The 1960s was a time of war, domestic strife, civil rights, trips to the moon and trips on acid. Inspired by Timothy Leary and his belief in LSD as way to understanding, the “Brotherhood of Eternal Love” (also known as the “hippie mafia”) set out to spread love—and drugs—throughout the world. In his book Orange Sunshine: The Brotherhood of Eternal Love and Its Quest to Spread Peace, Love and Acid to the World, writer Nicholas Schou follows the history of this group of hippies in Laguna Beach that grew into one of the world’s biggest drug cartels.
