This was in the early to mid 1970s. I am older than I look.

To be honest I still don't know exactly what was going on. When I first started meditating in my early 20s, I would experience something like a "THC flashback" whenever I meditated intensely. I would have put this down to normal meditative experience if it wasn't for the fact that it slowly faded after I gave up marijuana for good. After about 5 years I began to experience meditation as I do now, as a simple open mindful state, rather than a "zoomy" mindful state.
