"In America, circa 1985, cocaine is everywhere," reads the introduction to our March cover story, "Cocaine '85: The Pleasures and Perils of the All-American Drug." Little did we know when we sat down to plan that article in December just how right we would be three months later when, the day that HIGH TIMES' March issue hit the stands, both Time and Newsweek featured cocaine on their covers.

I disagree with the article in your February issue about ZZ Top ("Ridin' High With ZZ Top"). How can you really say "after all these years, ZZ Top has become hip"? ZZ Top has always been hip! —Ridin' High Kalamazoo, Mich. ZZ Top does not have a sense of humor: they suck.

WHEN I WAS growing up, when the Seattle Totems ruled the cellar of the Pacific Coast Hockey League, when outdoorsmen shopped in hardware stores and led their sodden families deep into the woods, before Eddie Bauer's, before the KIRO Newsjet, Seattle sat obscurely in the damp north-west corner of the map, noted only for its World's Fair and the loss of the supersonic airplane contract.

OKAY. THIS IS SERIOUS. I'm mad. I'm angry. As a health advisor, I've been watching a lot of sick people and I've come to believe one thing more than any other. It's a secret that very, very few Western doctors practice or were taught in medical school.

TRANSPORT VIA THE NEW Jersey Turnpike is laughably easy—if you know what not to do. Never transport anything, not even head stash, in a vehicle with Florida tags, particularly Florida rental tags.

"J.G., Jr."
A few months ago, Newsweek proclaimed 1985 "The Year of the Yuppie." I guess that means this is my year. Newsweek defined a yuppie as a young urban professional making $40,000 a year or more. Well, I live in Manhattan, the veritable birthplace of yuppiedom, and I'm a professional advertising copywriter working for one of the world's biggest ad agencies, making more than $ 50,000 per annum.

When South Africa's Nationalist Party came to power in 1948, it wrote into law the policy of racial segregation that had operated since British colonial times. While many African states gained freedom as sovereign states in the 1960s, South Africa’s white minority has continued to exploit and oppress the black majority—even after supposed decolonialization in 1961.

Madonna looked as though she had just stepped out of the shower. Her hair was still wet as she bolted into her trailer dressing room from the car that delivered her, late, to the set. Earlier, actress Rosanna Arquette had spent several hours getting out of a cab and walking into the Magic Club, a camera and film crew recording her every move.

Dear Ed, Here's a tip for your readers. I have been cloning plants for several years. I have tried various techniques, but get close to 100 percent success when I put the cuttings in water, the same as I do with houseplants. For best results, I let the water sit for a day so the chlorine evaporates, and then I put four or five five-inch cuttings in the eight-ounce cup and place that under a fluorescent light, so that the tops of the cuttings are about four inches from the tube.

IF A WORD COULD ENCOMPASS NEW ORLEANS MUSIC AND players, it would have to be: sassy.

Last month we met the Mushroom Man [HIGH TIMES, Apr., '85]. This month we kick back with our favorite fungus grower for some closer-in discussion of the specifics of his technique. Or at least as much as he's willing to divulge. Heaven knows, the Mushroom, Man would be one of the last people we know to encourage the general cultivation of controlled substances.—Ed.

ONE GOOD THING to have come out of the wave of patriotism currently sweeping the country is a resurgence of distinctly American music. American bands are casting off the British yoke and finding their inspiration in traditional native forms.

1. Various Artists, Greatest Beats (Tommy Boy). Yeah, I know, a label sampler. But with Soulsonic Force, Jonzun Crew, Force M.D.'s and friends, possibly the coolest one in the history of the planet. Fade on this and you'll never be hip. 2. Tommy Keene, Back Again (Dolphin).

THE BLASTERS are the purest of these bands; they grew up dreaming of being Wobblies. They know the most about their source material and have the most genuine affection for their subject matter. If they keep improving at their present rate, they'll soon rule the world.

As THE 1984-85 television season draws to a close, it's obvious that network programmers haven't yet figured out what to do about the competition from VCRs and pay TV. What's harder to understand is why, as part of their defense, they've resurrected the tried (but never too true) genre of the family sitcom.

AK-30
There's only one word that does justice to Panasonic's new AK-30 PORTABLE VIDEO CAMERA —awesome. The AK-30 uses three ⅔-inch Plubicon tubes to generate a horizontal resolution of 650 lines. That means picture quality that is so sharp it's almost three-dimensional. For those of you who are into high tech video lingo, the AK-30 includes an automatic knee circuit, automatic iris with variable peak/average ratio, a color negative reverse function for film use, and digital zone registration with memory and dual automatic white balance for two color temperatures. For those who aren't hip to that jargon, suffice it to say that the Panasonic AK-30 is totally cool!

AKG K-l
What's featherweight and fits into a tiny carrying case, yet can provide enough aural power to blow your brain? It's the new AKG K-l HEADPHONES. The K-l 'phones feature a pantograph (scissors-type) headband that autoadjusts to fit any noggin, plus a four-and-a-half foot cable with mini-plug and quarter-inch phone plug adaptor. These powerful mini-headphones fold into a flat threeand-a-half inch belt-looped carrying case that makes them extra-easy to take with you wherever you go. Have headset, will travel!

CD-X1
While many high-tech items try to overwhelm you with dials, buttons, lights and gadgets, the Yamaha CD-X1 COMPACT DISC PLAYER adheres to the philosophy that simpler is better. That's a philosophy we like. The operation of the CD-XI is remarkably streamlined and simple, yet the unit provides performance that is definitely state-of-the-art. It features a horizontal slide-out disc tray that reduces wear and tear on the discs and makes loading and unloading a snap. Other features of the CD-XI are a lighted disc indicator, music search buttons that allow you to automatically jump ahead to the next cut, and memory buttons that enable you to immediately find your favorite cut. All in all, the CD-XI is high tech with a heart—and sound that'll send you soaring.

RARELY DO TODAY'S young male actors attain success on their own terms. Childhood stars are nothing new, of course, but these days the Hollywood machine plucks out its young male performers before even their personalities have developed and molds them into teen heartthrobs who mean to represent youthful rebellion.

• You never know what's going to inspire a film these days. It could be a book, a headline-making story, a magazine article (see next item), even a hit song. (Remember Harper Valley P.T.A.? The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia? Take This Job and Shove It?) Now comes a movie based on a board game.

The Mailing of America, William Severini Kowinski (New York: William Morrow & Co., 1985), 411 pages, $17.95. WHILE TRYING to explain my whereabouts recently—I was outside Philadelphia—I told a friend that I was near Valley Forge. That meant nothing to her; she didn't know anything about George Washington camping out there with his troops during the Revolutionary War.

• Ze Records has come up with the perfect answer for folks who have been complaining about how lame most rock videos are. Ze's idea? Do it yourself! Rather than create a video for ex-Velvet Undergrounder John Cale's new single "Never Give Up," Ze is sponsoring a contest to get a novice video artist to do the job.

HOW WOULD you feel if you were searched by a public official and could not do anything about it? Well, thirty girls in a Mississippi elementary school were subjected to a strip search to find out who might have left a soiled sanitary napkin on the floor of a rest room.

To celebrate the first issue of the new HIGH TIMES, our fun-loving staff threw the first annual HIGH TIMES Neo-Mardi Gras Ball at Danceteria, New York's ultimate hot spot. Some 600 HIGH TIMES revelers showed up to caper at the rowdy bash, and all had a good time fueled by a free bar, some mysterious goodies, and the exhilarating Cajun music of the Loup Gurou Zydeco Band.
