During the late 1970's, members of the Synanon cult who 'graduated' the initial stages of the membership process known as 'the game' were given these t shirts. Synanon, was the first ever 'self help–no doctors– drug rehabilitation' program, founded by Charles “Chuck” Dederich Sr. in 1958 in Santa Monica, California. The name was chosen when a member slurred the words “Symposium” and “Seminar.” One of its early cardinal rules was “no violence” or threat of same. It went from the first ever no doctor involved self help drug rehab (Synanon I), to a building of a new society in Synanon cities to lead the world into the 21st Century (Synanon II), to becoming a self-claimed religion (Synanon III). Eventually followers took on the paranoia of its founder, Synanon developed its own army called the Imperial Marines and commenced a Holy War against its enemies. Its ultimate doom came when Dederich and members tried to kill Pacific Palisades lawyer Paul Morantz by means of a de-rattled rattlesnake in the mailbox.
