This week on Dopey! In a doozey of an episode, we are joined by my friend Jay who tells his ridiculously epic Dopey journey.  Jay grew up in bucolic Sayville, Long Island and fell into the classic addict abyss of alcohol, drugs, violence and crime. It all culminated in a crazy lucrative business selling weed, coke, pills, heroin and eventually fentanyl.  From there it went as downhill as it could go, to treatments in Florida where he got involved in the infamous practice of body brokering. Tune in this week to one of the Dopiest stories we've ever had the privilege to  tell. Stay Strong Dopey Nation and fucking toodles for Chris.
