Intimate and Candid Photographs of Texas Teenagers Smoking Pot During an Outing in Cedar Woods, 1973

In the 1970s, the newly created Environmental Protection Agency commissioned nearly 100 photographers to document environmental issues around the country.

Marc St. Gil was assigned to record images related to the water and air pollution crisis in the area around Houston, Texas. While snapping photos in the Cedar Woods of Lankey, Texas, he happened upon several young people enjoying nature — and some marijuana. Instead of having them arrested, St. Gil captured some very candid shots of the pot smokers.
