SHAYANA over to a friend's place, and we turned on.
Nineteen-year-old college student
I was against the idea of marijuana. I was ignorant. I knew it was a drug,
and I thought it was addictive. But my closest friend smoked—I was close
friends with this guy for four years. He asked me several times to turn on
and I said no. Finally, I decided, what the hell—give it a try.
Twenty-four-year-old market research study director
My older brother gave it to me. He told me not to turn on out of social
pressure; I should be turned on by someone I trusted—himself. He got it for
me, and then I went up to the attic and turned on alone. I came down and
talked to my parents. Only my brother knew I was high. Before that, I didn't
know people well enough, or trust them, to turn on.
I knew almost nothing about pot, but I was completely confident that
nothing would happen, since my brother turned me on.
Twenty-one-year-old unemployed college drop-out
I felt safe with good friends, and I felt it would be all right.

Thus, someone who is extremely close to both the endorser and the individual turning
him on (forty points), and who has an ambivalent attitude about users (ten points), sees no
benefits in use (zero points), and is unsure about its safeness (ten points), is a potential
candidate for being turned on, when the occasion arises. Another person who thinks of the
stories about its dangers as myths, thinks that it would be fun, and has at least a
moderately favorable image of smokers, is likely to be turned on, even by a stranger. One
indication that our scheme reflects something of the actual situation is the fact that many
marijuana users (46 percent of our respondents) report having refused opportunities to
turn on prior to their eventual conversion because one or another circumstance at that time
was not favorable. Any one of these factors could have been the reason, but the two most
often mentioned were the fears about the drug's danger and a lack of closeness with the
person or persons offering the opportunity to try it. With this scheme in mind as a very

rough model, it is possible to see how someone could accept an offer to smoke even
though he is still fearful of the drug's effects, although this is empirically infrequent.
It is relatively rare for the initiate to try to simulate prior drug experience, although it
does occur. The majority going through the initiation ceremony are known to be novitiates
by all present (70 percent of our interviewees), while occasionally some present at the
turning on ceremony will know, while others do not (6 percent)— at a large party, for
instance. It is not uncommon for the respondent to be unaware of what others know of his
prior drug experience (15 percent), and sometimes none present at his turn-on knew that
he was marijuana-naive (g percent). Typically,

Most seeds that fail to start germinating do so because their
shell is too hard to break open and allow water to seep in. At the end
of your germination period you may have found that 25% or more of
your seeds have not managed to pop out. You can help these seeds to
grow by using a method known as Scuffing.
Simply get a small box, like a matchbox. Line the inside of
the box with sandpaper. Place the seeds into the box. Cover the seeds
with more sandpaper.
Close the box and shake the seeds in the box for
a few minutes. Now the seeds are scuffed and their outer shell should
be easier to pop open. Plant these seeds in soil and they should be able

urban centers will have students who are more likely to smoke pot than rural schools. A
second factor is geographical location: colleges and universities on the two coasts,
especially in New York and California—especially California—will contain higher
percentages of pot-smoking students than those in the South, Midwest, or Rocky
Mountain areas. A third factor, interestingly enough, is the quality of the school: the
higher the academic standing of a college or university, other things being equal, the
greater is the likelihood that its students will smoke marijuana. A study conducted in 1966
demonstrated that a fifth of the students attending the "top ranking" institutions had ever
smoked pot (or used "similar drugs or narcotics") while this was true of only 1 percent at
the "not very selective" colleges.22 Since 1966, of course, a rise in marijuana use has
occurred in all schools regardless of quality.
Perhaps because of their urban residence, or partly as a result of their almost
exclusively middle-class socioeconomic status, Jews are far more likely to smoke
marijuana than Gentiles, at least among young adults. About one-quarter of New York's
population is Jewish, and by that factor alone, the Jewish youth is more likely to be
exposed to opportunities for use than is the less urban Gentile population. My sample,
although not representative, even of New York City's marijuana smokers, at least lends
credence to Jewish over-representation among potsmokers; 44 percent of our respondents
were Jewish in background. Although it is possible that this over-representation can be
entirely explained by Jewish dominance in academic and quasi-academic milieu in New
York City (the groups to which I had readiest access), there are indications that lead me to
suspect that there are social and cultural factors linking the Jews to activities such as
Jews have historically been at the growing edge of every civilization where they have
been a part. Many of the avant-garde political and artistic movements today are associated
with marijuana smoking, and the Jews are strongly over-represented in these movements.
This does not mean that all Jews are so associated, or that all participants of these
movements are Jewish. (Nor is it to say that only those actively involved with social
change are likely to smoke marijuana.) But it is to say that Jews will be more likely to be
found among the more progressive artists and writers, and among the more radical and
revolutionary political activists in America today. And it is precisely the political and
artistic avant-garde that is most likely to smoke marijuana. However, we need not even
concern ourselves with society's most progressive and revolutiona Pinhey and I
