RE/MX: High Fidelity

Louis Armstrong - “Muggles”

Louis Armstrong’s 1930 arrest for cannabis possession would qualify as a career lowlight, but so many other things about Cotton Club legend are all high. The New Orleans-born singer, composer and trumpeter first started smoking cannabis in the mid-1920s and recorded one of the first cannabis tunes, “Muggles,” in 1928. (Yes, “muggles” was slang for cannabis, and yes, we really hope J. K. Rowling knew that.) The top highlight, however, is a tale about Armstrong running into President Richard Nixon in 1953 at an airport in Japan. Nixon asked the legend, “Can I do anything for you?” and Armstrong asked for help carrying a small case. We’ll let you guess what he got Nixon to carry, and it wasn’t his trumpet stash.
