Poster printed with green and black ink on light brown paper. A green rectangular border with plant leaves at the corners and a geometric shape at top center frames the page. A graphic inside the border shows three figures at top. A bare-chested female with a lower body composed of curved lines appears at top center. Just below are symmetrical images of two men in profile wearing turbans and loin cloths. Both men are smoking pipes and the smoke is integrated into a pattern of organic shapes that surround the three figures. A flower appears just below and extends downward to a cluster of mechanical shapes arranged in a symmetrical pattern. "Amorphia" is printed at bottom center below the graphic.

At the top is what appears to be the International Harvester corporation "IH" logo. Amorphia was founded in 1969-1970 in Mill Valley, California by Michael Aldrich and Blair Newman to promote the legalization of marijuana. They sold "Acapulco Gold" brand rolling papers to raise money, and eventually their campaign included a news service, a speakers' bureau and legal experts. Amorphia sponsored the first California Marijuana Initiative in 1972, when it merged with NORML (the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws). [LMC]
