Kent State and Dealing

Of all the Kent State martyrs, Sandy Scheuer was most indisputably an innocent victim. Sandy was splitting—that was the last thing she said to her friends before the Ohio National Guard shot her in the back. How ironic, in the end, that it should be Sandy Scheuer's small, frightened-looking mother who alone stands up to the state.

Michoel Chance
It is the most dangerous sport in the world. Airplanes, racing at speeds approaching 450 miles per hour, battle it out, prop to rudder, around a circuit of towering checkered pylons, all for a taste of glory. High-speed stalls, exhaust asphyxiation and midair collisions keep death nearby.

This month I’d like to celebrate the three best new varieties of grass I’ve encountered in the year I’ve been doing this column. They’re each so good that they have earned my soon-to-becoveted seal of approval as BEST HIGH of the year, BEST BUY of the year and the NEWCOMER MOST WORTH A TRY this year.

Nabilone Testing Stopped: Top Doc Prefers Real Grass Over Synthetic THC
[no value]

[no value]
Eli Lilly & Company of Indiana has discontinued clinical cancer-chemotherapy tests on Nabilone, the synthetic analog of THC, thus possibly easing the way for full legalization of real marijuana for a variety of therapeutic purposes. As recounted in "Highwitness News" (February '79), Nabilone was developed by Lilly and billed as a nausea-reducing drug, as effective as grass at alleviating the emetic effects of cancer-chemotherapy agents but without the "euphoric" effect of THC.

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Researchers at the National Institute of Mental Health have determined that in certain dosages the drug physostigmine appears to induce rapid-eye-movement dreaming sleep in healthy male test subjects. All other sleep-inducing drugs currently available, from scopolamine to Quaaludes, have a common drawback in that they tend to interfere with normal REM sleep patterns or to abolish them outright, possibly causing subtle emotional side effects.

Most medical authorities, and virtually all law-enforceinent agencies, have unquestioningly accepted as truth the idea that cocaine ingestion can incite toxic psychosis in human beings. Now researchers working with human volunteers at the University of California at Los Angeles have demonstrated persuasively, by intentionally inducing sensory aberrations with coke, that the drug does no such thing.

CLOVIS, NEW MEXICO—District Attorney Bill Bonem distinguished himself last fall by arranging the busts of over 65 local people for an alleged "marijuana smuggling conspiracy" that was actually set up by a Louisiana undercover agent. With money from the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration in Washington, Bonem hired Robert Kelley, a “private investigator” from Patterson, Louisiana, to work with an undercover state cop named Jerry Noedel.

The following editorial was printed in Bogota's major daily newspaper, El Tiempo, on February 12, 1979. The publication of the column, which urges the Colombian government not only to legalize marijuana but to support pot legalization efforts in the United States, is a decidedly radical breakthrough.

Heads and neopeaceniks of every stripe are plotting, even as you read this, to descend on towns across the U.S. and raise hell for an end to racism around the world. Under the auspices of Rock against Racism (RAR), the English-spawned movement of grass-roots youth against reactionary excrescences like the neo-Nazi British National Front, American Yippie cells from coast to coast are gearing up for the heaviest hip-versus-creep confrontation of the waning decade.

Customs coppers at Miami International Airport spent a day watching a certain suitcase that had arrived from what they call a "suspect” country—Colombia, Venezuela, Bolivia or Peru—"which bore an obviously false address." While the case sat in the sequestered Customs warehouse, an airline employee kept surreptitiously pushing it toward the warehouse door at odd intervals.

Rosemary Clooney, whose corn-fed, freckle-faced wholesomeness contributed so much to pop culture in the `50s—remember "Come Onna My House"?—had a dope encounter of the worst kind in the '60s, she now confesses. It seems that in 1968, when she was due for a global singing tour that would take her from Reno to Bangkok, Rosemary's 25-year-old boyfriend abruptly refused to go along.

Wavy Gravy (born Hugh Romney) is one of the key figures in the evolution of the contemporary culture of getting high and getting together. He and his traveling commune, the Hog Farm, are perhaps best known to masses of Americans for their service at the “bad-trip freak-out tent” that was captured in the movie Woodstock.

So back then it was with glee that I greeted the ten grams of black seeds pasted to a letter from my friend the chemistry student. I soaked them overnight in a jar of water, and the next evening before heading for a movie I drank the liquid.

Should we be concerned with marihuana? I think we should. I think there is a myth that marihuana is harmless. I think there is a myth that marihuana is like smoking a cigarette or like drinking alcohol. There are some similarities, but very few, and many very important differences.

Between the Americas and the Far East there has always been the Middle East—no less exotic than the Far East, but closer and more barren, windswept and sandy. Drugs might have come from the Far East, but they invariably passed through the Middle East, through the exotic caravans of the world’s most alchemically interesting trade routes.

In a market that annually processes 5,000-plus tons of marijuana and 33 tons of cocaine; wholesale distributors and retail dealers alike depend upon the accuracy of the indispensable scale for their daily bread. The heavy burden attending these dedicated individuals can be lightened somewhat by an up-to-date survey of the wide variety of weighing devices now available and a look at some of the convenient accessories designed to "keep the customer satisfied."

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA—A sharp drop in the local mortality rate occurred during five weeks in 1976—the five weeks in which Los Angeles doctors went out on strike. Dr. Milton I. Roemer, comparing the statistical death rate for those five weeks of 1976 with the same period in the years 1971-75, determined that the usual weekly death rate at that time of year in L.A. is 19.8 deaths per 100,000 people; and during the doctors’ strike, the rate slipped to only 16.2 per 100,000.

FORT KNOX, KENTUCKY—The Treasury Department printed up 400 million two-dollar bifis back in 1976, but not very many people ever see one these days. Treasury Secretary William Simon (formerly Nixon's much-touted "energy czar") dreamed up the two-dollar bill and ordered the Federal Bureau of Printing and Engraving to put out enough to hopefully replace half the one-dollar green-backs then in circulation; by Simon's reasoning, this would save some $7 million in government printing fees.

Tuberculosis is epidemic in countless American prisons, striking inmates at a rate six times higher than in the population at large. After finding ten cases of TB in a 1,500-population jail in Little Rock, Arkansas—which more than qualifies as an epidemic—Dr. William Stead of the Arkansas Health Department says he "had to resort to higher authorities in the state government" to get anything done about it.

There’s nothing like the excitement of live reggae. Spliffs light up in the darkness like fireflies, dreadlocks flagellate the air in time to the torrid beat, and the baldheads demonstrate how little rhythmic ability is encoded in their genes.

Craig Silver
After the miscarriage of his prime-time TV show, a coronary, and getting arrested for trying to murder his wife’s car, comic Richard Pryor seemed to be at a down-tempo stage of his career. But as his new album, Wanted: Richard Pryor (Warner Bros. BSK-3364), amply shows, you can’t keep an uppity black quip slinger from Peoria down long.

Elvis Costello: Soldier of Misfortune
[no value]

Harry Wasserman
Elvis Costello is pursuing Bob Dylan’s career in reverse: each album he records is more political, more lyrically dense and less melodious than the previous one. The reason, of course, is that the '70s are not the '60s—Dylan made his mark as the weather vane of a radical era, while Costello had to establish his success in a time of empty-headed nihilism.

Don't let the band's name put you off-these guys would never show up with a search warrant and bust you for possession. The Police are really a fun, invenfive, playful, sometimes nice, sometimes nasty, socially conscious punk-reggae combo.

There are those who heard Barry Miles’s music many years ago who would say that he is one of the basic founders of today’s so-called fusion music, but that’s just a lot of people talking. A former child prodigy, Barry had his musicians’-union cabaret card before he started to shave.

Steve Ellman
In the past, Daryl Hall and John Oates have all too often been dropped in a slot tagged “white Philly soul” and written off as musical lightweights. As their new album, Along the Red Ledge (RCA AFLI-2804), illustrates, Hall and Oates have too much creative ambition and restless intelligence to settle into any easily labeled method bag.

Smack is Yugoslavia’s most popular rock 'n' roll group. Their third album, Black Lady (Fantasy F9559J, had already gone gold on the shores of the Adriatic by the time it reached the States. Smack, which in their native tongue means destruction, adheres to a conventional rock 'n' roll format—guitar, bass, drums and keyboards.

Shrapnel Scars
$6.95
Attention all acidhead grunts, 'Nam vets and all you former F-14 fly-boys who ever smoked Thai smack while, peppering the Vietnamese landscape with tracer fire. Here's the very latest in armed-forces chic. Three-year vet Bruce Brown has designed the Southeast Asia War Games T-shirt, a colorful addition to your wardrobe and an immediate conversation starter for your Thursday-night VFW meetings. "Nam was a crazy place," says Brown. "The whole idea for the shirts started as a pun for my pals. I placed a few ads in the navy and army papers, and the response was tremendous. When Washington got wind, they had the Pentagon pull all of my ads and forbid me to advertise in any of the armed-forces publications." So Brown went public on the second printing of the shirts, designing one for "taxpayers" and one for "participants." The all-cotton Ts are multicolored, with the second-place-winner emblem emblazoned on a map of Vietnam. They sell for $6.95 and are available by mail from: The Watash, P.O. Box 869, Benita, Ca. 92002.

Ganga Groove
$19.95
What's that you say, dread? You havin' trouble separating the seeds and stems out of that new shipment of ganga? Tired of rolling your spliffs on an old shoebox or last year's Bob Marley album? Get hep, cat. Pick up one of these nifty Touchabowls. They're handcrafted deep in the Philippine jungles out of laminated layers of acacia, citrus and other hardwoods set in a zebra-stripe pattern, with a wide groove cut around the perimeter. A few shakes, a quick flick of the wrist, and seeds and stems are trapped in the groove, leaving your favorite blend free of debris and ready for the big roll. The eight-inch and ten-inch bowls cost $19.95 and $29.95 respectively. Available at your local head shop or from Tony Mack Enterprises, 531 Esplanade, Suite 312, Redondo Beach, Ca. 90277.

Scrimshaw Stash
$130
For centuries the art of scrimshaw has been practiced by the most meticulous of artisans. Now this ancient craft of carving delicate designs into ivory has been brought up to date in a stunning series of vials and piliboxes created by award-winning graphic artist Nancy Lee (C/O Artwork Space, 5 East 17th Street, New York, N.Y. 10022). These stashes come adorned with finely etched portraits of celebrities such as Mick Jagger, Marilyn Monroe and Betty Grable, Japanese geisha girls and samurais, and erotic embraces of every conceivable coupling of the sexes. Lee can even create a custom-made portrait from a photo to set your very own shining face into dramatic relief. Vials start at $130 and at three inches long can hold up to 1.5 grams of your favorite nose candy; the silver-dollar-sized pillboxes (priced at $200 and up) are just right for a day's supply of Valium.

Flipped-Top Box
$1

A great novelty gift or practical-joke item, the sturdy cardboard box holds a dealer's dozen (13) joints in a safe, secure case that may be the shape of things to come. Price: $1 each from the manufacturer at 420 Shore Road, Long Beach, N.Y. 11561.

Helen Lawrenson knows (or knew) of whom she writes: her recollections in "Getting Stoned in the Haut Monde" are drawn from an illustrious journalistic career spanning 50 years. Beginning as a reporter/writer in Syracuse, New York, Lawrenson joined the Condé Nast group in 1932 and became managing editor of Vanity Fair two years later.
