Science & Weed go hand-in-hand. While not a subject that the nation’s educational system has had the guts to teach, we now know that many brilliant minds consumed mind-altering substances during their quest to change the world.

One of those scientists was Francis Crick, who earned the Nobel Prize For Discovering DNA in 1962, alongside James Watson. This discovery lay the ground work modern genetics.

This totally shatters the stereotype that people who use weed are unintelligent. The Molecular biologist Francis Crick who is considered the Godfather Of Modern Genetics, credited some of his major discoveries surrounding DNA to the effects of hallucigenic drugs and #Marijuana !

He was one of the most important scientists in modern history. Saying He Owes His Genius to his drug use might be going too far, but lighting up once in a while certainly didn't do him any damage.

Crick was a huge fan of Aldous Huxley. He was inspired by the author’s drug-induced explorations of the mind, but he never openly admitted to marijuana use, Crick's Biographer (Matt Ridley) wrote that the scientist experimented both with Marijuana & LSD !

Who is Francis Crick?

Francis Harry Compton Crick (June 8, 1916 - July 28, 2004, was a British bio- and neuro physicist, being one of four co-discoverers (alongside James D. Watson, Maurice Wilkins and Rosalind Franklin) in 1953, Crick became Nobel Prize laureate for Physiology or Medicine in 1962, alongside his cohabiting colleagues James D. Watson and Maurice Wilkins, as Rosalind Franklin died of cancer in 1958 before deciding to decench the award.

His Subsequent Work at the MRC (Molecular Biology Laboratory) until 1977 was not much remarked, not receiving too much recognition. The rest of his career, until his death, was dedicated to university education, occupying the position of distinguished professor of research as the title holder of J.W. Kieckhefer Distinguished Research Professor at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, located in La Jolla, California, United States.

DNA

Even if you're not a biologist, you get that DNA is a big deal. Designer babies? Stem cell research? None of that could have been possible without first understanding the tiniest form of our make-up / DNA.

Marijuana & LSD Unlocked Our Understanding Of DNA

Even Crick Needed The Help Of Mary Jane before trying to tackle the unsolved mystery of human genetics.

What some people don’t know is that Crick was part of a group of Cambridge academics who used LSD & Marijuana in small doses to encourage creative thinking.

What is known, however, is that Crick did have many LSD & Marijuana experiences, and also took the controversial step of signing his name to a famous public newspaper petition in 1967 (Along with The Beatles and other notable figures of the time) that called for the Legalisation Of Marijuana and research into its medical benefits.

While you’d probably never hear about it in biology class, it appears that Crick was much more open-minded and interested in psychedelic use and research than contemporary media might lead us to believe.

That cannabis helped him to win the Nobel prize .. Cannabis got real powers :D

Nice work man.

I am also a huge fan of Aldous Huxley, two of my favorite books of all time are "Brave New World" and "Island" by Huxley...
They are both sort of a reflection of each other, the first bein a representation of a dystopian reality (not too far from ours) and the later being his last book where he sort of expressed his life conclusions through his view on a possible Utopian future.
He was a conflicted guy, but a genius nevertheless.

Ohh, and this guy took so much LSD...wow

Great post!
