Aaron Rodgers says using psychedelics has helped him win recent MVPs

Former Cal quarterback Aaron Rodgers grew up in Chico, Calif., and plays professional football in Green Bay, Wis., but it seems some of Berkeley’s experimental culture may have rubbed off on him on the basis of his recent revelation.

Rodgers revealed in a podcast this week that his experience with the herbal psychedelic drug ayahuasca in Peru helped him to his best seasons in the NFL, which culminated in MVP awards in 2020 and 2021.

“I don’t think it’s a coincidence,” Rodgers said on the Aubrey Marcus podcast on Wednesday. “I really don’t believe. I don’t really believe in coincidences at this point. It’s the universe that makes things happen when they’re supposed to happen.”
