Is it physically possible to consume the contents of Raoul Duke's suitcase in the film "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" in the time period allotted?

"We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... and also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls."
This impressive drug collection presents the question, 'Could a human physically consume this collection, in the time period of 11-13 March that the Mint 400 takes place?'
Granted of course that most of the cocaine is swept to the wind in the opening scene.
