He like trannies though so he must've been doing wild stuff. He definitely isn't your average man in the 80's.

Yea it was everywhere back then. It kind of had a rebirth in popularity in the 70s, and then crack became an epidemic in the mid-late 80s. That heavy era with Tubbs, Dokes, Witherspoon, Thomas and others really could have been a bit of a golden era for heavys without it. Instead it became the "lost era".

The lost era, yes I have heard of that terminology being used to describe the heavyweights of that decade 'They where all very talented heavyweights' I think it was Tony Tubb's who really pushed Riddick Bowe back in the 90's 'I have only seen that fight once many years ago, but from my memory Tubb's was putting it on Riddick Bowe'.

Opiates have the highest % of relapse and from what I have seen is the hardest to give up. That being said your right imo because I've seen many guys that used crank or meth and they are permanently tweaked. Almost like a "dry drunk", but worse.

Yea he gave a pre title Bowe he ll. All those guys were great amateur's with a lot of talent. Tubbs even won the 1st rd with Tyson and nobody won the 1st rd with Mike back then. I wonder sometimes how that era would have turned out if not for the coke. Im not sure who would have separated themselves from the rest. Maybe Spoon or Thomas, but IDK Tubbs had MAYBE the most talent imo.

- -Tubbs was very good and prob clean.

DKing guided most them boys into it with the use of hookers in order to keep them rotating around fighting each other for peanuts while he and Carl skimmed their purses.

When's the last time anyone heard of Carl?

Prob lives on his own island he bought when Brando died.

Really , the people and their media are responsible for allowing the greatest human, drug, and sex trafficking in the short history of the Americas.

The governments are elected by them and in the US seem to have a bipolar disorder.

We are in the third millennium of 5000 yrs of recorded history and these smuggling cartels control much of Mexico and the Middle East.

Prohibition has never worked and only exacerbated the problem.

That last sentence is unfortunately true. If we learned ANYTHING from Prohibition during the 30s its that you cant stop what the people want. All it has done is what it did in the 30s and that's create a VERY powerful underworld. Funny in my youth when I did dabble in stuff I NEVER thought it should be legal, but since then I have changed my mind. It might create a few more addicts, but it would stop ALOT of the innocent victims. Like people being robbed or killed to get the money it costs. One other thing comes to mind for some reason is SEAT BELTS. When I went to Ireland more then a couple thought our laws on that were odd to say the least. They thought it was funny to police ourselves when not wearing a belt has NO VICTIMS except yourself. Now im not saying wearing seat belt is not a good idea(I do myself now), but the only life it may save is your own.Not wearing one has NO other victims.
