High Times Magazine # 72 – August 1981

Copyright 1981 by Trans-High Corporation. Published by Trans-High Corporation. $2.50 cover price.

High Times Magazine has been chronicling the counterculture for over thirty years. First published as a quarterly in 1974, High Times is still being published (now a monthly) with its continued emphasis on marijuana use and cultivation and the fight for cannabis legalization.

High Times Magazine has many unique editorial features which you just won’t find anywhere else including its “Trans-High Market Quotations” page which lists the current market prices and supply information for various illicit drugs; a “centerfold” usually of some unusually good-looking bud; HighWitness News – recent news of marijuana, drug busts, and other counterculture happenings; and, of course, the advertisements which feature any and all kinds of paraphernalia.

High Times Magazine # 72 – August 1981 features:

Interview: Tommy Rettig
LSD ’81: Marketing the Better Blotter
Cocaine Colonialism: How the Facists Took Over Bolivia
Al-Kayf: An Instructive Guide for Travelers to Morocco
The Sorcerer’s Apprentice: Nikola Tesla, 1856 – 1953

For the comix fan, there is a 1-page Zippy story by Bill Griffith, a 2-pager by Drew Friedman, and a 1-pager by Peter Bagge.

The Trans-High Market Quotation page states that Connoisseur Colombian is”an excellent year, but late” and will set you back $440 – $550 per lb.

Condition: very nice
