A Nation of Informers

Richard Ashley
Today, with literally hundreds of thousands of informers going about their work in America, the matter of their wretched and degraded existence becomes practically irrelevant. What’s important is the abolition of the system that makes the creation of informers necessary.

Your "Guide to Gurus" in the October issue was fascinating. But the author omitted many of the "advertised brands," so I'd like to add a few wise men to the list: Bubba Free John and the Dawn Horse Mission in California; Scientology founder Ron Hubbard, who refers to himself as the fulfillment of Buddha's prophecy; and my own personal favorites, U. S. Andersen and his Atlantis University and Steve Gaskin and The Farm in Tennessee.

Q: Are there any decent recipes for pot munchies that don't require such exorbitant amounts of weed? —Leonard Klein, Brooklyn, N.Y. A: Conservation-minded heads know that seeds and twigs can be recycled to make "garbage brownies." All you need are two cups of seeds and stems, one pound of unsalted butter, a brownie recipe and a rainy day (it takes time).

From the Muslim north through black central Africa to the slum yards of Johannesburg, sex in Africa embraces an incredibly varied range of strange laws, customs, superstitions, magic and taboos. In the Islamic world of northern Africa, in fact, most observers agree that Arabs are "abnormally concerned" with sex.

Stateside, the most successful laugh mag has, of course, been the National Lampoon, founded in 1970 and owing one percent of its profits forever to its forerunner, the Harvard Lampoon.

Susan Sontag
The Dark Lady of Pop Philosophy

[no value]
Victor Bockris
Among American intellectuals, Susan Sontag is probably the only Harvard-educated philosopher who digs punk rock. Sontag became famous in the Sixties when her series of brilliant essays on politics, pornography and art, including the notorious "Notes on Camps," were collected in Against Interpretation𠄄a book that defended the intuitive acceptance of art against the superficial, cerebral apprehension of it, then fashionable among a small band of extremely powerful, rigid intellectuals who, for example, dismissed such American classics as Naked Lunch, Howl, On the Road, Andy Warhol's film Chelsea Girls, etc., as trash.

SANTA CRUZ—An overflow crowd attended a psychedelic conference at the University of California campus here recently in honor of Dr. Albert Hofmann, the 71-year-old Swiss chemist who first synthesized and experimented with LSD. He described for an admiring audience the "unusual cycle of chemical research" that led from the discovery of LSD-25 to the isolation of psilocybin from magic mushrooms and the identification of lysergic acid amides in mornings glory seeds.

BOGOTA-Mexico has offered to exchange some 20 Colombian dope prisoners for less than a dozen Mexicans doing time on similar charges throughout Colombia, High Times has learned. The swap proposal, similar to the one that repatriated the bulk of American dope prisoners being held in Mexico, comes in the wake of new evidence here that maintains incarcerated Colombians in Mexico are being tortured, ripped off and in many instances illegally arrested.

KATMANDU, NEPAL—A new Nepalese currency law requiring tourists to spend at least $5 a day has caused a severe business slump in this mountain nation's once-thriving hashish trade. The sum may seem paltry to an outsider, but to those familiar with Nepal's hashish business, the law is indeed stiff, because it requires travelers to prove they have converted the $5 minimum at the official rate—one u.s.

Freemont narcs, responding to what they claim was a potential burglary, climbed through open windows of two tropical plant warehouses owned by Larry Williamson and discovered 2,000 square feet of psilocybin mushrooms.

If you ever wonder why many narcs shoot first and ask questions later, consider what they are taught by federal dope agents who conduct two-week seminars around the country for local and state narcotics officers. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the seminars include raps like this one, which describes the beginning of a session with 37 Georgia narcs in Atlanta: "For the next two weeks we're going to discuss the conduct of drug investigations.

WASHINGTON—In a furious series of behind-the-scenes meetings, the Senate Judiciary Committee almost legalized possession of ten grams of marijuana, briefly decriminalized up to one ounce and finally decided that holding the lesser amount should be termed a "low-grade criminal infraction."

SANTA CRUZ, CALIFORNIA—When Allen Ginsberg, Baba Ram Dass and Dr. Albert Hofmann, the discoverer of LSD, stood side-by-side, the first thing everyone wanted to know was, "When did you last trip on acid?" For Ginsberg it was the day before on the flight that had brought him to the U.C. Santa Cruz symposium on LSD. "I was doing my homework," Ginsberg joked.

A forecast released by the Business Intelligence Program of the Stanford Research Institute concluded that the fastest growing market is people who don't want to buy much. Authors Duane Elgin and Arnold Mitchell surveyed the economic impact of grown-up hippies, environmentalists, health-food fans and other grass-roots freaks and prophesied that an anticonsumerist ethic will grow stronger no matter what else the future brings.

Keith Stroup, head of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), finally became a prisoner of weed (POW) when Canadian Customs officials nabbed him at the border with a two-gram (!) stash. Released on $300 bail, Stroup vowed, "I'll fight this all the way."

Living in Miami has its advantages. Some of the best dope in the world passes through the living rooms and garages of the dealers. The heat comes and goes with the seasons, and the Drug Enforcement Agency operatives have their hands full with the constant hassle of watching each other for big brother.

Jean-Pierre Hallet
The Pygmy does not approve of tsoi, strong drink, beer or wine. The elders say that it is debilitating, and they are right. Wherever alcohol has been introduced into the Pygmy territories, the physical and moral health of the community has been all but de Stroyed.

In the beginning was the Word. As it began to get around, the Word became a cult, a high-energy form of religion that exists only as long as it isn't too popular and that gives true believers the inside track to ultimate reality. While Christianity was still a secret club, people figured if it makes you crazy enough to live in catacombs and smile at lions, maybe there's something to it.

Rock is like a multistage missile. At takeoff in the Fifties, its meaning was simple: Sex. Ignited by sex, rock nuked the Eisenhower blahs and prepared the way for the new morality of the Sixties. Kids on rock 'n' roll would suddenly get uppity and itchy and blatantly horny.

Other people fantasize the same images I do, they just don't act them out," says Los Angeles conceptual artist Chris Burden, who has had himself shot in the arm, kicked down two flights of concrete stairs, crucified atop a Volkswagen ("the trick was to use small nails") and has risked death by fire, drowning, starvation and electrocution— all for the sake of his art.

The idea is to make a bigger cassette and drive it at 3¾ inches per second, instead of 1⅞, to reach reel sound quality.

The Sex Pistols are laying it on the line in their new album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols (Warner Bros. BSK 3147). Bollocks is Brit for "bullshit." The meaning is clear. The Sex Pistols became a household word without releasing a single single in the U.S. market, one of the greatest publicity triumphs of all time.

While Lee Harvey Oswald was buying the Mannlicher-Carcano rifle that may or may not have killed JFK, thousands of miles away author Robert Anton Wilson saw a man with warty green skin and pointed ears dance in a cornfield and then fade away. In Cosmic Trigger (Berkeley: And/Or Press, $4.95), Wilson claims his apparition, which occurred the day after his first peyote trip, was Mescalito, the peyote god who has also taken the form of leprechauns, alleged UFOnauts, Disney's Peter Pan and Mr. Spock of "Star Trek."

Le Look is fuck-you fashions that tell everyone "tuck me." Wet mouths, moist eyes, hot pants in clinging nylon ciré. Safety pins can be dangerous. Look sharp, feel sharp, be sharp—wear razor blades. Dominant denim, dog collars for slaves. Whimsical whips, and such charming chains (available in metal or plastic).

Moments after their coup d'etat of the ancient dynasty of the Imam of Yemen, these revolutionaries reached for a chaw of khat, the Middle East wondershrub featured in last month's High Times. Correspondent David Lancashire snapped this exclusive photo in the city of Ta'Iz moments before the captured throne was splintered in a public axing in the palace courtyard.
