Drugs altered their minds, and their minds altered the world. Who knew that such brilliant thinkers were also so willing to experiment with controlled substances?
Here are 13 famous geniuses and their drugs of choice:

13) Thomas Edison: Liquid Cocaine
Vin Mariani was a popular wine around the turn of the century. Why so popular? Probably because it was literally liquid cocaine.
The French chemist Angelo Mariani invented the drink in 1863. He poured Bordeaux wine over coca leaves and let them dissolve. The alcohol acted as a solvent and turned a wine that makes you sleepy into a wine that might keep you up for several days straight.
Thomas Edison, the prolific American inventor was a big fan of the stuff, using it to keep him awake while he worked long hours into the evening.

12) Barack Obama: Weed
Not only did U.S. President Barack Obama toke up in his younger years, he actually owns up to it. In his book Dreams From My Father, Obama describes his many misadventures with a pot-smoking group of friends known as The Choom Gang. The mischievous teens apparently cruised around the Hawaiian countryside, smoking everywhere and anywhere they could.
He’s since called using pot “a mistake”, but unlike former President Bill Clinton, who famously claimed he “did not inhale“, Obama owns up to it. “I never understood that line.” He said. “The point is to inhale.“

11) Francis Crick: LSD
Crick was part of the team Watson, Crick and Franklin, who together discovered the all-important DNA-structure. And to what do we owe this magnificent scientific discovery? LSD, apparently. Crick told many people about his LSD experimentation and how he used the drug while working on the molecular structure experiments.

10) Steve Jobs: LSD
LSD was a big deal for Steve Jobs. How big? Evidently, Jobs believed that experimenting with LSD in the 1960s was “one of the two or three most important things he had done in his life.”
According to Steve’s friend Daniel Kottke, the pair would take long hikes deep into the woods and meditate for hours before taking the drug.
According to Jobs, “Taking LSD was a profound experience, one of the most important things in my life. LSD shows you that there’s another side to the coin.“
So basically, next time you’re on your iPad, you have LSD to thank.

What’s more, he felt that there were parts of him that the people he knew and worked with could not understand, simply because they hadn’t had a go at psychedelics. This latter sentiment also comes through in his recently published biography, wherein Jobs goes so far as to associate what he interpreted as Bill Gates’ dearth of imagination with a lack of psychedelic experimentation:
“Bill is basically unimaginative and has never invented anything, which is why I think he’s more comfortable now in philanthropy than technology. He just shamelessly ripped off other people’s ideas.”
Jobs says: “He’d be a broader guy if he had dropped acid once or gone off to an ashram when he was younger.”

8) Stephen King: Cocaine, Xanax, Valium, NyQuil, Alcohol, Tobacco, Marijuana
It shouldn’t surprise anyone that the guy who wrote Christine and The Shining did a lot of drugs. According to King, his daily routine consisted of taking so many drugs and drinking so much alcohol, he would black out and not remember what he’d written the next day.
However, he’s sober now and continues to write prolifically without relying on substance abuse.

7) Sigmund Freud: Cocaine
Sigmund Freud not only used cocaine, he positively loved the stuff. In a letter to this fiancée, he wrote:
“In my last serious depression I took cocaine again and a small dose lifted me to the heights in a wonderful fashion. I am just now collecting the literature for a song of praise to this magical substance“.

I started using marijuana for migraine prevention but have since discovered certain strains that are energizing and motivating (that actually make me exercise, or have more great ideas, or get more shit done). This is great because I’ve tried tons of other things – energy drinks, smart drugs and nootropics, but most don’t make me feel good and actually reduce productivity. The strains I like best are subtle and I can barely feel them working, apart from an energizing effect and some creative synergy (lateral thinking between brain hemispheres). For writing fiction, marijuana is particularly useful in terms of visualizing and describing scenes in better detail because you can see things in your mind’s eye with greater clarity.

Something I didn’t mention in this video is that I prefer edibles – which some people don’t like because they can make you “wired” and even anxious/strung out (your mind is literally going too fast and you feel jumpy). I find it’s a pretty great state to be in for a lot of creative work, and better/healthier than a redbull or something similar. (Also smoking pot every day isn’t great for your lungs… I bake mine into cookies and eat a half or whole cookie a day… which also reduces my cookie intake because I know I can’t eat more or I’d get too messed up to be productive).

My favorite strains:
-Black lime reserve

10 WEIRDEST Drugs Kids Are Doing These Days https://youtu.be/2Wbq6u_xuNY

Drugs and superstardom seem to go hand in hand. In Hollywood, drugs are easily accessible to celebrities, and many A-list parties center around all-night drug binges and an unlimited supply of alcohol. While many celebs are able to keep their drug use under wraps, others haven’t been so lucky. As fans, we have seen many stars’ lives ruined by their drug habits. Some are able to kick their addictions, but others haven’t been as lucky.

Rocker Pete Doherty’s music career has taken a backseat to his highly-publicized drug addiction. The Libertine’s frontman has been arrested for various drug offenses, including driving under the influence, and possession of crack cocaine, heroin, cannabis and ketamine. The singer completed his last rehab stint in 2015, but his addiction has clearly taken a toll on his life and his appearance. His gaunt frame and severely yellowed teeth should serve as a reminder that drug addiction has harrowing effects on the human body.

Repeated and unsuccessful drug rehab stints seem to be a common theme for many celebrities who just can’t kick their drug habits. Whitney Houston reportedly entered rehab following the airing of her reality show Being Bobby Brown. The singer was never able to kick her habit, and her unusual and drugged-out appearance was the main topic in gossip magazines. During an interview with Diane Sawyer, Whitney admitted drugs were an issue for her in the past, but she had moved on from her addiction. But when she was found dead in a hotel bathtub, the truth was revealed. Cocaine was found in her system, and drug paraphernalia was strewn across her hotel room. Sadly for fans of the singer, her life and career is still tarnished by her drug use and untimely death.

Heath Ledger also had an unsuccessful rehab stint prior to his death. The actor wanted to kick his drug habit prior to filming The Dark Knight, but his attempt was unsuccessful. He was found dead in his Manhattan apartment, and the coroner found a lethal mix of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam and doxylamine in his system. Fans were shocked to hear that drugs were the cause of his death.

Although drugs have been the reason behind many celebrity deaths, many stars get a new lease on life. NBA player Lamar Odom was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel back in October 2015, but medical personnel were able to bring him back to life. He was sent to a Los Angeles hospital where he underwent therapy to help restore his memory and to help him kick his habit. But Lamar’s addiction has other plans for him. It has since been reported that he is back on crack, and his ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian, has left him once and for all.

When our favorite stars battle with drug addiction, we have no choice but to sit back and watch as they spiral out of control. This list of 10 celebrities who have been ruined by drugs is a testament to the amount of damage drugs can do to one’s life and career.

In Colombia, the heirs to Pablo Escobar’s drug empire are conducting business as usual — though with a somewhat lower profile. Today’s Medellin drug cartels are highly structured and run much like multinational corporations. But violent gangs operating in the city’s slums provide the muscle; known as combos, they’ve carved Medellin into fiefdoms, imposing invisible borders between gang territory — borders that, when ignored, often get people killed.

VICE News travelled to Medellin to meet gang members — along with top cartel leaders and assassins — who revealed the inner workings of the city’s modern-day cocaine industry.
