'Blown Away' - 33 Brazen Ads For Cocaine From The 1970s And 80s Published In High Times Magazine

Occasionally you may come across a strange item on Amazon that, on closer inspection, is definitely some kind of drug paraphernalia masquerading as something more innocent.

We've all been there, smiling and musing to ourselves that something so obvious could have got by the censor's scrutiny. After all, it's just harmless fun and no one would take this stuff seriously, right?

But that's nothing compared to these brazen adverts from copies of High Times magazine from the 1970s and 1980s. They are not shy at all about the products they're selling or what people will be using them for.

OK so the magazine is a publication dedicated to marijuana and all things narcotic, but there is no subtly in the various ways these items are presented. "Coke Chopper & Straw" reads oneā€”and that's not a drinking straw for a carbonated soft drink.

"For Your Precious Powder" declares another, boldly stating that it is limited edition silver, handcrafted, with a built in spoon "to keep your flake dry and fluffy."

In today's changed landscape you feel like you're breaking the law just by viewing them. Having said that, I haven't read a copy of High Times recently so for all I know they could be featuring ads for gold-plated nose douchers.

Take a look at them below and you can thank Redditor jajajaNO for bringing them to the internet's attention.
