HomeGrown Magazine. VOL.1 No.3 Summer 1978

4.00

Welcome to our third issue, we would like to say “high” to our brothers and sisters in North America, the rest of Europe, and elsewhere, as Homegrown now extends beyond the shores of this island.  I published over 30,000 copies and went to New York to launch the magazine there. “Northern Toke welcomes Homegrown to America” was the slogan on the t-shits, and a few months later they went bankrupt and I never got paid. Lucky I had some full-page adverts for American paraphernalia.

Another beautiful artwork front-cover by John Higgins, my favourite cover of the set of ten.

In-depth report by Max Handley on the Operation Julie LSD trial in Bristol Crown Court, where Mr. Justice Park sent fifteen members of the conspiracy to the slammer for a total of 120 years. Detective Inspector Lee was threatening to sue Homegrown for libel until Steve Abrams told him it would be a waste of time because I had no money and was living on the bread-line. 

I asked Mick Farren, radical writer and rock musician to write a piece for the magazine and I got “The Complete History of the World” part one, an anarchic, funny fable. Michael Marten gives us another expose of the U.S. army drug tests, “Psycho-chemical Warfare”

The Legalise Cannabis Campaign was inaugurated at a public meeting at the Central Hall, Westminster in London on a Saturday afternoon on the 3rd of June 1978. Cannabis has been illegal for 50 years.
