BOOMER QUIZ: WHYDYA THINK THEY CALL IT DOPE?

("Lapino Blanco" painted by Grace Slick -- yeah, that Grace Slick)

Here's part six of my nine-part series of quizzes about the Baby Boomer era, right after the fold.

There will be no grading system for these quizzes, I created them just for the fun of it. Play it with your friends. The answers will be immediately available in case you're not so good with delayed gratification (as they claim about us).

Feel free to share, but give me credit, dammit. Copyright 2008 Maggie Jochild.

DRUGS

Boomers are the drug generation. Below is a list of drug nicknames used primarily during the 1960s and 1970s. Match each of them to one of the six main drugs of choice used during that era: Marijuana, amphetamines, LSD, psilocybin, heroin, or amyl nitrate. (Cocaine and crack became easily available somewhat later.)

Each quiz is more fascinating and clever than the last. I hope you will eventually collect these into a little gift book. As the present slang goes, "your work is dope!"

THX, Sue. I just spent five hours on the "finale" of the quizzes -- you'll see why, when I post it. The next two are not quite ready yet.

As for the book idea, from your mouth to g*d's ear...
