Los Angeles, CA
It's Thursday and time for a new episode of Dope Stories.
Introducing episode five... The Oxy Years.
We launched Dope Stories three weeks ago and I'm still amazed we were able to pull it off. The first four shows were a mixture of psychedelic freakouts, heroin, crack cocaine, and medicinal marijuana. The main topic of this week's show was "getting to know Pauly" as Shane put it, with prescription opiates as the center of the drug discussion.
Last week Shane really put himself out there explaining his experiences with cocaine. Truly a courageous feat, considering the sensitivity of the topic. I was inspired to open up a little more about the ups and downs of my addiction issues, specifically the last three years. I have written sporadically about my battle with prescription painkillers, but I tried to answer some of Shane's questions about how I ended up hooked on Oxy after a car accident in Vegas a couple of summers ago.
Here's the "setlist" for episode 005...
