Was Shakespeare a stoner? Is that why he was so creative?

This made me laugh, but at the same time I’m thinking, “Well, why not?”

It’s something that’s been used everywhere it grows and has been consumed in one form or another since human presence entered the area. It’s debatable if marijuana actually does make you more creative or if it just “helps the flow” by taking down some walls…

Now, do you think reading Shakespeare’s works would be easier to read when one is high? Someone find out for me. I mean, it’s not like he’s a difficult read in the first place, but it’s written in a different style than we’re used to reading/speaking now.

Also: PERUVIAN cocaine.
Hah!
Talk about an expensive habit!
