but I might look to park next to a tree or something if that makes a difference
I try to avoid parking too near trees in car parks - once had a branch fall on the car...
The co-founder and CEO of Iterable, a San Francisco marketing tech biz valued at over $2bn, claims he was fired after admitting to micro-dosing LSD at work. Justin Zhu, a Twitter alum, founded his upstart with former Google Adsense veteran Andrew Boni in 2013 and built it into a company employing more than 400 staff with a …
"I don't advocate the use of LSD at all but I do think it has it's merits and probably needs some proper research."
I'm pretty sure the US government, especially the CIA, did some serious long term testing of LSD and various other drugs of that type. There doesn't seem to be any public recommended uses for any of them coming from official circles.

CEOs are hugely expensive – why not automate them?
If a single role is as expensive as thousands of workers, it is surely the prime candidate for robot-induced redundancy.
I went to college in the early 70s and my friends and I experimented with a number of illegal drugs. I didn't continue but some of my friends did. My current drugs of choice are caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol (coffee,cigars, and wine with an occasional Islay malt).
In my experience, it boils down to dosage. Large doses of LSD can mess you up but so can large doses of Tequila.
Lessons learned from this.
1) don't admit to it.
2) don't do if in management meetings.
3) remember that venture capitalism are interested in your company, not you.
Your post could equally well be entitled ..... Timothy Leary's Not Dead
And aint that the gospel truth!
IT certainly makes life interesting ....... all this mind-bending and thought-expanding small talk stuff...... and does reveal a massive postmodern and ancient treasure trove of abiding weaknesses and novel vulnerabilities to explore and exploit, enjoy and employ ...... and to offer to markets for capitalisation/fiat valuation of perceived worth, future strength, power and energy.
And aint that the gospel truth too ‽ . :-)
And, probably even more importantly and lucratively and possibly also disruptively ...... export and introduce to leaderships and administering executives in foreign lands and alien territories too, which makes IT something of an obscure and ominous and stealthy weapon to wield wisely.
If I'm reading this right, they only fired him because he 'fessed up. Employee handbook aside, if he didn't do anything ELSE to warrant firing (did his productivity plummet? did he assault co-workers? how DID that dosed meeting go, by the way?), this sounds kinda' petty and worthy of a Stern Talking To, not a full-blown firing. Is there more to the story that I missed?
