From the WSJ Opinion Archives The Summer of Drugs Forty years ago, dirty, stinky hippies converged on San Francisco to "turn  on, tune in and drop out."   by TED NUGENT Wednesday, July 4, 2007 12:01 A.M. EDT This summer marks the 40th anniversary of the so-called Summer of Love. Honest and  intelligent people will remember it for what it really was: the Summer of Drugs.  Forty years ago hordes of stoned, dirty, stinky hippies converged on San Francisco to "turn on,  tune in, and drop out," which was the calling card of LSD proponent Timothy Leary. Turned  off by the work ethic and productive American Dream values of their parents, hippies instead  opted for a cowardly, irresponsible lifestyle of random sex, life-destroying drugs and mostly  soulless rock music that flourished in San Francisco.  The Summer of Drugs climaxed with the Monterey Pop Festival which included some truly  virtuoso musical talents such as Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, both of whom would be dead  a couple of years later due to drug abuse. Other musical geniuses such as Jim Morrison and  Mama Cass would also be dead due to drugs within a few short years. The bodies of chemical-

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
