Dopey: On the Dark Comedy of Drug Addiction

Dave chastises Chris per usual. Dave and Chris talk about stealing medication from sick people and how addiction effects the family. A long time listener, Andrew, (who went to the same rehab as Dave and Chris) calls in and tells us about his relapse after treatment, which included taking copious amounts of RC benzos and blacking out for weeks. Andrew also tells us about homeless culture and the difference between being a hippy and being a hobo (he prefers "hobo," and hates being labelled as a hippy). Hotwheels calls in and gives us an update (and his phone number)!
