Alston “Smiles” Hughes, was one of the main distributors of LSD in Wales during the 1970s, who was arrested as a part of Operation Julie, a UK police investigation into the production of LSD by two drug rings during the mid-1970s.

The operation, lead by Dick Lee resulted in the break-up of one of the largest LSD manufacturing operations in the world. It culminated in 1977 with enough LSD to make 6.5 million 'tabs' with a then street value of £100m (equivalent to £626 million today[1]) being seized, 120 people arrested in the UK and France and over £800,000 discovered in Swiss bank accounts.
