DESCENT INTO PARADISE
You're Valerie Jordan and you've just had your first puff of a reefer. You're not scared. Why should you be? Nobody can kid you, because you know marijuana is not habit-forming. So what's the big deal if a girl wants a kick?
But there comes a day when a kick is not enough. You're feeling down, like you were underground and you know you've got to have a jolt, a blast-heroin!
The next step? A bigger jolt, a louder blast-to the tune of thirty dollars a day-and that's a lot of bread.
It means picking up men-half a dozen a day-what does it matter? You're in paradise. Until the blast wears off and you've got to face reality again: you're hooked, chained, a teen-age dope addict.
