Makes me wonder what I missed by not taking drugs in my youth. Hysterical and sobering at the same time.
You're better off not knowing. You'd be pissed off at yourself for spending all that money. You'd have made friends with people that maybe you shouldn't have, and now try to avoid. Yeah, sometimes it was fun, but you learn a nasty lesson when one of your " friends " dies in front of you. No man, don't even wonder.
Run down ghost town, no chance for love. No sign of life - just wild dogs howlin' in the night........
Agreed. I'm one of the very few who managed to grow up during the '60's & '70's & not even try drugs. It seemed stupid to me. I like to be in control of myself at all times. Never wanted to be in a situation where I couldn't get myself home at night. One holiday recently, my brother & I were sitting around ticking off the names of guys we grew up with who died young. It was shocking how long the list was. Glad we weren't among them.
That being said, the '60's drug culture was easy to predict, in retrospect, if one studies the '50's. 1950-59 was the decade when school children practiced hiding under their desks & covering their heads for when the Communists arrived & when every world problem was blamed on things that kids liked (read: rock-n-roll & comic books). Kids were told that drugs were bad for them, but by the time '60's arrived, it had reached the point where the kids simply didn't believe anything they were told by adults, & had to find out stuff for themselves, including about drugs. I could say more but I'd start to cross the line into political discussion, so I'll end here.
