Do you remember your first joint? Or generally, speaking, your first experiment with weed? Was it back when you were a teenager, behind your neighbor’s garage, with a friend you met at the park? Or maybe it was just in the past year since marijuana has recently been legalized in California. Or maybe you’ve never partaken in that kind of behavior, and in which case, bravo to you.
Well, it’s no surprise that people have been getting high for years, and probably even longer than we realize. And it should be even less of a surprise to hear that Alice Cooper smoked his first joint with none other than the one-and-only, Jimi Hendrix.
Alice said he went to see Jimi perform, was invited back to the hotel room after the show, and then Jimi offered him a joint. They also happened to be sitting on one of those old quarter-operated vibrating hotel beds, which Jimi told everyone was a spaceship. We think that story wins the internet.
Anyway, read the full story and more about Alice Cooper’s past drug use here.
