Has any major mathematical feat been enabled by LSD or Other Drug?

Savants solve difficult problems easily with a Flash of inspiration. You don’t hear about these people now but, are there attempts, using drugs, to bring this Flash to the masses?

    The acknowledged master of pure mathematics, Paul Erdős (1913 - 1996)  called amphetamine sulphate 'life', and did all his work after taking it.

    Apparently LSD was instrumental in designing computers

    Note: that does not mean that doing LSD makes you smart. It just means that some things that people have in their brain already can be "unlocked" by it

    Drugs to not make your brain work better. They just make you think it is working amazingly well when the lights and colours start flashing, as your brain cells die.  

    Actual thinking is better without drugs.
