Stanley’s Pharmacy is based on all the stuff I knew I needed to do, but couldn’t. Relationships, man. Empathy. Stuff that’s been lost in the corporate prescription windmill flicking out pills per second where relevance is nothing but geographical convenience at a discounted price. Frontline heroes Nurse and Doctor poster. Their motto is ‘fill everything.’ But not everything is good for you. The drugs are too potent. Too poisonous. I don’t want to discount their potency as a healing modality but there’s no free ride. There’s no free ride for any of this stuff. Anything that elicits a pharmacological response is going to create a cascade effect. All of your body’s systems are connected. It’s all tangled up. Every time you press one button, a whole different set of Christmas lights come on. There’s no silver bullet. So you have to be careful. Don’t listen to the advertising.

You don’t need everything, all the time. You need an ambassador. Somebody in the world of medicine to advocate for your body. And that’s the true role of a pharmacist. Frontline heroes Nurse and Doctor poster. To be an ambassador. I’ve pretty much lived the ideal pharmaceutical life. I spent several years in the Hollywood Hills, working at a couple pharmacies that were really popular with celebrities. A lot of these people were drawn to me because I had more of an Ayurvedic approach: eastern healing, stuff like that. But I was really feeling the debauchery of the hills: beautiful people in beautiful hells, sucked into their mansions, cut off, isolated, addicted, solving problems with pills everyone on everything. It’s an emotionally lazy place.
