The paraquat stuff happened during the Carter administration, in NORML’s early days. It pissed off NORML’s founder Keith Stroup so much that he dropped a dime on Carter’s physician and White House medical advisor, Peter Bourne, for being present while cocaine was being used at a NORML party. This led to a scandal with Bourne resigning, Carter being so embarrassed that he completely pulled back from his efforts to decriminalize, and Stroup being thrown out of NORML for being a rat. I didn’t get involved with NORML until the late 80s.
Sorry for the derailment. We will now return you to your regularly scheduled thread. Cocaine > wired > wiring diagrams!
