Among members of most baby-boom or younger adult demographics, it’s hard to find people who, er, didn’t take Nancy Reagan’s advice and feel entirely one way or the other about it. Frankly, I’ve seen this topic addressed more honestly in fiction than in non-, so I was heartened to read about “Can’t Find My Way Home: American in the Great Stoned Age, 1945-2000” in Salon this morning.
Can’t say how good the book is, but this interview with the author — you’ll have to sit through a Visa ad, sorry — is thoughtful and interesting. If nothing else, this passage made common sense:
If we really don’t start talking about drugs honestly, we’re never going to get anywhere with drug policy reform in this country.
