No. 107

July `84

FEATURES

Interview: Richard Beizer by George Barkin and Larry Sloman Toiling for years in the comedy mines of America, Richard Beizer has earned all the money, beautiful women and uncut Peruvian marching powder that's finally beginning to come his way. He's also earned the reputation as the funniest white man in America and someone you just don't mess with—you know, heckling him when he's onstage and stuff like that. Why do people find this man so terrifyingly funny? The answer begins on page............... 32

I Got a New Drug by `R" If you think he's created controversy in the past with his call for a ban on Cannabis indica, a month-long moratorium on smoking any kind of dope at all and his advocacy of the power of prayer, wait'll you hear what the Con noisseur is up to now. (Hint: He's found a new drug which he says is better than any pot he's ever smoked-including that Thrilla from Manila-and what's more, you can get as much of it as you want, any time you want.).... 40

"Tangier" fiction by Kathy Acker "President Reagan was just there, that's the on'y way I can describe it. I didn't want to fall in love with him because I didn't want to put something in my life, but he was screwing me so good and beating me up that I knew I was going to fall in love with him.. ." Excerpted from Janey's diary 56

Being High by Norman E. Zinberg, M.D. A professor at the Harvard Medical School's Psychiatric Department, Dr. Norman Zinberg is probably the most authentically credentialed drug re searcher in the country today. This genuine expertise has landed him on the wrong side of the New Right's antidrug demagogues and the know-nothings that form what can be laughably referred to as the Reagan administration's drug policy. Excerpted this month are sections from Dr. Zinberg's book, Drug, Set, and Setting: The Basis for Controlled Intoxicant Use 66

46 The Secret Scrapbooks of Steve Cooper, Dope Photographer, Part II What do you get when you borrow 300 pounds of primo Colombian Cheeba Cheeba buds for a photograph and return only 296? And is it possible to still take photographs once your arms have been broken? Just who was that guy with the Peter Lorre face and the incredible Afghani-Thai weed? How did an Aztec death mask (or something looking just like it) get to be this month's Centerfold? The answers are all in the final installment of Steve Cooper's memoirs.

62 Water Ways by Captain Domestic Being able to supply your plants with enough water is the bottom line in maintaining any type of successful cultivation situation. But, contrary to what the poet says, water, water, is not everywhere—in fact, more often than not you've really got to bust your pump to get all you need. This month Grow Aimerican examines the manifold ways in which to get that life-saving fluid to your little patch.
