I don't think everyone looks at Elvis with rose colored glasses, but that does not mean we do not seek other possible answers to some of the claims which are made. I have shown other answers to several claims here before, they tend to be ignored by those who just don't want any answer except their accepted one. Thats fine by me its the right of everyone here to decide what answers they accept or discount.
As far as the term "junkie" Right after Elvis died Red and Sonny West and Steve Dunleavy were on Geraldos show or Good MOrning America-can't remember which. They were defending their book-Dunleavy called Elvis a junkie. Both Wests did not like him calling Elvis a junkie-they had never described him in that way to him. If I recall correctly they never appeared with Dunleavy again.
I have said this once before-I have had druggies cousins in my family for a few years. When they got really bad they did not work, they flopped wherever they could. They lost interest in everything but being high. The closest thing they did to work was they stole or begged to get drugs. One sold pot to raise money for his own habit. They did not read books, or watch movies, their weight dropped, they only came around me to try to get a handout. They did not listen to much music let alone make it. Their sole mission was to score the next drug. One of them is no longer with us. The others mom commited him to a rehab after he was caught trying to break into a neighbors home. They were junkies in my book. IMO Others don't see it like that its fine by me. I've stated my opinion (which is backed up by scientific research in many instances concerning inherited traits) that their are reasons people get hooked easily and others don't. If some don't believe it okay-but it is a possiblity in Elvis's case as in anyone else's. Can I prove it-nope. But I'm willing to consider it is a pretty good possiblity.
