Reefer Madness!

Rand Paul was a member of a secret irreverent society at Baptist Baylor University when he was a student there back in the early ’80s, according to a new article in GQ. The group was a real thorn in the side of the straitlaced administration: If the school learned of your membership in the group, you faced expulsion. Sounds harmless, maybe even admirable. But things get a bit hairy when a female student from the time recounts to GQ the story of Paul and another member of the group kidnapping her, trying to force her to take hits on a bong, and eventually making her bow down in a creek and worship the false idol “Aqua Buddha.”
