BEN MULRONEY'S account of his friend turned stoner is amusing, but not good
analysis (Sept. 8). He should have spent his dad's money on a science-based
education or gone into politics like the old man.

He wrote: "As a freshman, I had a friend with a near-photographic memory and
a desire to experiment with anything and everything. Four years later, he
was nearly two years away from graduation, he had a world-class collection
of bongs and he frequently forgot why he had even walked into a room.
Deadly? Definitely not. Benign? Ask my friend. He's probably still in
school, trying to graduate."

With respect, anyone who has spent time on a university campus in the past
few years has gleaned enough empirical data to wholly refute his claim.
