Although everything about Apple is well kept under secret, it seems that the news about the former Apple CEO and his experience with recreational drugs is not Top Secret anymore.
Previous rumors have argued that the biopic would refer to the period from his early life to his last years when he struggled to defeat his disease. It’s stated that recently a government security questionnaire filled in 1988 was made was public revealing that Steve Jobs took LSD up to 15 times between 1972 and 1974. He was interviewed by the Department of Defense officials, claiming that he had “no words” to express the feeling that he had encountered while being under the effect of drugs. The files were handed to Wired under Freedom of Information laws.
’It was a positive life changing experience for me and I am glad I went through that experience’.
Documents also highlight the fact that Jobs was not also keen on LSD but also on marijuana and hashish; he even ate it cooked into chocolate brownies. Once or twice a week he would spend quality time with himself under the effect of these drugs that stimulated his creativity between 1973 and 1977.
„The best way I would describe the effect of the marijuana and the hashish is that it would make me relaxed and creative”
For the Pentagon interviewers he claimed that he never used illegal drugs or misused prescription drugs and that he used it for him or his friends and not distribute it in any way.
The movie will also integrate Apple’s existence from 1971 to 2000, namely his presence of Steve as full time CEO of Apple for the second time.
„Pirates of Silicon Valley” that has the main character Steve Jobs also comes with a scene that denotes his experience with LSD.
