Did you know that many famous discoveries were made by people who were on drugs? Go to public school in America and you'll hear teachers warn against drug usage. What these teachers fail to mention is that many of the world's greatest discoveries were made thanks to drugs and people who used them. It's true: many of the world's greatest minds were, in fact, influenced by illicit drugs. So what are the things done by people on drugs?
The list of discoveries made while high is impressive. Multiple Nobel Prize winners used LSD during their research. Thomas Edison's many inventions were made while on drugs. And one famous astronomer and scientist thought of some of his best ideas while high. That's the crazy part of all this: many of these discoveries were made by household names. Sigmund Freud was an avid cocaine user and even Moses was probably high on drugs when he received the ten commandments. Ever had a Coca-Cola? Thank cocaine. Know what DNA is? Thank cocaine. Do you like reggae music? Thank marijuana. (Though maybe that last one isn't so surprising.)Vote up the discoveries made on drugs you think are the most impressive. And then DO NOT DO DRUGS. Just because these great minds did them doesn't mean drug use should be condoned. The list of people who died because of drugs is infinitely longer.
