History of the Kaw Valley Hemp Pickers
The Kaw Valley Hemp Pickers were a counterculture group in the Lawrence, Kansas area between the 1960s and 1970s. The band of "hippies" consisted of farm kids, bikers, and middle class drop outs, who harvested a local variety of marijuana called K-pot. Group members were later interviewed and written about in Cows are Freaky When They Look at You: An Oral History of the Kaw Valley Hemp Pickers by Susan Brosseau, Roger Martin, and David Ohle.
