The only drugs I take are to help with my throbbing knees

Have your say

Hey dude, you know what they say.

If you think you can remember your 60s, you probably haven’t reached them yet.

According to The Independent, one in 10 of those living in London who did some of their growing up during the summer of love is still regularly puffing on a joint, snorting a line of cocaine or dropping a tab of acid.

I confess (as I approach my 64th birthday) to quite a bit of puffing, snorting and dropping.

But it tends to come with age and none of it involves the ingestion of illegal substances.

For most in their dotage, the drugs of choice tend to be statins, paracetamol and anything which brings some sort of relief to throbbing knees.
