In 1969, a Defense Department study showed that 20 percent of US soldiers in Vietnam were using marijuana either occasionally or frequently, although studies suggest the real figure may of been closer to 50%. By 1969, military police were arresting 1,000 soldiers per week for possession of cannabis. Heroin use also spread within a small group of soldiers and was readily available for only 2-3 dollars per dose. Drug urine analysis tests were performed on some soldiers before returning home.
There are many who accuse the soldiers of being wrong to smoke cannabis in such a situation. But in times of such mental and physical anguish, who can blame them for wanting to unwind and relax in their downtime. We sell a ceramic gun bong, but have never seen a shotgun used in this way before!
