Before The D.E.A.
This news photograph is entitled, “Government agent mixing and weighing heroin and morphine.” September 20, 1938.
All they needed was some cocaine for a giant speedball.
Why the government needed an agent to mix these massive quantities of drugs I do not know. A party for J. Edgar Hoover perhaps?
Forget the mask. Look at his eye. Tell me the agent is not getting some sort of contact high.
