The research, conducted before, during and after the period of civil unrest, found that the number of mothers with depressive symptoms increased from an average of 21% before the incident to an average of 31% during the acute period, spiking to 50% in August 2015.

Fifty Years After "Summer of Love," Drug Use Still Going Strong for Some

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 19:05:23 EST

(image) Fifty years ago, this summer, a social phenomenon emerged in California and swept the nation. Called the "Summer of Love," it began with tens of thousands of "hippies" converging in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district during the summer of 1967. Many were against the Vietnam War and consumerism, and passionate about music and meditation. There was widespread use of illicit drugs such as LSD and cannabis, as well as legal substances including alcohol, tobacco and tranquilizers. Fast forward to 2017. The bohemian "flower children" of the 1960's are now a formidable segment of the nation's baby boomer generation. Not surprisingly, many in this age group, now largely in their 50s and 60s, have continued to struggle with drug and alcohol abuse. And it is changing the face of addiction in America.(image)
