Famous and Funny Quotes about Drugs

High times fills us in on 36 Famous and Funny Quotes about Drugs……

The drug culture is full of wisdom, weirdos and literary diatribes to show us just how boring the world would be if the recreational use of mind-altering substances did not exist. Despite the nonsense upstanding society attempts to teach the flock from an early age, there is very little in the way of art, music or literature that could be enjoyed by the masses today had it not been for someone getting really high on drugs. It is worth mentioning, however, that there could be no dynamic of good and evil without the legion of opposing forces filling the minds of the American populous with “Say Nope to Dope” propaganda in order to keep the sheep from realizing that the grass is only greener in the United States as long as you don’t burn it!

Yet, as clever as the anti-drug regime has fought to be throughout the years, their creative forces have been no match for those geniuses who have smoked, snorted, and tripped their way over to the other side. As a celebration of this beautiful madness, we have assembled this list of 36 famous, funny, truly inspiration and asinine quotes about drugs.

And neither have I, for that matter.” – Hunter S. Thompson

“The face of “evil” is always the face of total need. A dope fiend is a man in total need of dope. Beyond a certain frequency need knows absolutely no limit or control. In the words of total need: “Wouldn’t you?” Yes you would. You would lie, cheat, inform on your friends, steal, do anything to satisfy total need. Because you would be in a state of total sickness, total possession, and not in a position to act in any other way. Dope fiends are sick people who cannot act other than they do. A rabid dog cannot choose but bite.” – William S. Burroughs

“Avoid all needle drugs – the only dope worth shooting is Richard Nixon.” — Abbie Hoffman

“If we could sniff or swallow something that would, for five or six hours each day, abolish our solitude as individuals, atone us with our fellows in a glowing exaltation of affection and make life in all its aspects seem not only worth living, but divinely beautiful and significant, and if this heavenly, world-transfiguring drug were of such a kind that we could wake up next morning with a clear head and an undamaged constitution — then, it seems to me, all our problems (and not merely the one small problem of discovering a novel pleasure) would be wholly solved and earth would become paradise.” – Aldous Huxley
