Over the years, fans of the old Dope Rider comic strip from High Times have occasionally contacted me asking for copies of some of the images, which they intend to have tattooed on their backs, painted on their drum sets, or airbrushed onto the gas tanks of their Harleys. To make it easier for these folks, and to create an archive for anyone interested, I have set up this site to post the complete Dope Rider oeuvre. Note: all images are copyrighted by Paul Kirchner.

The Man in Dope Rider's Head

Me and my beautiful one-and-only Sandy at a '60s-themed party the other night. First time I've had hair on my head in 20 years.

Dope Rider, High Times, February 2015

This is the second one-pager I did for High Times this year. It was inspired by the weird situation in California that, while the sale of medical marijuana is legal the transport of it may not be, based on the whims of local law enforcement. (Maybe a bit much to try to squeeze into one page.)

Just for fun, here's the opening frame without any text.
