In your opinion, is there a connection between creativity and psychoactive substances? Do you think creative people are more prone to drugs? Or perhaps you think drugs enhance creativity? Maybe you think psychoactive substances decrease one's creativity and prevent him from reaching his full potential? Do you think that artists who created some magnificent masterpieces under the influence of drugs would be able to produce something with the same artistic value without ever using them? Overall, I'd like to know what do you think about this topic.
lf you set out for a destination, and along the road you keep stopping to toss stones at every dog that barks at you, you will never reach your destination.

Creativity has nothing to do with drugs
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

In certain environments, drugs can spur (or unlock) creativity. I can only speak from personal experience though.
