Hmm....welcome to the universe of reporting which doesn't have to deal with facts, which doesn't even have to have done real research to back itself up.
Here's a story saying that U.C Santa Cruz is the "Most Stoned" Campus in the U.S.....which surprised me right off the bat because I've been to Santa Cruz, the city not the school, and it really didn't strike me as this huge pot smoking mecca....but, to get back to the point, it comes out later in the article that the bold headline, to use the Mercury News' phrase, is based not on anything particularly objective but instead on the writer's general feel for Santa Cruz, which has a 'reputation' for being left-wing and counter-cultural and the fact that there was a pro-pot demonstration by the medical marijuana people---a program which, I should say, is legal in California.
So, ok, this writer comes to Santa Cruz on April 20th, 4/20 (whooaa, like, he he, that's a pot term isn't it, 4/20, wooo, right, whatever) interviews a few pot heads, sees one party where people skate board off of crates, and declares with that royal authority that ignorant writers sometimes grant themselves that UCSC is THE most stoned campus in America.
Why didn't they just take down the names of prominent hippy towns, put 'em up on a dart board, close their eyes, and throw---because the story looks like it could be written about virtually any college town.
Even Christian colleges, as the allegations that Laura Bush sold small amounts of weed at a Methodist school testifies to.
