The Millbrook newspaper was part of an effort to legalize the use of psychedelics such as marijuana and hallucinogens, a fight that was ongoing during the author's life. It is written as a collection of comments and anecdotes of the author's personal experiences in that endeavor. It relates the true story of his fight for justifying and defending the use of drugs.
Art Kleps (b.1928) was a drug legalization advocate. Formerly a psychologist, he founded the Neo-American Church to defend the use of marijuana and other hallucinogens, as well as peyote for spiritual enlightenment. Together with Timothy Leary, he endeavored to legalize the use of drugs for their therapeutic potential.
