Andy Warhol
First of all, it's best to be born fast, because it hurts, and it's best to die fast, because it hurts, but I think if you were born and died within that minute, that would be the best life, because the priest says that way you're guaranteed to go to heaven.

High Times did not fink on the Finca Las Mercedes when we published a map of the world-famous pot plantation on page 38 of Albert Goldman's "Outlaw Strongholds of Colombia” (April ’78). It will always be our policy to protect the people on the front lines of the cannabis trade; we assure you that there has been no breach of the unique trust this magazine holds with those brave men and women.

Q: Reports of cancer risk among users of the pill have made me interested in a new contraceptive called Encare. I've heard it's a vaginal suppository that's been used in Europe and is just now being sold in the United States. Can you tell me how well it works and whether or not it's dangerous?

What makes some magazines sell out the day they hit the newsstands, each copy passing from reader to reader like sacred relics, old issues changing hands for prices way above the numbers printed on their covers, their impatient subscribers rushing to check their mailboxes every day, firing off angry letters to editors if the magazine comes a day late, loyally inspecting the masthead of every issue to spot minute changes in personnel and generally behaving as loyally as a detachment of doomed but determined French legionnaires?

The scientist's public image is no longer that of the fearless searcher for truth, for too many in science have allowed their results and their morals to be controlled by the governments and corporations who pay for their experiments. Many dedicated researchers are unhappy with the situation, but one of the few lay groups working to change it is the Aquarian Research Foundation (ARF) in Philadelphia.

Peru, one of the Organization of Dope Exporting Countries' (ODEC) leading cocaine exporters, has depleted its foreign currency reserve and is on the brink of bankruptcy. The Andean dictatorship, whose untaxed cocaine exports totaled at least $960 million in 1977, has depleted its entire foreign-currency reserve and can no longer pay foreign creditors, including the United States and the Soviet Union, without a major refinancing of its $3.6-billion debt.

For years I've been waiting for someone to step forward and bring to the appreciation of fine marijuana the attention to nuance and personality that wine tasters bring to writing about fine vintages, the sensual relish with which food writers describe the subtle savors they devour.

When I heard that most of the film critics were not exactly overwhelmed by Bob Dylan's latest film, Renaldo and Clara, I figured I should go see it, pronto. I knew if the establishment media hated it, it must be good. I already knew 90 percent of the movie would go right past me, for I have come to realize that although the "Dylanological method" was entirely accurate, I was unable to apply it to a good deal of Dylan's poetry.

Sacred Smoke of Shangri-la

Laurence Cherniak
Royal Nepalese is the hashish that connoisseurs relish most. It is, by the widest gourmet agreement, the finest, richest, most subtle of smokes, the hashishin's hashish. Its gentle breath is as clean and pleasing as the air of the sub-Himalayan peaks where it flourishes; it seizes the mind like a rush of tantric energy gurgling up the spine of a Tibetan holy man as he leaps from peak to peak in those fabled "pastures of rapture."

London is alive with rock 'n' roll, and it's all punk. In fact, going to London now is like going to Jamaica, if you replace reggae and the rastas with punk rock and the punks. So when the Ramones invited me to stay with them at the Holiday Inn and go to their concert at London's premier rock venue The Rainbow, it seemed like the ideal opportunity to nip back and check things out.

Gilbert Choate
The dope scene in England is one of surprising contrasts in which courtly old-world airs and graces contrast with the straightforward manners of the working class. As a visitor, you might find yourself one day inhaling Peruvian flake or “cannabis resin” (hash oil) in a stately manor house with a choice company of rock stars, young peers thrice descended from William the Conqueror and gorgeously groomed British “birds” (easily distinguished from female members of the royal family, who may be recognized by their resemblance, in face and form, to “Saturday Night Live’s” John Belushi).

Amos Poe
If we have learned anything from New Wave (punk) rock, it's an aesthetic for the new form: the minimal sound and the maximum idea that what is fresh and unpretentious is somehow more truthful and—maybe—more honest. What's the use of Elton John speaking of pain (unless of a hair transplant) or Peter Frampton talking of sorrow, when we all know that these two men can buy their way out of five or six infernos and can jet from here to eternity and never miss a gig?

Two ships caught napping by the Coast Guard cutter Dauntless have been towed to port with more than 90 tons of pot in their holds. Feds say it is the biggest pot bust of all time. The coastal freighter Miss Connie, flying a Netherlands flag, and the fishing boat Eco-pesca IV were discovered at anchor near Orange Cay in the Bahamas and later ordered seized by suspicious D-men.

Los Angeles fuzz ended up a good year with a 25-pound flake seizure from a mule stepping off the Miami-L.A. run. The cocaine was found in a suitcase allegedly owned by a 21-year-old Bostonian taken into custody at International Airport. By the way, that additional 25 pounds didn't take L.A. out of the cocaine-league cellar, where the cops finished the '77 season with a mere 152.1 pounds of seized blow, as against the Big Apple's 196.8 pounds and Miami's 509.2 pounds.

Courts in Arizona and Nebraska have refused to follow Alaska's lead in recognizing that the right of privacy includes the right to smoke marijuana in one's own home. The Nebraska Supreme Court ruled against Robert Kells, who pleaded guilty to possession of less than a pound, rejecting his argument that the 1972 Schaeffer Commission report had recommended more lenient penalties because grass is harmless.
