The Weed?

Or Morphine?

[I looked up a dozen 1935 articles containing the phrase "dope arrest" on NewspaperArchive.com. All but one were about people selling narcotics -- morphine or heroin. The exception was about someone dealing cocaine. - Dave]

Doped singer

Some things never change, huh?

Doped?

Can someone please explain what is a "doped singer", i'm not familiar with that phrase.

[Doped means on drugs (back then, probably morphine). - Dave]
