Storm King Today on Hempresent
Storm King joins us today on Hempresent with Vivian McPeak only on Cannabis Radio. Storm King is a retired social media, social activist who loves telling stories about growing up as a hippie. He was raised by his mother, Marge King, and some went by his aunt, Jean Mayo Millay. For various reasons, those two ladies ended up smack dab in the middle of some of the most seminal events of the hippie era. Including the famous 1966 Watts Acid Test. And the 1967 Monterey International Pop Festival. Storm was also in attendance, as one of the few children, at both those events. His family members were devout followers of, and to a degree, friends with, Timothy Leary, whom they met in 1964. Storm received his first dose of very pure LSD from his mother in the proper set and setting in the fall of 1965, just before he turned 12. After an initial career as an electronics technician, Storm went back to school later in life and got a Ph.D. in clinical psychology. He has a blog page that tells the many stories he has to share of growing up as a hippie at www.ramdasslove.org. He’s here today to tell us stories of what it was like to be a child raised by adults who became friends with counter-culture icons such as Timothy Leary, Owsley Stanley, and Ram Dass.
