"Jonnes is addicted to intriguing etymological and historical tidbits; "dope" comes from doop, Dutch for "sauce," an apt term for the sticky stuff prepared in opium dens. (Booth reports that the world "hip" has an opium-den association; "Its root lay in the fact that addicts gained sore hips from reclining on their sides on hard, opium den bed-boards.")"Jonnes, Jill is the author of 'Hep-Cats, Narcs, and Pipe Dreams A History of America's Romance With Illegal Drugs', published 1999 under ISBN 9780801861659 and ISBN 0801861659.
