ONE TYPE OF ACID was particularly popular among American ground forces in Vietnam. It was called " orange sunshine," and much of it was smuggled in from southern California during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Far from the rice paddies of Southeast Asia a group known as the Brotherhood of Eternal Love was waging its own holy war of sorts in their tireless efforts to turn the world on to LSD. During their heydey the Brotherhood ran the world's largest illicit LSD ring.
