Orange sunshine was available at my HS 70-72.
hope you took advantage of that Mr Halter Top....and can you post that film
Thanks. That was interesting, if more personality-driven than historically deep. One thing I wondered about was that I'd read that they made ALD rather than LSD. This reddit thread explains that was just a failed legal excuse. Also makes it clear that the sunshine Bill remembers was from a different source. Good read; Scully comes off sharper than in the film.
I am a horny guy......maybe too personal
Have not finished the movie, not sure if they mention the Brotherhood, but it was deff up and running in the 80's, for sure!!
One of the early Brotherhood leaders is featured. I don't know much but it seems that for those guys, the tragectory was from hippie ideals towards organized crime. A central figure would be Ron Stark, who supplied the sunshine that Bill remembers, and remains a shadowy figure, but produced more than Owsley, Scully, and Sand combined.
Stark was exposed as a CIA agent but was probably not driven by patriotic ideology, just playing all ends off the middle for his own gain.
I know the brotherhood existed in the early 80's for sure, and it was to get the good shit on tour.....
The book on the Brotherhood ends w/ this.......Stark is one of the figures in the story of the Brotherhood whose origins do not link directly or tenuously back to Millbrook. When the DEA were putting together a case against Stark in 1972, they had great difficulty in pinning down his personal details and were never able to get his FBI file from New York. Their reports in California and the details passed on to Europe only showed what Stark was not, not what he actually was.
The silence was finally ended late in 1982. Stark was arrested in Holland on a charge involving 16 kilos of hashish. In the summer of 1983, he was released from custody and thrown out of Holland where he had claimed to be a Lebanese bound for New York. He was arrested on arrival in the United States on a passport violation and DEA agents began to reconstruct the original San Francisco LSD case against him. They found it impossible to do so after such a long time and Stark was released.
