From People on Psychedelics
Robert Friedman is a founder and chairman of Ivanhoe Mines.
- "The fact that I was an antiwar protester. That I hung around with people from the Grateful Dead. That I smoked marijuana and took LSD. When you look at the state of the union address, you see three people there: President Clinton, Vice-President Al Gore and, in the background, you see this fellow named Newt Gingrich, who's the Speaker of the House. And all three of them in the 1960s were admitted marijuana smokers, at a minimum."
