    Maybe you’ve been wondering why I haven’t updated this site in some time. Well, here’s why..

For the last handful of years, alongside my co-author, Stretch Armstrong, we’ve amassed the most complete collection of flyer art and created this book as a visual history of the halcyon. Now as far as the cocaine thing, Bergreen got a doctor friend by the name of Jack Shapiro to agree with him at about the time of his book release in saying that Capone's hole in his septum was the cause of Al being a big time cocaine abuser. Keep in mind that Shapiro was a "Medical consultant" for Bergreen's book. (Probably paid).

From , Williams spent several hours a week running with a band of eight teen-age cocaine dealers, most Domincan. Here, drawing on more than hours of fieldwork and ""six thick notebooks,"" he writes about them.

    Actor Michael Caine saying his name in his own voice. Anyone with a British accent saying Michael Caine's name. Cocaine has a checkered past—but it wasn’t always that way. In Cocain: History and Culture, author Armand Limnander explores this mysterious drug. The book traces cocaine back to its origins, not in the parties and discos of the s, but thousands of years before that when the unprocessed coca leaf was an integral part of [ ].

"My Cocaine Museum is intended as a counter-enchantment, to free the reader, if not all Colombia, from the magic of two commodities that have had a profound and malign effect on the nation's history. It's a daring immersion in a Colombian mode of thought."—Paul LaFarge, Voice Literary Supplement.

My Cocaine Museum tells the story that the Gold Museum hides, about the difficulty of life in the place gold (and now cocaine) comes from, a swamp where it rains three feet a month and the heat never goes away.
