Steve Jobs: How Marijuana Helped Upload The World


For many of us, Steve Jobs is synonymous with genius and inspiration. Jobs was the legendary co-founder & CEO of Apple since 1997. He was recognized as among the most insightful, brilliant, prosperous genius’ in technological history. Over the years, he’s not only modified our way of life with ground breaking products, but also with memorable ideas & phrases.

When Steve Jobs was required to apply for top-secret security clearance in the late 1980’s, there were some details of his personal life that were unveiled after the smoke settled…

When the smoke cleared, based on Department of Defense documents attained by Wired through a Freedom of Information Act request — In a 1998 interview with government officials, Jobs discussed his marijuana use. This was later confirmed in news stories & in a biography by Walter Isaacson which was released after the Apple mogul’s death in 2011. Contained within the top-secret Pentagon file, it delves into his marijuana and hashish use during the late 1970’s. Jobs, who passed away last October following a long fight with cancer said, “The best way I could describe the effect of the marijuana and hashish is that it would make me relaxed and creative.”

Steve Jobs will leave a legacy behind – A world renowned brand, many of adoring fans, a template to create success, wisdom imparted to the world…just to name a few.

The Apple envisionary once said in a Stanford commencement speech, “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”

Apple was lucky to have such a wise man at their helm, even for such a brief time. One thing still haunts my dreams, if only Jobs was still around — “Apple presents the I-Bong.” Jobs did say be optimistic and trust your gut.

    Man do I ever agree. Medication is so much more extremely high in THC is everywhere. Thus asking why all States do ot have it yet. I have very much pain I have been living with for 7-8 yrs now. I do not take pain killers simply because none of them actually stopped my pain. Medical Marijuana is the best medication for my pain.

  3. Steve Jobs was no “visionary man”, and had no bright idea whatsoever. He was not technologically advanced either. He died and left behind what’s now known as one of the most expensive computer hardware/software suppliers in the world. Tell me … I guess his drug use didn’t make him creative enough to sell ordinary hardware at affordable prices.

    You can read how Steve Jobs was and will always be a loser here:

  4. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
