The CIA’s murderous targeting of Tupac Shakur, Kurt Cobain, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, the Black Panthers and other leftist political activists is explored in this eye-opening interview with Drugs as Weapons Against Us author John Potash. We hear about the role that Timothy Leary and the Grateful Dead played in the MKUltra Acid Tests, how LSD was used to derail the anti-war movement in the 1960, and more in this uncensored Buzzsaw interview, hosted by Sean Stone.

He was founding publisher/editor of Social Justice Action Quarterly a national social work school newspaper that lasted four years and won four honors in the Campus Alternative Journalism Awards. He also received a certification in acupuncture drug treatment at Mutulu Shakur s former clinic, Lincoln Detox, in the Bronx. While mostly working as an addictions counselor, he has published articles (Z, Covert Action, Baltimore Chronicle), poems and short stories.
