The Dope Tapes

This collection was recorded by Michael Aldrich from Bay Area television stations between the years of 1986 and 2006.  A fascinating "sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll" compilation, its major focus on drug-related news stories of the time is rounded out by segments on these other topics of interest to the curator. These videos were digitized from VHS tapes in 2014.

First hour, panel of famous people jabbering about what they’d do if their kid smokes a joint. 2 nd Hour, police, law and order idiots want more crime, more war, more money. 3 rd Hour, vigilantes and legalization as “extremes”. Beatles Sgt. Pepper. 4 th hour, military interdiction, kidnap dealers Noriega, any means necessary to stop kids from liking pot. Total idiocy as policy. See scans of liner notes for detailed content.
