Daniel Schorr
It's taken a long time, perhaps because of a journalist's thick skin, but it has finally gotten home to me that Americans don't love journal ists. I mean, they may like some of us person ally, and they may be fascinated by us, but they have come to resent us as an institution.

Q: What is it in marijuana that causes lung cancer, as the DEA claims? If you smoke it through a water pipe, will that take the harmful stuff out of it? Is it true that one single joint is worse than a whole pack of tobacco cigarettes, like I heard on TV?

To tell the truth, I would never know it was even there, but once in a blue moon it will take you up short. "Ycch!" the woman will sometimes exclaim, after a first good look. "What happened to your thing? Why don't you get that taken care of?" It’s understandable.

Tractor pulling is the boomingest motor sport of Middle America. The idea is simple: a crazy, shit-stomping driver steers a rebuilt farm tractor pulling a 30-ton sled until either the machine disintegrates under stress or makes it 300 feet down a dirt track.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA—Narcs posing as regular, class-attending, high-school students busted 143 kids in ten city schools here in the first semester of the 1978-79 year. Some 98 percent of these busts were for small amounts of grass, generally two or three lids, but all the kids were charged with "dealing": California's decrim law doesn't apply to minors, who remain liable to the old, stiffer penalties.

The historic test case was resolved in the woman's favor by High Court Magistrate Pantaleon Mejia Garzon after government medical experts testified that grass has always been used traditionally by poor Colombians as an effective arthritis treatment and that the United States and many other countries have approved programs researching grass's therapeutic properties for a variety of crippling diseases.

Shah Muhammad Reza-Pahlavi of Iran hardly eased into luxurious retirement before his twin sister Princess Ashraf, 59, was finally exposed as one of the world's top international dope capos. With the Pahlavi family finally out of power, tongues immediately loosened: the princess's 30-year tenure at the head of several syndicates running hash and opium out of Iran, and a few more years smuggling coke and smack back in, oozed from jet-set gossip into public knowledge.

A, Craig Copetas
He was the DEA's top agent. He went to Mexico to find out why "our" drug program wasn't working. He found out. He was busted by the DEA and jailed. Then one day in jail he ate a loaded peanut-butter sandwich. As we go to press, Sante Bario is a vegetable, dead to the world of the living, not a brainwave in sight, hooked to a life support machine in San Antonio, Texas.

The Devil as he is known today comes out of the Judeo-Christian tradition. Not that he's a Jew or a Christian, or even their "opposites." But that's where he was first spotted. He was developed and marketed by Judeo-Christians in much the same way that they first handled today's God.

The cradle of history is also the cradle of cannabis. For although marijuana, like people, can be found throughout the habitable globe, it started someplace. And that seems to have been Asia. And from Asia it traveled the world. Even though marijuana seems to be indigenous to many areas of the globe, the most prized varieties are usually those that originated in Asia.

A compelling argument for breastfeeding newborn infants, for at least the first two weeks after birth, has emerged from the Harvard Medical School and Children's Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts. Mothers' milk contains a unique form of protein—polypeptides—which evidently stimulates the stomach of the newborn infant to develop quickly an inner coat of protective mucus.

The hundreds of people busted by state police at the Seabrook nuclear plant in Hartford, New Hampshire, in 1977 have lost their bid to have the busts thrown out in state supreme court. Thousands have allowed themselves to be busted at Seabrook over the last three years in "illegal" demonstrations, relying on a "lesser of evils" legal argument—that the clear and present danger posed by nuke plants like Seabrook is infinitely graver than the petty-trespass infringements on private property that the demonstrators allegedly committed.

"Up in smoke, that's where my money goes / In my lungs and sometimes up my nose / When troubled times begin to bother me /I take a toke and all my cares go up in smoke." With these words sung in laid-back unison by the world's first Chicano-Chinese comedy team, Cheech and Chong, begins Up in Smoke, the bhang-sucking blockbuster that's bringing the droogies out in droves.

Author Ed Rosenthal swears up and down and very vividly that High Times has never reviewed his book, which is sort of hard to believe. Most of us dummies around here, everything we know about dope we picked up from this book. When people call up here to get arcane grass information, we go straight to Frank and Rosenthal and try to make it sound, over the phone, as though we’d known it all for years: “From the sound of it, you got no drainage in your pot-patch soil.

Ash Hole
$25
Do the larger spliffs you roll keep falling out of the ashtray onto the floor, setting your little grass shack on fire? Well now you can solve that problem with the world's first convertible spliff ashtray and coke snorting/crushing surface. This five-pound hunk of high-quality lead-crystal cut glass represents the ultimate in functional bric-a-brac. The six-by-eight-inch square has a deep ash bowl and a long, deep trough that can hold the chunkiest of spliffs or Havana El Ropo cigars. The low center of gravity and solid heft make it almost impossible to tip over. The smooth, nonporous underside is perfect for rolling out a dozen or so lines of your favorite nose candy. The Cigar Ashtray, #N5037, is available for $25 from Hammacher Schlemmer, Inc., 147 East 57th Sfreet, New York, N.Y. 10022.

A Boost without Cables
$3.50
The people at Cobal Concepts Ltd. have developed a line of booster products designed to restore lost vitality to tired dope. The Coke Booster, priced at $3.50, is a light, tight three-gram stash vial with a magic rejuvenation cap. The cap at tracts and holds moisture and humidity, drawing useless and annoying H2O up and out of the precious flake. When the cap has absorbed its limit, it turns colors, signaling that a new booster is needed. The Grass Booster ($2.50) works conversely; soak in cold water and place with your stash overnight. The booster puts lost water vapor back into tired leaves and buds, which helps retain those precious resins that make herb worth smoking. Both products are at your local head shop or can be ordered from Cobal Concepts Ltd., 426 Broome Street, New York, N.Y. 10013.

Safe Tea Deposit
$90,000
At last, the ultimate stash! The Perpetual Storage Company has created an ultrafortified, burglar-proof storage vault deep in the heart of a 9,000-foot mountain of granite in Utah's Wasatch Range. Lined in solid steel, sealed with a fiberglass shell and protected by highly sophisticated surveillance technology, the vault's 12,000-pound door can withstand the force of an atomic explosion. A limited number of 700-cubic-foot caches are still available, eagerly awaiting your original Van Gogh (or your original Nelson Rockefeller copy of one), misprinted Dag Hammarskj old memorial stamp, love letter from Lee Harvey Oswald or any other precious substance for a safe 50-year hiatus. Simply cough up $90,000 and call the Neiman Marcus catalog people at (214) 741-6911, ext. 1225.

Pet Pot
$22
Now in the great tradition of Hula Hoops, Frisbees and Pet Rocks comes Pet Pot. In ventor J.J. Joseph went wild and took two pounds of the finest California and Hawaiian sinsemilla buds and dropped them into individual five-ounce chunks of crystal-clear lucite. Because the pot is useless, the courts and the DEA agree that there is no law broken by simple possession. You can now be the first one on your block to own one of these gems. It's just like opening a copy of High Times to the centerfold: you can't smoke it, but you can look until your eyes water. This is the perfect gift for long-term shut-ins like Cousin Manuel who's doing three to five for possession with intent to smoke. To order, send $22 (check or money order) to J.J., Box 214123, Sausalito, Ca. 95821.

This issue's "Confessions of a Viper" is the product of two authors whose interest in the dope culture is a labor of love—with money a close second. Bernie Brightman wasted 25 years as the veep of a large corporation before quitting the rat race to form Stash Records (P.O Box 390, Brooklyn, N.Y. 11215), a small label dedicated to preserving the forbidden folk songs of America's shifting underground in popular anthologies such as Reefer Songs, Copulatin' Blues and Women in Jazz.
