Forestry Service Officers, Area Police Keeping Hippie Gathering Drug-Free
The National Forestry Service says they are doing their best to keep a Hippie Gathering in Cherokee National Forest drug free and under control. Nicole Hawk, a spokeswoman for the Forestry Service, says up to 10000 members of the Rainbow Family of Living Light are currently descending upon the park to participate in a silent mediation for world peace on July 4. Already several drug related arrests have been made but Hawk says her officers are monitoring both the inside and outside of the Hippie campground. She says for the most part the Hippies are friendly and says visitors to Cherokee National Park to are welcome to drive through the Campground which is located off Flatwoods Rd near the Unicoi Park Ranger Station. However she also adds that there are plenty of other areas, such as the Little Oak campground, for the public to camp in the same area. (hra)
