Above the age of 23, the
study shows a quarter of the
men still smoked marijuana.
Johnston said he thinks that
drug use is high because "Its
in those years (early twenties)
when kids tend to be in peer en-
vironments and by 23 years
they are out of that and going
into work environments,"
B E F 0 R E graduating
from high school in 2969, less
than a quarter of those survey-
ed had used any illicit drug.
About half of those using drugs
had merely experimented once

or twice, usually with mariju-
ana," said Johnston.
Bullard pointed out that one
obstacle blocking the decrimi-
nalizing of marijuana is the
protest from parents of high
school students who are afraid
use would increase.
The study was originally
planned to be presented to the
White House Special Action Of-
fice on Drug Abuse Prevention
which was set up by former
President Nixon.

he wasn't here physically, if
you can understand that"
Lest any visitor forget what
Ann Arbor's celebration was
about, numerous photographs
and sketches of Muktananda and
his own guru, Nityananda (sort
of a spiritual grandfather to the
group), flickered in the candle-
light.
While most danced or sang,
other groups huddled to share
any tidbits'of information about
Baba that may have drifted
back from California.
CLOSING C H A N T S and
meditation were followed by
"prasad." Gifts of fruit, sweets
and flowers are brought to the
ashram, and redistributed as a
sort of spiritual blessing during

again to swap anecdotes about
Baba.
And when the talk concerns
a hospitalized guru, the stories
get pretty wild.
ONE MAN explained that de-
votees were being kept away
from the hospital because Muk-
tananda, they say, knows the
moment a follower enters the
hospital. Wanting to give each
devotee attention, Muktananda
was unable to get his needed
rest.
Another said he was teaching
meditation to the nurses.
But, while Kempton denied
some of these stories, the ones
she offered from the West Coast,
in closer proximity to the guru,
were even wilder.

THREE TO four hundred fol-
lowers besieged he western ash-
ram daily to give gifts of fruit
or flowers for the guru.
At the hospital, other patients
visit the guru and ask for photos
of him, according to Kempton
She adds that nurses have bees
very anxious to serve Baba with
whatever treatment or medica-
tion he needs.
And, in the way of miracles,
Kempton says that a patient
came out of a six-week coma
after his wife put a photo of
Baba in the room.
Muktananda reportedly told a
young girl awaiting operation
for a brain tumor that, because
of her love for him, she would
be well, says Kempton.
"AFTER THE operation, the
girl said the mantra (sacred
chant) that Baba gave her had
gives her peace. She's now
happy and optimistic. A lot f
things like that have been going
on," says Kempton.
For whatever reason, or per-
haps simply because of their
faith that there is a reason.,
local celebrations were untoch
ed by any show of sadness.
The evening drew to whati
other parts of the town, would
have been an early close a
