Right edge has "(c) 1965; 1987 Norm Hartweg."

Poster is printed on orange paper with black text and images. The images are divided in half with a dotted line. On the left is "Can you pass the acid test? the happeners are likely to include:" in different fonts. Around the text are random images of people and things. The right reads, "The Fugs, Allen Ginsberg, The Merry Pranksters, Neal Cassady, the Grateful Dead, Roy's Audio Optics Movies." Around the text are random images and designs. This is a reissue of a famous 1965 poster about Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters. The "acid test" refers to a cultural rite of passage involving LSD. It is disputed if the artist was Norman Hartweg (as credited) or contemporary artist Paul Foster. [LMC]
