There are still pockets of reefer madness that pop up every now and then. This one from Dr. Ruairi Henley writing in the Irish Times is particularly amusing:
I was aware during my college years of the existence of a few long-term cannabis users. I freely admit I regarded these people as a bunch of brain-dead, attention-seeking idiots suffering from a chronic aversion to personal hygiene.
Unfortunately, these clowns usually attracted a cult following of guitar-strumming, arty types whose idea of a fun weekend was to stand outside Brown Thomas screaming abuse at customers intending to buy fur coats.
Another interesting feature of the male section of this half-witted species was their apparent inability to use a razor on a regular basis.
In fact, I cannot recall ever meeting a clean-shaven pothead. This is an approach to grooming they appear to share with trade union officials and borderline communist politicians.
