In 15 years the high school and college students
who are experimenting with LSD will be running
our institutions and guiding our public policy.
Remember, the college students who are using
LSD and Marijuana today do not comprise a criminal class.
They are not drug addicts seeking to escape.
They're your best educated, your most creative,
and your most courageous young people.
And like it or not, they're going to build you a new civilization.
We're told that perhaps a million Americans, most of them young people, have made the LSD experience part of their lives. Is this a social menance and a cause for alarm?
I don't think so. I see nothing less than the speedy evolution of a new, indigenous religion.
