Many Famous Scientists and inventors of all ages have admitted to taking #Marijuana. Some of them have even claimed it enhance creativity, inventiveness and intelligence, while others have gone one to advocate Marijuana usage.

Famous American paleontologist and evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould had reportedly been using marijuana since 1982 until his death in 2002.

He was passionate about Medical Weed. Taken by abdominal cancer at age 40, he medicated with herb all throughout his career.

According to Gould, his use of Marijuana had the "Most Important Effect"
on his eventual recovery !

Stephen Jay Gould (September 19, 1941 - May 20, 2002)

He was a paleontologist, evolutionary biologist and American historian of science, of Jewish origin. Gould was one of the most influential and well-known popular writers of his generation. Gould spent most of his professorial career at Harvard University and the Paleontologist at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. In the last years of his life, Gould taught his biology and evolution at New York University, near his home in SoHo.

Gould's most important scientific contribution was the theory of punctuated equilibriu, he developed with Niles Eldredge and which the two published in 1972. The theory proposes that most evolution is characterized by long periods of evolutionary stability.

The theory totally contrasted with the relatively grounded idea of ​​phyllochian gradualism, which implicitly asserted that evolutionary changes were marked by a continuous, gradual and even predictable change of species, which the scientific world, before publishing the terror of the equilibrium, sought to identify in how fossils suggested a gradual evolution.

The Forbidden Medicine

He was recognized for his work on punctuated equilibrium or evolution that occurs in short bursts over over long periods. But what really made him tick?

Gould stood strong as one of the scientists who smoked weed and a pot advocate until his death and he turned a few heads in the scientific community when he came out as a medical marijuana user. It was the best way to treat his nausea associated with cancer treatments.

In 1998 he testified in the case of Jim Wakeford, a Canadian medical-marijuana user and activist.

He wrote The Forbidden Medicine :

Marijuana worked like a charm…the sheer bliss of not experiencing nausea — and then not having to fear it for all the days intervening between treatments — was the greatest boost I received in all my year of treatment, and surely had a most important effect upon my eventual cure.
