The novel "Drugs" by J.R. Helton.
This is a no holds barred realistic view of the "drug world" and though it made me wince and cringe many times..and feel some of the paranoia that Jake himself has felt when high, I recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Jerry Stahl(who calls it "truly riveting"), Jonathan Ames, and all the other authors and essayists whose words have an unmistakeable ring of truth to them and brings you effortlessly into their world-like it or not!
Drugs can be found at your local bookstore and also on at Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Drugs-A-Novel-J-R-Helton/dp/1609804015/ref=sr_1_sc_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1348506220&sr=1-1-spell&keywords=drugs+jelton
