Biography of a Hasheesh Eater
by Dave Gross
Fitz Hugh Ludlow died on September 12, 1870, the day after his thirty-fourth birthday. In those short thirty-four years he lived a remarkable and full lifetime - perhaps many lifetimes if one includes the spun-off subjective eternities of time he experienced under the influence of hashish. Today the story can be told of the man behind The Hasheesh Eater.
