@izzythepush,
I had understood that to be the case,
until thay showed that guy on 60 Minutes
(and used his name) who described events as I indicated.
( Now, I 'm trying to remember if this came from a printed
news story somewhere; its vague in my memory; years ago.)
I have no expertise in this; I cannot argue the point,
for lack of information, beyond what I 've said.
I was somewhat surprized to hear that addiction wore off,
but what do I know about such things?????

It is my business only in the sense that government
produces a higher rate of violent crime in America by
creating desperation in addicts because of the prohibition.
That is an artificial price support, requiring violent crime
to enable the addicts to purchase the contraband drugs.
That, together with attempts to disarm future victims
produces more violent crime.

@OmSigDAVID,
Maybe it was someone with a unique body chemistry, but it's far from common.

U may well be right
that it is uncommon. I don t know what to believe.
Fortunately, heroin addiction is not part of my world.
I don 't know anyone who is a heroin addict.

@OmSigDAVID,
If they were a wealthy heroin addict you may not know. In Ben Elton's Stark one of the conspirators is a very wealthy heroin addict.

@izzythepush,
I remember that. Because he could afford pure there was no chance of overdose.

This Burroughs rant has long stuck in my mind

@hingehead,
Burroughs went so far along the junk trail he saw something else entirely. He is by far my favourite writer. His voice is another depth.

Someone once told me that because addiction and withdrawal causes rapid cell change from junk dependent to non junk dependent cells, it can be used to extend life. That a group of scientists took a really low form of life, a worm or something, gave it a heroin habit, then made it withdraw and then reintroduce the habit and so on. Apparently they extended its life by a factor of ten, although it wouldn't have been much of a life.

This is a conversation in a pub, and could be total bollocks, but it sounds like it should be right.

@OmSigDAVID,
I think you'd really like the clip posted by Hinghead. I think you might agree with everything Burroughs says. Here's a picture of him that should make you a bit more receptive to his ideas.

That 's true; if thay are wealthy,
then I don t know who thay are,
nor how many of them thay be; no visible track marks on any of their arms.
I have not checked for marks under any of their tongues.
I 'm not sure what Emily Post or Dorothy Manners wud say about doing that.

@OmSigDAVID,
Indeed. Kinda puts one in mind of this old ballad.

********************************************************************

ONE-BALL RILEY
-Traditional Irish

As I was sittin by the fire
talking to O'Riley's daughter
suddenly a thought came into my head:
I'd like to shag O'Riley's daughter

(Chorus): Giddy aye ay, giddy aye ay,
giddy aye ay for the one-ball Riley
Giddy aye ay: (three claps or stomps)
try it on yer own big drum!

Riley played on the big bass drum;
Riley had a mind for murder and slaughter
Riley had a bright red glitterin eye
and he kept that eye on his lovely daughter

Got me a bottle and a condom too,
got me hands on Riley's daughter
settled me down for a good old time
doin things we shouldn't oughter

Suddenly a footstep on the stair
who should it be but Riley out for slaughter
with two pistols in his hands
lookin for the man that shagged his daughter

Grabbed Old Riley by the ball,
rammed his head in a pail of water
shoved them pistols up his ass
a damn sight quicker than I shagged his daughter!

As I go walkin' down the street
People shout from every corner
There's the randy sonofabitch
That finally shagged Old Riley's daughter!

@hawkeye10,
Amen. I knew that little boy personally. They say even the bartenders knew what she has been doing. The justice system needs to step up and look into things deeper. Especially since this lady's record goes back to 1994. Hello she shouldn't have any kids but no one would of known cause she was allowed her daughter.
step up justice system
