Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - April 18, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, Apr!) 18, 1970 Woetcv Professor Sees Little Harm In Marijuana By KEN POLE EDMONTON (CP) - The LeDain commission into the nonmedical use of drugs was told Friday researchers should be encourage d to continue studying the effects of drugs without fear of intervention by police. House Prorogues FREDERICTON (CP) - The third session of the 46th New B r u n s w i ck legislature prorogued Thursday when Lt.-Gov. Wallace S. Bird gave royal assent to 37 public and 13 private bills. Art Hough, director of counselling at the University of Alberta, submitted a brief to the commission which outlined drug problems on campus. Although, he said, it "seems to be impossible" to get am accurate picture of drug use on campus, marijuana does not appear to interfere with academic performance. Prof. Hough said, however, the use of LSD, amphetamines and opiate drugs sugh as heroin-have adverse physical and psychological effects on users.

Prof. Hough suspected that the percentage of students who progress from marijuana to hard drugs such as heroin was small and admitted during a question period he thought a small cross-section of younger faculty members could be using marijuana, � .r,, _ " ' , 'POT'-NOT COCKTAILS' In California, he said, there have been reports of many professional groups-including doc-t o r.s and lawyersrrthrowing 'fpot partitsV instead, of cocktail parties'."  He was asked by a member of the commission how a student counsellor or a drug researcher should respond to police attempts to get information from his files. Psychologists, like medical doctors, he said, were subject to a code of ethics that prevent them from revealing such information unless the subject is considered dangerous either to himself or to the public. Researchers also should be immune to police intervention. It was recommended that all educational institutions should provide more detailed informa tion on drugs and that "restrictive laws" should be modified because of a seeming majority using drugs and flouting the law. World Balloon Champion Plans Flight Over Rockies ':LANCASTER,' Ont. (CP)' -' Ray Munro, who recently crossed the Irish Sea in a balloon, plans to fly over the Rockies' i 'Whenevef, t, 1 o n g -t an'ge1 wWaJher 'is favorable and "jf, a CanacU'sai City adopts the balloon." Mr. Munro, who holds world records in ballooning and was the first man to parachute over the North Pole, said in an interview here he wanted to fly over the Rockies "because it's the impossible flight."

Mr. Munro said he had always financed'his ventures himself and refused any kind of 'commercial sponsorship, but he added that he would welcome the backing of "a Canadian city." i, NEEDS CITY SUPPORT He said- the flight was beyond his financial means-it would cost about $5,000-and '.'if a Canadian city would like to adopt the balloon, I would be glad to let them sponsor the venture." The flight would leave Vancouver Island and cross to the mainland. From there the balloon would be transported to Hope, B.C., where it would begin its flight over the Rockies. "I would want no support from commercial or military airplanes on the way," Mr, Munro said. A helicopter piloted by Commander Jack Sloan of Ottawa would supply the hot-air balloon with fuel along the way. "It might be done in two stops or in 40 stops along the way," Mr. Munro said. "But if I do it, I will have done the impossible flight." Mr. Munro has worked as reporter and photographer with Vancouver Sun, Vancouver Province, Toronto Star and Chatham, Ont., News.
