You know how I know the 2010s suck as a decade? You can’t advertise your sweet cocaine snorters and cases in magazines anymore. These days, magazines have ads for … I don’t even know. That’s probably why they aren’t making any money anymore. The glossies aren’t marketed to the high-income cocaine snorters.

These days, people keep their cocaine use under wraps. Can’t let folks know you have a thing for the ol’ powder toots. Fuck, just possessing cocaine will land you in jail. What a shitty damn time to be alive.

But in the 1970s? Shit, everyone was doing cocaine. The president, the pope, that guy Jeff. Jeff loved cocaine. He was all just snort snort snort watch Jaws snort snort. Life was good.

And because everyone was spending all their disposable income on the doing of cocaine, companies wanted to get in on those dollars that were covered in flecks of drugs.

Which brings us to these sweet ads for cocaine paraphernalia from magazines in the 70s. They’re pretty sweet.
