Today's marijuana movement has grown from a few hardy seeds of discontent into an ongoing international effort to totally abolish pot prohibition. Change is the order of the day. Every element involved in this movement can gain valuable insights, and a more practical perspective, from a review of the monumentally successful black civil-rights movement.

While I appreciated "R". 's "Myth of the Munchies'' [High Times, "Dope," December '78], I've gotta ask why isn't he pushing "some vegetarian purity line"? After ten years of pot smoking and nearly as many years of a meatless diet, it's my opinion that the heavy, down feeling a person gets after consuming an entire display rack of Hostess products is pretty much the same as the feeling one gets after eating “thick juicy steaks well marbled with tasty fat.”

Q: Recently a friend of mine got back from military service in England with a suitcase full of 300-milligram Mandrax, which he's been selling as Quaaludes for five bucks a hit. He says that's because Mandrax is stronger, but I don't see how that can be true.

The best time to fly a kite is right after smoking a joint. If the wind is good and you have smoked the joint, it's even better. The best wind is a steady wind in late spring or early summer, especially over here in the middle of New York's Central Park.

I remember free love was a lot of fat girls with big tits running around with their shirts off. I remember a pussy was called a pussy, just like it is now. I remember sex was no better, no worse— just the same sloppy mess it's always been. Free love meant it was all right to fuck someone you just met.

The government of Bolivia has apparently agreed to allow some 550 members of the Laotian Meo tribe to settle in the heavily forested Ulta-Beni region, the foothills of the coca-producing Jungus Terrace. The Meos, who since the end of the Vietnam War in 1975 have lived in squalid refugee camps in Thailand, once made up the bulk of the CIA's crack guerrilla anticommunist forces that operated throughout Southeast Asia.

TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA—Nobody can currently be busted by state police for possession or sale of psilocybin mushrooms in Florida, thanks to a new ruling by the state supreme court here. The state law against psilocybin possession fails to distinguish Psilocybe cubensis from other varieties of wild mushrooms that look the same but don't contain psilocybin, the court noted.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA — The Provincial Drug and Alcohol Commission (PDAC) is pushing for a new law that will empower any police officer to finger any person thought to be "in need of treatment for narcotic dependency," and force that person to be examined by a civilian panel that can send that person to a "detoxification" facility for a period of from six months to three years, without trial or appeal.

ALBANY, ENGLAND— Convicts at a riotplagued British prison on the Isle of Wight are routinely dosed with tranquilizing drugs, often without their knowledge or consent, a semiconfidential prison publication recently exposed. Though all previous allegations to this effect, voiced by numerous prisoners and their solicitors, had been termed "absolute rubbish" by the British Home Office, an article titled "Treatment of Psychopaths with Depixol" in the restricted-circulation Prison Medical Journal reveals that the compulsory use of minor and heavy tranks has existed for years at Albany, and even in many far less sensitive criminal institutions.

Two Florida-bound "mother ships," carrying a total of 48 tons of Colombiano fume between them, were literally starved into surrendering by the U.S. Coast Guard on the same weekend. The CGC Point Roberts kept the disabled 70-foot freighter Peninsula de Paraduana, anchored off southeast Florida, under surveillance for two weeks after the ship's captain had left her by helicopter, instructing the crew to maintain position.

It may look like a lot of dope has been going up the incinerator stacks this month, but don't get upset. It may look as though the Dauntless and the Steadfast are scooping whole acres of reefer out of the brine, but that's nothing unusual. This is just the peak of last season's crop in La Guajira, that’s all: damn, in La Guajira there’s dope growing in every direction as far as the eye can see from a DEA helicopter.

Police in Denver have busted what they like to describe as the "first pot-dispensing machine in the United States." Detectives say the "machine" was in the form of a booth in a private house. Buyers, mostly local students, would slide their money through a drawer in the door, and a person sitting inside the booth would slide a quantity of grass and the correct change back.

Back in the late '50s and early '60s, the Smothers Brothers were among the most popular acts on the folkie circuit, playing the coffee houses that were—along with jazz dives and greaser rock joints—the center of bohemian activities. By combining credible stand-up comedy with credible folk music, they were an incredible combo.

Well, 1978 has come and gone, possibly never to return again. Whatever else the year in question may have been—and here opinions tend to vary—it was nothing if not a bumper one for dope movies. What's more, it followed directly on the heels of 1977, itself a banner annum for the psychbactive cinema.

Like the hundreds of other "average Americans" who parade daily across the television screen and pop up on the front page of the newspaper, you too have newsworthy comments about the Mideast situation, the weather, inflation.

I first met Aron Kay when I arrived at the Yipples' Bowery headquarters at 9 Bleecker Street, New York City, in the late fall of '75. There were some real crazies living there, but Aron was the craziest. I had come from Wisconsin for a live-in job at the Yipster Times, America’s only national underground newspaper.

Dick Lee
Colin Pratt
Dick Lee is a British detective (now working as an investigative writer in Oxford-shire) who commanded a secret task force code named Operation Julie that last year uncovered the greatest LSD ring ever discovered. The book, which is confined pretty much to the two years of undercover work that led to the arrest of 120 people, is a good read for anyone interested in LSD and its smuggling.

After your 7,000th LSD trip—after MDA and PCP have become just so much brain candy for you—when coke has burned a hole in your septum that you could hang a camp kettle through—what is left then, pilgrim, if not Everclear 190-proof grain alcohol, distilled in Pekin, Illinois; San Francisco, California; or Petersburg, Virginia, whichever's handiest? Everclear, "distilled from 100 percent selected grains," is getting rave reviews everywhere: you can burn-sterilize microbiological lab apparati with it, synthesize ethers and esters out of it, or transmute your liver tissue into beautiful African mahogany with just regular administration of a couple ounces suspended in orange juice or lemonade.

If there's dope in street-punk heaven, you can be sure James Dean and Sal Mineo are passing their roaches back and forth using a real Switchblade Roachclip from Stoned Sales ($3.95 plus $.50 postage to 2316 N. Neva, DF, Chicago, Ill. 60635). Just press the little button on the side and the clip snaps out and automatically locks into position. Along with the attached key chain it may not be worth scratch in a fight, but it'll sure cut the mustard with your doper friends.
