I wasted 45 minutes of my life watching a Comedy documentary last night about a stand-up comedian`
who first abstains from marijuana and then binges on marijuana.

They run a series of tests on him “before and after”-health test, cognitive, etc etc.

One of the tests given is a psychic test! And it is administered at the CFI Center in Los Angeles!
What gives?

I have no idea.  I live 35 miles south of there, and it requires driving right through the center of the city so I never go to any CFI events.  Maybe someone who lives closer can answer your question, Vy.

You can contact Jim Underdown, executive director of CFI West or one of his associates. I think they would be glad to discuss your concerns about a CFI program.

Thanks for the responses.  I’m assuming it was done in the interests of showbiz.
Perhaps the comedian himself is a CFI member.
It just seemed odd that a CFI Branch would be doing “psychic testing”.
Maybe I didn’t get the joke or something.
Both tests before and after revealed no psychic powers.
