Famous N2O Users


I promised to send out this list I have, with well known people, using n2o (nitrous oxide) as a drug. I am sorry, but this list is somewhat Anglo-saxon-oriented, but what can you expect? The original list was published in The Book of Lists by Wallechinsky. It also gives lists of famous people using cocaine, hash, morphine, LSD, mescaline, heroine and opium. If anyone is interested check out the book. It is a bit old, but still as interesting as an old Guinness Book of Records.
