“I used to do drugs in the 80s. Now I don’t care what the temperature is”

"I used to do drugs in the 60s/70s/80s/90s. Now I don’t care what the temperature is” is a joke that has been cited in print since at least the early 1990s. Authorship is unknown. American stand-up comedian Bill Hicks (1961-1994) was credited in a 2012 tweet, but his jokes have been widely shared and this does not appear among them.
