Coming of age in the drug culture of the 1960s and '70s led many young people to “turn on, tune in, and drop out”-experimenting with every available drug, chasing that ultimate high while looking for someone with whom they could share it. Thinking themselves invincible, they did not realize that they were flirting with danger-although they knew enough to stay below the radar of law enforcement while indulging in the pleasures offered in The Age of Aquarius. One such naive young man slides into the drug underworld with barely a ripple after a life-altering trip as a student to Spain and four years spent in Afghanistan. There, he realizes for the first time that drugs, like any other business, bring money and power-especially the selling of Afghan hashish. While selling tons of hashish to his friends in America, along the way he began experimenting with opium…and then pharmaceutical morphine. After many years, his tolerance to this drug became immense. Each injection could have killed a horse, but Bobby Legend barely felt the high, not as he had when he first began experimenting with the drug. And once his kingdom fell, he brought his overpowering addiction to America, where his relative peace was shattered by unexpected world events.
