Pot and the

higher boredom

Sir: I was interested to read in your extremely good leading article "Forget the lectures. Young people need facts" (1 February), your reservation that pot makes people boring.

If that is the case, then I admit that I have now been boring for more than 30 years and it's helped to keep me sane.

Most of my friends must also be boring. I think I am boring when I am being bored, but for me being bored is a higher state - I'm open to any possibility. I certainly would rather be bored than cold, tired, hungry, afraid or badly needing a pee. Maybe life is a balance and you can only be as interesting as you can be boring.
