Every day, several phone calls and letters come in to HIGH TIMES about the same unsavory subject: urine-testing. As our article in this issue shows ("Big Brother in the Bathroom," by Joanne Gampel, page 56), this misguided process is becoming the rule rather than the exception in every area of American life, as if it were some kind of moral test for every "true" American.

Recently I saw a commercial on TV that was presented by the Elks Club. This really pissed me off because they said that if you smoke pot for one year, you get as much lung damage as you would in twenty years of smoking cigarettes. Is this true? If it is, then you have been holding out on us.

IT'S CHEAPER BY BUS and even by plane, but the best way to get to D.C. is to go by train; what dominates the skyline as you drive away from Union Station— most people drive in this town—is what Washington's all about. It's Capitol Hill, the Roman senate look: the Establishment made manifest.

HIYA KIDS. HERE I am again, the monthly nag, the pain in the koolo, trying once more to enlighten you to some horrifying fact or drug-or health-related truth. This month I have some more grisly news. This time it's about animals, not humans, but there's a link here that pertains to human health.

“Although the [systemic] toxicity of MPP+ has not been extensively studied, a related compound, paraquat, has received wide attention for its use as a herbicide to control the illicit production of marijuana,” write Drs. Irwin Kopin and Stanley Burns, of the National Institute of Mental Health, in a 1984 research paper, “Mechanisms of Neurotoxicity of MPTP.”

An Analysis of Marijuana Policy, a 1981 National Academy Press Publication, is recommended for changing the opinion of even the staunchest antimarijuana crusader. Under the auspices of the National Research Council, committee members from the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineers and the Institute of Medicine compiled and reviewed all past research and reports dealing with marijuana.

AS MORE AND MORE ENTRIES IN THE Trans-High Market Quotations have come to deal with cocaine and MDMA and various popular types of speed and such, I’ve been feeling more and more inclined toward issuing some kind of personal disclaimer. It should probably be reiterated every so often, if not with every issue, that our well-known page of current illegal-drug prices is not a menu of recommendations but a report on the price and quality of what we know is currently available.

THROUGHOUT HISTORY, drugs and sex have been two of humanity’s three great preoccupations. It’s only natural that these two primary preoccupations would be combined in the folklore of pharmacology. Virtually every culture has its list of substances that are credited with the ability to arouse and/or increase sexual desire.

The audience was a spectacle unto itself. Aging hippies in ragged jeans and tie-dyed shirts mixed with skinhead punks in leather and spikes and clean-cut preppies with twenty-dollar haircuts and pastel polo shirts. Urban teens, black, white and Asian, danced themselves into frenzies alongside older dashiki-clad Africans and dreadlocked Rastafarians who scrutinized the scene as they swayed to the rhythms.

Getting out of the sack at any hour before 9:30 doesn't really strike my fancy, but 2:30 A.M. is absolutely ridiculous. But, I had an assignment from HIGH TIMES, SO felt duty-bound to get out of my warm, cozy bed when Allan knocked on my door. I could see the heavens were studded with stars as I pulled on my green T-shirt, jeans, shoes and my prized Harford County Grain and Feed hat.

John Howell
Tom Jenkin' paintings of Californian civilization at moments of apocalyptic convulsion have all the comic/grisly impact of a high-speed freeway smash-up in the bright light of midafternoon. His vision are ominous views of an urban landscape riddled with cultural crimes against nature: flaming freeways, oil spills, overbuilt housing developments, leaking nuclear reactors, monstrous architecture—all are examples of a complex, sophisticated technology pushed beyond the limits of rational control.

THOMAS J. HO
Congress enacted the Military Service Registration Act in 1980—partly as a reaction to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan—following an absence of the draft registration for almost eight years. The 1980 draft registration law requires that every U.S. male citizen and resident alien between the ages of 18 and 26 must register for the draft.

EVEN EXPERIENCED GARDENERS should review their practices against current standards. Too often, a cultivator who has had successful experiences using one method is afraid to try more advanced techniques. If your garden is not up to date, it is not as efficient as it could be and you are losing valuable crops.

Little Things Mean a Lot
Good dope lawyers know that a small detail can make a BIG difference.

CASES THAT CAN BE WON BY UNCOVERING gross illegality, the blatant smear, or obvious perjury are all too rare. It is up to the desperate attorney, seeking to unearth the obvious injustices being done to his politically, morally, and ethically righteous client to grind through the meager resources available to him in the statutes, cases and police reports to find a way to exonerate his client.

LIGHT RUNNER
One of the keys to a successful indoor growing system is the lighting setup. It's important that all plants receive an equal amount of light to ensure equal growth. And to keep electricity costs down, it's important to get maximum light from a minimum amount of fixtures. SALEM HALIDE & GARDENING SUPPLY offers a brand-new product that will maximize your lighting system and minimize your electricity bills. The LIGHT RUNNER moves your lights at just the right speed so that your plants are given just the right amount of light to ensure that all plants grow to the same height. It allows one light to do the job of two and and eliminates hot spots and shade. Salem Halide and Gardening Supply also offers the computerized Growmatic hydroponic system and the Growplus nutrients geared to complement that system. Contact Salem at 245 Chemeketa St., Salem, OR 97301, or call 'em at (503) 362-5880.

Some people are violent and criminal, others just make criminal noise. —Lydia Lunch As LOUD AS ANYTHING you've ever heard—CRASH! SLAM! Violent, aggressive, without pitch or resonance— SMASH! SCREECH! Metal on metal, steel on steel. The sound of God's fingernails scraping against a blackboard, or a freight train derailing between your temples.

1. Antietam, Antietam (Homestead). Raving, wild, loose, psychotic folk-punk, like the Velvet Underground running headlong from its own sonic barrage. 2. Mofungo, Frederick Douglass (Coyote). Sharp, listenable experimental rock, with shades of Minute-men deconstructivism and a garage Farfisa.

PENELOPE SPHEERIS, THE WOMAN who created slam-dance cinema, is at it again. Her first two movies captured the grittiest elements of L.A.'s spikey-haired punk scene, both as documentary (1981's The Decline Of Western Civilization) and fiction (1984's Suburbia).

It's midway into the fall of '85, and already we're starting to hold our breath for the coolest film we've heard about in ages. Problem is, we're gonna turn a million shades of blue from this breath-holdin' business, 'cause the film in question is not due for release till next spring.

Speaking of cool, the man who was the veritable celluloid definition of the word is now available on vidtape, and, again, the price is right. James Dean, who showed kids in the '50s how not to be nerds, and embodied the "live fast, die young, and leave a beautiful corpse" credo, made only three films before he totaled his Porsche and himself along with it.

YEARS HAVE PASSED SINCE I FIRST began working here within these astrally cobwebbed corridors of HIGH TIMES. I've seen a lot of trips go down and a host of vagrant souls pass through. But one of the constants I've clung to in the onrush of variables, like a palm tree in a hurricane, has been a certain Xerox-copy of a letter to the editor that was thumbtacked to one of the bulletin boards when I first arrived here and is on my wall even now.
