If my mother knew I did this for a living, she'd kill me. She thinks I'm selling dope.

Man is a victim of dope in the incurable form of hope.

It was the basilica of gossip, the Vatican of inside dope.

If you think dope is for kicks and for thrills, you're out of your mind.

There are more kicks to be had in a good case of paralytic polio or by living in an iron lung. If you think you need stuff to play music or sing, you're crazy. It can fix you so you can't play nothing or sing nothing.

Science and art are only too often a superior kind of dope, possessing this advantage over booze and morphia: that they can be indulged in with a good conscience and with the conviction that, in the process of indulging, one is leading the higher life

Maybe a nation that consumes as much booze and dope as we do and has our kind of divorce statistics should pipe down about character issues. Either that or just go ahead and determine the presidency with three-legged races and pie-eating contests. It would make better TV.

Avoid all needle drugs, the only dope worth shooting is Richard Nixon.

Today's students can put dope in their veins or hope in their brains.

If they can conceive it and believe it, they can achieve it. They must know it is not their aptitude but their attitude that will determine their altitude.

Dope never helped anybody sing better or play music better or do anything better. All dope can do for you is kill you - and kill you the long, slow, hard way.

Every gathering has its moment. As an adult, I distract myself by trying to identify it, dreading the inevitable downswing that is sure to follow. The guests will repeat themselves one too many times, or you'll run out of dope or liquor and realize that it was all you ever had in common.

One night I went over to get some dope from some Hollywood tough guy.

After I left, my son Scott, who was only fifteen, went over with a baseball bat to kill him. I was laughing out of one eye and crying out of the other. I thought, Who am I kidding?

Why is it you feel like a dope if you laugh alone, but that's usually how you end up crying?

I'm pretty sure people thought I was like a dope rapper.

I'm in between homes right now, but my last house was dope.

Groups like The Mountain Brothers just have to keep on doing what they're doing - just make it dope and just make it different. And not try to compete with other people of color.

I read the Life magazine articles about free love and free dope in California.

At age 20 I drove to Los Angeles.

Once I got to be about twenty-five, I got interested in the music of the time.

I started smokin' dope, I started drinking, I started slowing down and trying to find myself. I didn't want to work in nightclubs.

Stevie Nicks is dope.

If I focus on being an activist and my job is to be a rapper, I'm not going to be as good of a rapper. I need to focus on hip-hop and focus on making the music, so that when the activists come to me and they need my voice to create a platform, then I've got enough people listening to me. Not because I'm conscious, but because I'm dope.

Radio's a scary thing for me. It's dope to be on there.

People put their voice everywhere. All through Instagram comments. As minuscule and kind of stupid as that is, at the same time, it's dope. People really feel like, 'I have to say something,' which is sometimes a little much, but like, 'Go ahead, man. Speak away.'
