Yes, me too, and it was the last Percy novel I read and by far (I

Can't agree with you about medical marijuana and would only add that
the distinction is unnecessary, because as Marshall McLuhan rightly
pointed out, the difference between the potheads and the drinkers is a
cultural, not moral, orientation, understanding that culture rests in
great part on the senses. That one or the other sense/culture is
rational and the other not is totally a prejudice of the hyper-literate.
I say this as a happy and quite moderate beer drinker addicted latterly
to non-fiction & who could not attain to bourbon or pot.....my
incapacity for the finger-measured drink probably cause for suspicion...
