  • Description

1971.8 1/2" x 11". Wisconsin. NEAR MINT. Original handbill announcing the Yippie Smoke-In held in Madison, Wisconsin on September 25 (1971). SIGNED by Paul Krassner, a founding member of the Yippies.

Illustrated with Gilbert Shelton’s Fat Freddy with speech bubble declaring “Help End Marijuana Prohibition!”, and lists four demands. A slogan along the left margin reads “Free Dope - Free Dana”, a reference to Yippie activist Dana Beal’s arrest by Madison police for being charged with posessing marijuana and selling hashish while hitchhiking on Interstate-94 . The rally was followed by a mass march to the Capitol in support of Beal and to expose “the CIA conspiracy which currently provides 80% of the heroin in this country”, and ended in a protest outside the jail where Beal had been placed in solitary during the demo. NEAR FINE. RARE.
