The late Dr. Carl Sagan, cosmologist, author, philosopher, humanitarian… and cannabis user.

“The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world.”

Dr. Carl Sagan wrote an essay, including this quote, in 1969 for publication in Dr. Lester Grinspoon’s great book, Marihuana Reconsidered (1971).

Sagan was in his mid-30s at the time. He continued to use cannabis for the rest of his life.
