Poe was something of a binge drinker, but he was not a drug user. Oh, and do your own homework.

Actually, he was NOT addicted to opium, although that is a very common misconception.

To noone@yahoo.com - instead of being so flippant, why can't you answer things nicely? Perhaps, someone was jsut wondering what kind of drug he was using. It doesn't necessarily mean it was for homework reasons.

And if you are going to be like that at least leave your email address, so that people know who you are if they care to write you back.
