December 21, 1970 ~ Elvis stops by the White House wanting to talk to President Nixon about how he could help the President with his war on drugs. Dick agreed to meet with Elvis and presented him with his very own Narcotics Bureau badge.
Elvis asked that the meeting be kept “secret” so he could presumably do some “undercover” work. The Washington Post broke the story a year later presumably while working on another story related to … um … President Nixon.
Ironic that years of abuse of prescription drugs via the bag of Dr. Nichopoulos would kill Elvis on the floor of his bathroom in August 1977.
