I doubt he engaged in that kind of stuff. Even if it was briefly, I wouldn't like to believe Jim had a puff or took a drug. But he passed long ago, so yeah, it's not a big deal.

That was mentioned in the Brian Jay Jones biography, which is a good read.
Amen to that. That was a great book. Learned a lot about the man, his faults, his ambitions, his lifelong friends. I should re-read that sometime.

I've read the whole thing twice, and skimmed through certain passages dozens of times. Brian Jay Jones is most excellent in not overlooking any small, insignificant details - even right down to how Jim was dressing and how he was cutting his hair and beard in certain phases and eras of his life and career.
