A song by Jimi Hendrix
, (probably) named for a "legendary
" type of marijuana
that was only available in the '60s. According to those who've had it, Purple Haze was the original one-hit shit
. The formula
appears to be lost today, although you can still buy weed
called by that name.
I think it's cool that there is a common mythology among pot-smokers about this. Joseph Campbell would have been glad.
