The Story of a Serial Drug User, In His Own Words

I have very little to say about today's feature. I think it speaks for itself. I will say that it's one of the most startling and amazing tapes I've come across, and that I found it riveting.

For those who might wonder, I have no idea who the main speaker is, who is interviewing him, for what purpose, or when this may have been recorded. My guess on the latter is the late 1960's or early 1970's, but there is nothing of any sort written on the box or the tape reel.

With that said, I present to you a recording of a man with extensive experience in the world of illegal drugs, being interviewed about his history and his thoughts.

  1. This is...pretty chilling, to be honest. This guy clearly had (I am ASSUMING he's dead) no boundaries. Which makes sense growing up without a dad.

  2. Have to admit, I can somewhat relate to this fellow's journey in la-la-lu-lu land. I began smoking pot at 13, & by 28, was snorting coke. I did, then cease all such activity, thank God & never went back. I've seen a lot of folks stop or either die from such abuse. However, something in his quick responses to the questions shot at him seem almost scripted. hard to say, exactly, but he doesn't speak like an unschooled nincompoop. Anyway, he mentions records, several times. And recording artists, like Beatles, Elvis & the Mothers Of Invention. So, I would place the time at approximately 1969. He doesn't relate much regret for his reliance on drugs, possibly indicating that he is not really addicted, or extreme denial. He sounds truthful, in a way, yet somehow somethings seems off, especially for one who claims to use heroin. Maybe the two interviewers are paying him quite a hefty sum for his opening up concerning his drug history, and he really straightened up for this half hour. I just don't know...
