The auditor didn't know. Burroughs seemed alright in session and did not regard marijuana as a drug. When he discovered that Burroughs was smoking cannabis, he reported him. Burroughs, one way or another, completed Grad IV and Power Processing (Grade V), and then went to Scotland and did the Clearing Course at the Advanced Org at Edinburgh.And the auditor knew Burroughs and his companion were smoking dope before session and he just let it slide? And violated the auditor's code by auditing over drugs? Umm ..., I find that something of a stretch.
Burroughs thought of cannabis as more like tobacco or coffee, both of which were pervasive at St. Hill, where many were both caffeine and nicotine addicts.
