Submitted by: fancylad 4 months ago in Lifestyle


In 1973, Marc St. Gil was assigned to take photos related to the water and air pollution crisis around Houston, Texas for the newly formed Environmental Protection Agency. While taking the photos, he ran into these teens enjoying the scenery, smoking reefer, and having what looks like the best day ever.

St. Gil worked for the US Government and he sould've turned them in -- instead, he asked them if he could take a few candid shots.


In the 1970s, the newly created Environmental Protection Agency commissioned nearly 100 photographers to document environmental issues around the country.

Marc St. Gil was assigned to record images related to the water and air pollution crisis in the area around Houston, Texas. While snapping photos in the Cedar Woods of Lankey, Texas, he happened upon several young people enjoying nature — and some marijuana. Instead of having them arrested, St. Gil captured some very candid shots of the pot smokers.

This guy was about 49 when these were taken I think he was just a perve trying to get some young stuff. I was in my last year of high school at this time been there done that. You could get the best Colombian for about $10.00 to $15.00 for a good four finger ounce, no stems no seeds.
