HIGH TIMES

Robert AntonWilson'sincredible
and
varied
career,
it's
hard
to
knowwhatto
expect
whenyou
meet
him.This
isa
guywho
spent
five
years
in
the
'60s
as
an
editor
of
Playboy,
then went
on
to
coauthor
(with
Robert
Shea)
the
mind-boggling
Illuminalusl
(cut
into
a
trilogy
byits
publisher),
got
his
PhD
in
psychology,
wrote
the
66new-age"
classicCosmic
Trigger,,
collaborated
on
two
books
withTimothy
Leary,wrote
a
whole bunchmore
on
his own,
released
a
punk-rock
album,
and
toured
as
a
stand-upcomedian.
Robert
Anton
Wilson
has
expanded
as
manyminds
with
his
books
as
all
the
Sandoz
acidever
manufactured.
A
small surprise, then,to
finally
see
this
white-bearded,
Buddha-like
man
dressed
in
the
same
casual
suitthat
your
collegephysics
professor
wore-a
slightly
wacky
Buddha,
to
be
sure,
cracking
jokes
and
reciting
Monty
Python
routines
in
a
pleasantly
gruff
Brooklyn
accent.
Wilson's
conversation
is
startlingly like
his
books,his
words
tying
together
an
amazing
diversity
of
facts,
theoriesandpunchlines
in
a
way
that
gently
prodsat
your
sense
of
reality.
Oh
well,
as
Wilson's
readers
know well
enough,
it's
always
fun
to watch
as
your
preconceptionsare
blown
to
little, tiny
bits.

HIGH
TIMES:
Who
do
you
think
is
responsible
for
the
"War
on
Drugs?"
RobertAnton
Wilson:
I
suppose
the
Eli
Lilly
Cornpany.
HT:
How
do
you
figure
that?RAW:
The
War
on Drugs is
chiefly
a
war
on
pot,
according
to
JudgeSweet.
Eighty-five
percent
of
the
drug
budgetis
going
into
pursuingpot-smokers.
They're trying
to drive
pot
off
themarket
because
the
CIA
is
a
makins
a
big
profit
out
of
thecocainebusiness,and
Eli
Lilly
provides
the
materialsthatthe
Colombians
need
to
makecocaine out
ofthe
coca.
So
they
want
to keep
the
cocainebusiness
going.
By
the
way,
do
you
know
who owns
EliLilly?
HT:
No,
I
don't.
RAW:
TheQuayle
family
owns
a
largepartand George Bush
owns
a
largepart.
HT:
Howmuch
dovou
think
the
US
government
is
involved
in
maintain-ing thatsupplyof materials
fromEli
Lilly
to Colombia?RAW: Well,
the
govemment
isn't
doing anything to
stop
Eli
Lilly
tiom
sending
those
materials
down
to
Colombia
and
there's lots of
cases
wherethe
