The post about marijuana being portrayed positively in the media got me thinking about the common notion about marijuana and "creativity." If you say something bad about marijuana publicly, people are quick to argue for marijuana being a "good" thing because they think that it influenced a lot of people creatively. I've heard people say that everyone from The Beatles, Dr. Suess, Bob Marley, etc were "inspired" while under the influence of marijuana and went on to produce great creative works. But maybe this is just the simple logical fallacy of confusing correlation with causation. Perhaps this people were creative and great IN SPITE of using marijuana, rather than because of it. Just because someone was a product of their time and used it, doesn't mean that using it was the cause of them becoming great. What do you think is the best way to correct the misconception about marijuana once and for all?
