    Steppenwolf popularised it - but Hoyt Acton wrote it.

    (And “Snowblind Friend”. And “Greenback Dollar”. And his mother wrote “Heartbroke Hotel”…)

    This strip strongly reminds me of the Star Trek: Next Generation episode “Encounter at Farpoint” where it portrayed early 21st soldiers as being controlled by drugs.

    Eerie.

    I think you meant Hoyt Axton.

    It seems soldiers have a drug for every occasion. Are they better for it? BTW Thanks Outworld. I was going to mention that too.

    A psychoactive, migraine medicine, an opiate, and two sedatives. Army strong!

    Worried about Ray…What’s the difference between what he’s doing now and being a soldier in Miami for the Cartel? Thin line…

    Vets back from Nam hooked on smack was so messy. This new generation of properly cultivated and supplied addicts is much better for business.

    Just proving the point that all the meds in the world still are not correcting the problem.

    Ah, the good old Navy Corpsman, where a weary Marine went for pharmaceutical comfort.

    2 Things - 1: I know NO Soldiers in my unit nor any other who run around drugged up on anything. In fact when one of our Soldiers arrived for BA one medication, he was REQUIRED to provide documentation for his prescription and the reason for it and to keep that on his person at all time. He was NOT allowed to do ANYTHING other than paperwork-level tasks while on his medication.

    2: Let’s not forget the rest of that song - “If I were the President of these United States, I’d declare total war on the Pusher Man.” Be careful what you wish for…
