Book traces the long strange trip of drug-induced spirituality

Says Religion News Service: In his new book, "The Harvard Psychedelic Club," which has received enthusiastic reviews and generated interest in Hollywood, Lattin expertly shows how Timothy Leary, Richard Alpert, Huston Smith and Andrew Weil crossed paths at Harvard in the fall of 1960 before going their own separate ways.

Lattin, a veteran religion reporter who walked on the wild side more than a few times himself, traces how the four men forever changed the way people — both straight and stoned — think about spirituality.

A 2004 law already bans Muslim headscarves in classrooms.
