This is the poster version of the full page advert placed by Brian Epstein ( &/ or Peter Brown) and paid for by the Beatles in response to Hoppy’s & the Rolling Stones drug busts in 1967. Gallerist Robert Fraser, a friend to both the Beatles & Stones, was also arrested along with the Stones, he was the only person actually given jail time.
The poster was issued by Steve Abrams’ SOMA (The Society of Mental Awareness). In June 1967 he started the petition for the Times advertisement. In July he organised the Legalize Pot Rally at Speakers Corner in Hyde Park. Martin Sharp designed two posters in relation to that event, one of which was printed on foil and became Big O Poster #1.
This poster was sold at Indica Bookshop and else where. This copy came from Abrams own collection.
