There are two excellent books on the topic which Patty has just finished: "Orange Sunshine" by Nicholas Schou and "The Brotherhood of Eternal Love (From Flower Power to Hippie Mafia: The Story of the LSD Counterculture) by Stewart Tendler and David May.
1) BEL founder John Griggs died on August 3, 1969 in the only ever documented psilocybin overdose. The only one, EVER. Does that seem weird to you? Could someone have possibly been "cleaning house?"
2) In 1966, Griggs relieved a "famous producer" at gunpoint of his stash of LSD right in the middle of a dinner party. Who was that producer?
3) On pages 9 and 174, you mention the Charles Manson Family, and then back off again. Why? Do you think that Manson may have become involved with the BEL organization in San Francisco while eating at the Living Room soup kitchen?
Patty to date has received no reply from Schou.
But wait...there's more...
Thanks Sunset for the link:
