Well, I guess there is credible evidence Steve Jobs was quoted accurately
as noted in the subject heading.

Apparently, the Jobs' LSD quote in question came from interviews with Jobs
for Walter Isaacson's biography "Steve Jobs.":


The following website references that quote and others from Jobs about his
use of LSD.

Hard to believe that Jobs was interviewed by the Dept. of Defense and
discussed his use of LSD!  Truth stranger than fiction:


In John Markoff’s book, *What the Dormouse Said, *Jobs describes his
experiences with LSD as:

*“One of the two or three most important things I have done in my life”*

Jobs is also on record with the US Department of Defense as having admitted
to using LSD 10-15 times and describing the experiences as:

*“A positive life changing experience”*
Below is a whopper from the CNN Money website titled *"Can LSD Make You a
Billionaire?"* offering a series of videos, one titled "I took LSD with
Steve Jobs" focusing on the use of LSD in Silicon Valley:

Last night on Coast to Coast AM radio from good'ol  KOZE 950 AM radio from
Lewiston, Zoe Cormier was interviewed about her new book "Sex, Drugs and
Rock'n Roll: The Science of Hedonism."

Info at website below:


During the interview, it was mentioned that late Apple wizard Steve Jobs
had used LSD, that it was verified he stated the following, a quote I was
able to find at the following website:


“Taking LSD was a profound experience, one of the most important things in
my life... "

While there have been a number of significant people
in history who have uttered similar statements about their LSD experiences,
I remain skeptical that Steve Jobs actually made this statement: not
surprised that LSD can inspire a creative person in this manner, but that
he would let a fact such as this become public!

Given the vast intellectual and data mining resources of Vision2020,
perhaps someone can verify Steve Jobs' quote on this matter.
