Quotes from the Festival Yesterday:

“The stuff you learn when you are high, you are less likely to remember the next day.” —Ethan Nadelmann

“Once we get the conversation to what do all kids need, instead of what do poor kids need, we will have more resonance and power.” —Pamela Cantor

“I wish we could get out of the mindset that we need to check up with our doctor. I like the notion of a check-in, and I don’t want this check-in to be an exhaustive search to find something wrong. I don’t think that’s a path to a healthy society. The truth is we will always find something. Since we all harbor abnormalities, that’s a recipe for all of us getting on medication.” —Gilbert Welch

“It’s no longer demographics. There are psychographics and, for me, stylegraphics.” —Mauro Porcini
