Pot is Bad For the Brain

It takes a nice, peaceful, brilliantly talented hippie guitarist — Jeff “Skunk” Baxter of the Doobie Bros. — and turns him into a Republican military strategist. From 2001:

He’s currently working for the Department of Defense as an adviser to the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization and has also served as a top military adviser for numerous congressmen and senators.

“To most of the world, Skunk Baxter is one of the great rock and roll guitar players. Inside the Beltway, he’s one of the leading experts on military defense, and we listen to his advice all the time,” said Republican California congressman Dana Rohrabacher. “He knows all about weapons technology and has a better understanding of the strategic game going on than I do, and I’m on the International Relations Committee.”

    I had Jeffrey speak to my group awhile back. Very sweet man, very knowledgeable of course, understood the science. Passionate, but not intense or wacko in demeanor, just folks. Signs his emails “Fighting for Freedom and having fun.” Good dude, great American.

    I agree. Based on what I know of him, I love the guy.
