There is evidence to suggest that van Gogh was a frequent 420 user during his lifetime. In a letter to his brother Theo, van Gogh wrote, "Well, I am not in the least crazy, but it is true that I am not entirely normal either. I am very much on edge, I find it difficult to keep my balance, and I have taken up smoking as a means of calming my nerves."
In a letter to his friend Paul Gauguin, van Gogh wrote, "I am working on a portrait of the people at the brothel, and in the evening I smoke a pipe of hashish. The effect is to make the colors more brilliant." Here, Van Gogh seems to be suggesting that cannabis helped him to see the world in a more vibrant and colorful way, which may have influenced the way he depicted it in his paintings.
