    Interesting talk! Thanks a bunch for uploading. And btw; was I the only one
    who thought it was kind of funny that his surname was “Pollan”? Sounds like
    “pollen” when you pronounciate it. :D Mr plant man!

    When it comes to Cannabis the wisdom of my great grandfather still holds:
    Young people need to say “no”, Adults need to say “yes”

    At pprox 0:30:00 I say It wasn’t just the musicians using pot. What Pollan
    is saying I think is more attributed to the listeners using pot beforehand
    and then more accepting acid-rock or jazz. Pot use is very limited for
    performing of musical improvisation, it will throw ones timing off. The
    performance of music, good music, is a very disciplined process.

    well actually, the bible does talk about an herb where we can smoke,
    somewhere in psalms, i believe. Look, its not that God wants you to smoke
    something you are going to abuse, or get something that is illegal. What
    God really wants for you is to become Born Again and repent of your sins.
    This is the only way to Heaven, for nothing else can save you.

  18. Caniid says:

    the answers at the end are actually pretty good points to think about

  19. Riley Lund says:

    I love Michael Pollen and his abstract views and how ordinary things can
    look so advanced

  20. TheyCalledMeGator says:

    Great lecture, seems like these views haven’t caught on in the last decade.
    Also, damn Pollan that shirt is gigantic.
