Can You Pass the Acid Test?

New Book now available
Can You Pass the Acid Test?:A History of the Drug and Sex Counterculture and Its Censorship in the 20th Century
Here is a comprehensive reference book to songs, publications and objects of art that reflected the last century’s counter-cultures as well as government and mainstream press attempts to censor them.
Now available at and through Barnes & Noble.
The book can be ordered at www,

Sex sells and the subject is brought up several times. But this book is more of a documented history of the US drug and porn culture. It does not have a lot of gratuitous sex or drug use portrayed in it as in Memoirs or a Drugged-Up, Sex-Crazed Yippie, my fictional novel. This is more of a resourse book and will come in handy for those who want to argue about America's drug laws. It is heavily researched and has some amazing information in it. It is political and serious. So it's a completely different book, but I think many readers will want to get a copy. For one thing it exposes the racism of drug laws. It also shows how the narcotics population has remained nearly unchanged since the early 1900s. Some great arguments against our "war on drugs" can be found in this book.
