Hanging Out With Heroin Addicts

One of the entrancing aspects of the heroin world is the sudden access you have to people different from yourself--people of other races, cultures, income levels. In line at a dope spot you may find yourself talking to someone you'd cross a deserted street to avoid, and you can find yourself sharing drugs with someone much older/younger, much richer/poorer and much more famous/obscure. I've been asked by movie stars if I know where to, uh, you know, like. I've also chatted with people who live in housing projects as we waited in line for our little bags.

Ann Marlowe, How To Stop Time, 1999
