Re: Drugs

To the Editor:

I feel it is important to let you all in on a discussion my friends and I had one evening. Unable to get hold of Jane, we passed the time cleaning bowls, made a thousand calls trying to find out where she was and basically. . . just plain Jones'd. Eventually, when the bowls were all scraped and the window was opened just enough for a six-foot-five guy to crawl out, we realized the rain. . . (despair). . . A trip to the shed was in order.

This is what happens after a big drug bust. We blame the London police for the night's apparent lack of direction. We came up with the following and thought it would be a good freelance attempt:

Consider – of Western's 25,000 students, 17 per cent smoke da herb, one geebo a week, and seven per cent smoke $40/week. THUNDERSTRIKE! $2,735,200 per year. With London added in, that equals $8,398,000 per year. Of course, this is just an educated guess from three pot smokers. U C, marijuana is a motivator.
