CU Boulder history instructor baffled and offended by pro-pot protest

Half the students in Prof. William Watson's Western Civilization course at University of Colorado Boulder abandoned class last Wednesday to join the "4/20" pro-legalization marijuana protest being held on campus. Watson blogged that he was taken by surprise by the pot protest-- an annual event that garners national media coverage-- but that it ironically gave his lecture that day on Protestant religious values greater power and relevancy. Watson told the students who showed up that it was the Protestant Work Ethic that made America great and encouraged them to "live responsible and sober li[ves]... and one day become good spouse[s] and parent[s]." He told them that they would all receive extra credit for their "faithful attendance" and for "choosing to learn about responsibility, instead of blowing smoke in the quad."
