According to the people around him he did cut down on his intake before the Aloha shows. The Aloha version of CC Rider is lacking all the intensity that for an examle the Hampton Roads 1972 version had.

I'm not saying there weren't drugs in his system from previous use, or that he didn't go back to his regular ways after the show, but no way he was frickin high for either show. It reminds me of people that say that Elvis was high during the MSG press conference, another ridiculous statement.
Again, Elvis was a drug user and abuser by 1973. He didn't turn the habit off for two concerts. No one is claiming he was high, but to try to convince yourself he hadn't popped any pills on January 14th is based on fantasy. Keep on dreaming....
