DURST: Baby Boomers and Marijuana
Wait, wait, you guys. Don't run away thinking that old Bighead is stuck on another of his serious rant ruts here and wander off to some random search engine looking for one of the thousands of Jerry Falwell in a wet t-shirt websites. This is so good, it should be required reading for every psychoanalyst who doesn't believe in self delusion. Despite studies that show more younger kids are trying marijuana than ever before, Baby Boomer parents apparently don't think their kids are involved. I love this. They underestimated the availability of pot and whether their children's friends were smoking it. Probably think because they lost all their connections, they don't exist anymore. Isn't that exactly what you would expect of us self absorbed narcissistic flower parents. "I know you are, but what am I?" Probably pretend not to know why the toilet paper tube and tinfoil are missing all the time either. Come home and find a ball of toilet paper on the top of the tank. "The hell is this?" "Oh yeah, I forgot, the tube broke. Shattered into a million pieces. It was eerie. By the way Ma, we're out of Pop Tarts." Talking about my ge- ge- generation.
