We went to see Howard Marks, the famous pot dealer give a talk in London at the Ocean Rooms. He takes a firm stand for the legalization of all recreational drugs, and he’s very funny and persuasive. One point he made as he took a drink of wine, was that Jesus’ first miracle was to turn water into wine, which Howard said was a very good way to win friends. Then he pointed out that Jesus said at the Last Supper to drink the wine in remembrance of Him, but the Church nowadays only gives out a thimble full at a time. Howard said they should drink the whole bottle and get loaded and see God!
