Promotion of pedophilia and glamorizing the drug culture. I am ashamed to have ever looked up to these deviants. Burroughs shows little respect for the shamans that he would later promote as an ancient practice.
The most interesting part was the name drops of Hassan Sabbah (Hassan-i Sabbah) and H.G. Wells, the leader of the infamous Hashshashins (assassins). His mountain lair of Alamut is where he supposedly used hash, alcohol, and women to convince people he had some kind of mystical power and would get them to do his bidding.
