With a lotMoreToronto is now highlighted in the news, with everyone focusing on the mayor, his drug use, and addictive tendencies. It seems nothing ever changes. This is a story about the drugstore cowboy craze that exploded in Toronto from 1972-1986. With a lot of insane acts and scams, this is a hilarious look at what was considered a normal method to get drugs. It describes a young boys journey from a normal suburban lifestyle to an enforced existence he did not deserve, a move that changes his outlook on life, and irrevocably alters his family situation forever. A productive drugstore cowboy, his tales border on lunacy, with a super-sized side order of madness. These tales are based on real stories, with the names changed to protect the guilty. Addiction and moxy got them inside pharmacies, while insanity got them out. Full of life, the book satirizes sanity, while each page spoofs the sublime. Full of crazy stunts, this narrative is funny and thought provoking as it examines both sides of the street, and discovers many similarities. Addiction is universal- sobriety is one detox away from retox.
