm rooms. As a result some duplicates in this series may be printed by different companies or on different media.
