Muir Woods. Roundtrip busfare under $2.00. Sequoias old as the moon & taller than Jesus. Streams. Tart green clover you can chew. Drop the acid just before the bus leaves the station. Go in the morning. Stay all day. Bring a lunch, but not incense. Pray & be joyous there.
A 'head', in the language of hip, is a user of psychedelic drugs: LSD, marijuana ('grass'), mescaline, peyote, methedrine, benzedrine, and a half-dozen others that are classified in the trade as mind-stimulating, consciousness-expanding, or 'head' drugs. At the other end of the spectrum are 'body' drugs: opium, heroin, barbiturates and even alcohol. These are basically depressants, while head drugs are stimulants. But neither type comes with manufacturer's guarantee, and the Hashbury is full of people whose minds have been jerked around savagely by drugs that were supposed to induce peaceful euphoria.
(Hunter S. Thompson, 1967 in New York Times or p. 412 in The Great Shark Hunt, 1979)
