Of course no one smoked marijuana in public, or in the classroom – it wasn’t THAT cool of a time
The coolest professor I had in college was Dr. Dean, who taught history. He was such an excellent orator because he fully immersed you in the stories he told. Dr. Dean truly made history feel alive and compelling. Sometimes I would get so caught up in what he was saying that I forgot to take notes. I never really cared for any of my other classes, but I never once missed one of his history lectures, he was just that interesting. I came to find out that Dr. Dean was a huge cannabis smoker, and liked to get good and ripped right before class. No wonder he was so into telling his story, he was high as a kite! Back in those days cannabis was not seen as being a big deal. A few years later he would have been fired for smoking cannabis in a college office, but it was a much cooler time back then. Of course no one smoked marijuana in public, or in the classroom – it wasn’t THAT cool of a time. On weekends we would sometimes gather at his house, and just like in his office he would smoke cannabis and tell long involved stories. I think the entire reason he got into teaching was just to have a reason to smoke marijuana and run his mouth! Today he would probably skip over being a college professor and just host a podcast. Almost half the podcasts I listen to are just people getting high on cannabis and then telling stories, so he would have fit right in!
