Editor: Okay, level with me. Who is snooping on who? You guys come out with a "Military/Drug War" article the exact same month that our own USAF features theirs. Now, if you will excuse me, I'd like to draw a few comparisons here. Right off the bat, the USAF article has color pics.

As the Ides of March draw near, the new, improved HIGH TIMES brings you more exciting, provocative reading to shake off the ominous chill of Reagan's idea of America. Our cover story is HIGH TIMES' response to the National Institute on Drug Abuse's cocaine report.

It's no secret that pro athletes are world-class consumers of controlled substances. The number of basketball, baseball, football and hockey players publicly exposed for doing drugs in the past few years is mind-boggling, especially in light of the formerly superstraight image of athletes.

Writer/filmmaker/gossipmonger Kenneth Anger seems to be bucking to get featured in one of his own books. Anger, whose ultra-bitchy Hollywood Babylon II is a wonderfully sleazy sequel to his first book of Tinseltown super-scandals, created a little scandal of his own while plugging the book.

In Reagan-era Amerika, the ultimate accolade is to call something "All-American." So guess what Reagan's flunkies are calling cocaine. Yup, James D. Harmon Jr., head of Ronzo's Commission on Organized Crime, opened Washington hearings on coke by proclaiming, "Cocaine is now the All-American drug."

In the heart of New York City's East Village, a small storefront sits sequestered between bodegas and junk shops. Upon opening the door, a visitor meets oblique, light-lime colored walls, framed by pink borders with lopsided corners. A spray-painted pink chandelier droops from the ceiling and the glass-top jewelry counter slants to the floor.

Back in the early 1500s a discovery was made that changed the way people look at natural preventative medicine. The first chemists, the alchemists, introduced chemical cures for disease. Previously, all medical problems were handled by herbal means, the "vital force" approach.

For years now, the most popular historic site invariably sought out by visitors to Minneapolis has been the mythical Mary Tyler Moore house. Equally invariable is the wide-eyed disappointment in discovering that Mary doesn't live here anymore, never did and, most likely, never will.

MYSTERY "DRUGS SYNDROME" BLAMED FOR DEATHS BY COPS
Miami: Cocaine Death Syndrome
Los Angeles: PCP Death Syndrome
[no value]
[no value]
Mark Swain
POLICE AUTHORITIES around the country are increasingly tending to cite mysterious, medically-unaccountable "drug reactions" as the prime culprits in deaths and injuries sustained by people who fall into police custody. Here in Miami, a hitherto-unknown complication of classical cocaine psychosis has been tentatively invoked by the Dade County Medical Examiner's office to account for a string of mysterious deaths over the last two years—deaths which may or may not also have involved some measure of police restraint.

ONCE HE GETS YOU TO THE police station, the policeman will ask you to walk in a straight line, turn sharply on one foot, and walk back. Then he’ll have you play for a while on a gizmo similar to Atari’s “Post Position” buzz game. Finally he’ll sit you next to a machine about the size of a small footlocker, with a TV console in it, and place on your head a snug plastic headband, with three wires leading from it into the device.

VENTURA COUNTY COROners officially listed a baggie full of marijuana as the deadly agent that killed 22-year-old John Hicks while he was in police detention on the Kanan Road in Ventura last autumn. Hicks, stopped by three Ventura sheriff's deputies for speeding, evidently tried to hide a “Ziploc” plastic bag, with less than an ounce of grass inside it, in his mouth.

THE EXILED LEADERS OF the three main dope-traficking syndicates of Colombia have emotionally petitioned to the Bogotá government to be allowed to return to “the homeland we want for our children, and the homeland we deeply love.” In return for permission to resettle here in their beloved homeland, the homesick narcotraficantes solemnly promise to abandon the dope trade forever, and confidently predict that the global narcotics industry will comprehensively collapse, forever, in consequence.

A Reuter subsidiary, Checkpoint Laboratories, announced definitely on four separate occasions in 1984 that they were shortly about to merchandise a mail-order pot piss test, U-Care, to schools nationwide, in conjunction with Nancy Reagan’s famous “Chemical People” antidope organization.

"CLOAK-AND-DAGGER" DICKS WIND UP CLIMBING THE WALL

A POLICEMAN’S LOT IS NOT A HAPPY ONE, but an undercover policeman can wind up psychotically depressed and deranged, psychologists warn. After completing a five-year study of 270 randomly-selected undercover police agents in the United States and Canada, psychologists at the University of Ottawa discovered (among many other fascinating things) exactly why a lot of undercover cops wind up lying under oath in court for no good rational reason, and why a lot of undercover narcs typically wind up protecting certain of their targeted investigation suspects, and helping them with dope deals.

With the headline “New Wilderness Peril: Growers of Marijuana,” (and on a followup op-ed page, “The Myth of the Peaceful Marijuana Grower”), the New York Times has lately given a big boost to the government’s longtime effort to associate the marijuana-growing subculture with the world of dog-eat-dog lawlessness and organized crime.

Bob Ireland
HORMONES ARE ORGANIC MOLECULES produced by plants and transported to its site of action where, in very small amounts, they control, stimulate, inhibit or alter one another and plants’ life processes. The term plant growth regulator can be used to describe a hormone but the term also encompasses the hundreds of synthetic organic compounds in use today which can exert profound regulatory effects on growth.

Ingestion of seeds can produce nausea and vomiting, stomach cramps and general physical discomfort. Seeds can be poisonous at high dosages. Can cause weakness and lassitude. Other dangers include those attributed to psychedelics as a group, such as disorientation, bad trips, possibility of psychotic episodes in those prone to them, and possible flashback experiences.

Does the artist come out as a hero? Hardly. Intellectuals who define words can change images for a time, but not for long. Heroism belongs to people who have struggled, without regard to their own lives, for the survival of others, and their effort has been recognized as that kind of struggle for that kind of end.

HIGH TECH
BIG, BAAAAAD BOOMBOX
SOLVING THE COMPUTER MYSTERY
STARMAKING SYSTEM
[no value]
YAMAHA PC-8
Boomboxes used to be pretty simple: a cassette deck, a couple of tinny speakers and maybe an AM-FM receiver. Nowadays, the boombox is high tech to the max, with more features, dials and sophisticated circuitry than the average space shuttle. Take the YAMAHA PC-8, a portable component stereo system that would have been undreamed-of just a few years ago. The PC-8 has a cassette deck with auto reverse for recording and playback, an FM receiver with FM muting, Dolby B/C noise reduction, automatic tape selector, fulllogic controls, a five-band graphic equalizer, two-way bass reflex speaker system, a newly developed ceramic tweeter, wood speaker cabinets, music search, phono input terminals, five-segment LED power/record level meter and two headphone jacks. What more could you ask for, aside from a built-in toaster?!

THE BASIC EXPLORER
$11.95
Even with the high tech era running full-throttle, computers remain a mystery to many of us. Now comes a book that can help solve the mystery of at least one home computer. THE BASIC EXPLORER (Osborne/McGraw-Hill, $11.95) is a guidebook for the Commodore 64 computer. What makes this book fun is that it treats the operation of the Commodore 64 like a real mystery. Three computer "explorers" lead the reader into a world of danger and intrigue, a world in which the reader's growing programming skills become the key to the book's mystery. By the end of The Basic Explorer, the reader will not only know how to program the Commodore 64, he'll also have had the fun of reading an exciting mystery novel. That's a combination that should make the Commodore 64 accessible even to the most die-hard high tech paranoids among us.

TECHNICS RS-1520
So you wanna be a rock 'n' roll star? Well, the first thing you gotta do is put your tunes on tape. And, if you want to do it like the pros, you better get yourself a professional recording system. If you've got the bucks to go for the best, try the TECHNICS RS-1520, a two-track reel-to-reel system that can only be described as state-of-the-art. The RS-1520 uses a highly advanced tape transport system called the "Isolated Loop." Combine that with a three-motor direct drive system, utilizing quartz phase-locked control for the capstan motor, tape tension control for the reel motors, a full IC logic control system and feathertouch solenoid switches, and you have a unit that will make your music sound fantastic. Then all you have to do is get someone at a record company to listen to it...

Robert Fogelnest
Although every person accused of a crime in the U.S. is entitled to trial by a fair and impartial jury of his or her peers, people accused of violation of the drug laws rarely experience those rights. Rather than a jury of peers, jurors are often chosen in arbitrary ways.

Nothing is more of a bummer than a lighting system that falls apart the first time you knock it around a little. That's one problem you'll never have to worry about with the new HYDROLITE SUPER halide system from APPLIED HYDROPONICS. The ballast components, all UL approved, are the finest quality. The newly designed socket housing allows the reflector height to be adjusted up or down, a real advantage in focusing the light when plants are small and in spreading it out as they get bigger. The Super system packs a full 1000 watts of sun-like light in a 125,000-lumen system that gives new meaning to the word rugged. And it comes with a two-year guarantee. If you can't check it out at one of Applied's showrooms, phone (800-634-9999, or 415-459-7898 in Cal.) or write (150 Bellam Blvd. #300, San Rafael, CA 94901) for a free catalog.

The first thing to say is that you can't destroy the earth these days with just pocket change. It was years ago that Irwin Allen, discredited genius of TV science fiction and father of such definitive video-screen classics as "Lost in Space," "Time Tunnel" and "Land of the Giants," said, "If I can't blow up the world within the first ten minutes, then the show is a flop."

• Morris Day, hilariously hip as Prince's archrival in Purple Rain, has signed a three-picture deal with 20th Century Fox. Day, who broke with the Prince camp and moved to L.A. to pursue screen stardom, obviously scored a hit with the Hollywood big boys.

Lurking amid the cheerfully druggy grown-up Beat boys-on-the lam exuberance of Howard Brookner's 1983 documentary, Burroughs, is a haunting element that lingers long after the film ends: the case-study in second-generational confusion known as William S. Burroughs, Jr. Billy was the product of a brief marriage between William Sr. and Joan Vollmer.
