Hugo Bart Huges (also Hughes; 1934 - 2004) – Bart Huges attended medical school at the University of Amsterdam, but was refused a degree due to his advocacy of marijuana use. At first, he was, as the medical advisor of Robert Jasper Grootveld, an advocate for the use of marihuana, naming his daughter, born in 1963, Maria Juana. In 1964 he published "The mechanism of brain blood volume ('BBV')", also known as "Homo Sapiens Correctus", an almost three-meters long scroll in which he proposed to use trepanation (making a hole in the skull) as a means to enhance brain functionality by balancing the proportion of blood and cerebral spinal fluid, causing a natural permanent high. Using a foot-operated electric dentist drill, Huges drilled a hole in his own skull on 6 January 1965 to demonstrate the beneficial effects of trepanation. His third eye was revealed by Simon Posthuma and Robert Jasper Grootveld during the happening “Stoned in the streets” on January 11, 1965. There is doubt whether he actually drilled a hole in his skull or just superficially penetrated the skin.
