Where the Friendly Stranger Got Its Name!

Back in 1994 we visited the brothers at the Church of the Universe who gave us this print of an original Reefer Madness propaganda poster used to make cannabis illegal.

When it came time to name the shop we had hundreds of ideas but none were great. Then Friendly Stranger popped out from the poster. Hey we could call it Friendly Stranger... we would be friendly strangers and everyone that came to visit would be friendly strangers too...

So that in a nutshell is where we got our name, effectively turning the anti-pot propaganda into a pro-pot slogan.
