    Some of the great literary geniuses of the day were drug users. Cooleridge had a serious opium habit. His poem 'Kubla Khan' is essentially a giant ode to drug induced hallucination.

    Drugs give people a lot of great ideas at times.

    Many people who are very creative often have a history of drug/alcohol use/abuse.

    Marijuana is a plant, not a drug.

    I agree, but whether or not they're able to get them down on paper while under the influence is another thing. That can be a challenge at times.

    I just can't believe people are going to waste who knows how much money to drug test William Shakespeare to see if he smoked pot. What a waste. It wasn't even illegal in most places until the United States made it so and well over 100 other countries went along for the ride in the 1960s.

    He was as drunk as a skunk most nights and a lot of his work was written to pay his booze bill.
