The Source Family were a spiritual, meditation based hippie cult and rock band from the early seventies out of L.A. Run by Father Yod, the long, white haired, bearded former marine and speed addict, who decided to put down the black beauties and booze at age 43, to follow a healthier life of yoga, raw foods and of coarse... marijuana. He was against drugs and alcohol, yet saw pot as a ceremonial herb that aided his deep, spiritual practices.

They eventually married and were to become the father and mother of their followers.
