USA: CEO Of $2 Billion Startup Fired From His Own Company After Experimenting With LSD At Work

Forbes reports..

The co-founder and chief executive of the multi-billion dollar marketing startup Iterable says he was ousted from the company after micro-dosing on LSD in the workplace, a controversial but not uncommon trend in the entrepreneurial enclave of Silicon Valley.

Iterable notified employees Monday that the company’s board had dismissed Justin Zhu, an alumnus of Google and Twitter who co-founded the $2 million San Francisco-based startup along with Andrew Boni in 2013.

While the message to employees cited unspecified violations of company policy, Zhu told Bloomberg he was ousted for taking LSD, a drug that is still illegal in the U.S., before a meeting in 2019.

The former chief executive said he was experimenting with micro-dosing (taking a low dosage of the drug) to boost his focus.

Zhu has been replaced as chief executive by Boni, who wrote in an email to staff that his co-founder’s behavior “undermined the board’s confidence in Justin’s ability to lead the company going forward.”

A spokesperson for Iterable did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
