L. Ron Hubard's Rampat Drug Abuse Problems

---

Scientology's doublecross

Scientology's® mad messiah L. Ron Hubbard had serious drug abuse problems which no doubt caused further damage to his already unfortunate state of mental affairs. Hubbard's son L. Ron Hubbard Jr. discussed his father's drug abuse in a sworn affidavit:

"I have personal knowledge that my father regularly used illegal drugs including amphetamines, barbituates and hallucinogens. He regularly used cocaine, peyote, and mescaline."

According to statements made by attorney Michael Flynn, Hubbard, until at least February of 1980, filled out fraudulent "doctor's" prescriptions for a large array of medical drugs for himself.

Sara Hubbard -- one of Hubbard's bigamist wives -- explained that Hubbard was "self-medicated," but that during the few years they were married, she knew of no instances when he used "street drugs."

One-time Scientologist Bent Corydon notes in his book "Messiah or Madman?"

Mr. Armstrong told me, among other things, of a letter from Hubbard to his third wife Mary Sue when Hubbard was in Las Palmas during 1967 at the inception of the Sea Org. This letter is now in the custody of the court. In it Hubbard tells his wife: "I'm drinking lots of rum and popping pinks and greys."

John McMasters told me that on the flagship Apollo in the late sixties, he witnessed Hubbard's drug supply. "It was the largest drug chest I had ever seen. He had everything!"

It was shown in the Armstrong trial in Los Angeles in 1984 that Hubbard even had blank prescription slips from the U.S. Navy, one of which had a prescription for phenobarbital (a barbituate and hypnotic) written in Hubbard's handwriting.

Also, in the Armstrong trial where the "Affirmations" [handwritten essays by Hubbard] were introduced, a letter by Hubbard to his first wife was revealed, the last sentence of which declared: "I do love you, even if I used to be an opium addict."

Incidentally, Hubbard's "Affirmations" document was made publically available in the year 2001 by Mr. Armstrong, many years after the Scientology organization sued Mr. Armstring to try to keep such embarrassing information out of the public record. There was an agreement wherein the crime syndicate would refrain from engaging in its traditional racketeering behavior in exchange for a "gag order" which would keep Mr. Armstrong from making such evidence public. Since the Scientology organization repeatedly broke their part of the agreement, Mr. Armstrong concluded that the gag order was no longer in effect.

It's also important to note that Dr. Kirschner's Post Mortem Report on 25 January 1986 of L. Ron Hubbard found that ten needle puncture wounds were found underneath a bandaide on LRH's buttock. Hubbard was injecting himself with psychotropic dope when he died (as stated in the Sierra Vista Hospital Toxicology Report.)
