How did the boomer generation fail to get this stuff legalized for adult, recreational use? Seriously...it seems like a large portion of their pop/counter-cultural movement revolved around recreational drug use, specifically marijuana...now their children and grandchildren are searched without even a hint of marijuana use all in the name of stopping recreational drug use...wtf boomers?

I'm not saying legalization should have been the all consuming passion of your life (if is just pot after all) but things didn't just not get better, they got worse...

I see what you are saying, but I think you are overgeneralizing the situation. Many "boomers" are on the side of legalization. The acts of a few "boomers" hardly represent the intentions of the whole group. **Edit: I apologize if I misunderstood your original point! **

I'm pretty sure that was largely central to his or her point.

Poor lady. I sincerely hope she can continue this important research at a different university. Suppression of any scientific research is disturbing especially in regards to PTSD. The timing of her termination is questionable as well.

There def has to be some sort of acceptance of rationality when it comes to marijuana or psychedelics on a public scale. I doubt that a system that strives on a conformity and forced memory would easily allow it's majority base to develop open & innovative thinking. Not just in a sense of medical, but for treatments & experiences that help to improve an individual's perspective on life.

This shows the absolute lack of integrity in universities these days.

Instead of being part of a historic study, they once again sold out to political pressure. Their actions make it very clear to see where their motivations lie.

Institute of "Higher Learning" my ass. It's turned into Brainwashing for Profit, pure and simple.

What are we to do when the teachers of our next generations are so obviously corrupt?

I seriously hope a university with some testicular fortitude stands up for what could be a major breakthrough and betterment of humanity. This research needs to happen.
