Powder Ridge, Middlefield, CT, USA, August 1, 1970. Due to a legal injunction the Rock Festival planned in the local Ski Area was prohibited by the local authorities. Nonetheless 30’000 ticketholders gathered anyway to the location, setting up camps for the whole weekend. The amount of drugs circulating in the area (especially lysergic substances) reached dangerous levels, leading to a consistent number of medical emergencies due to drug abuses.
