The RBC editorial office reported that Roskomnadzor demanded that they remove the retelling of the American Wall Street Journal material about the use of drugs and psychedelics by employees of companies from Silicon Valley.

The news appeared on the RBC feed on the night of June 28 – in 03:00 Moscow time Journalists reported about the claims of the department half a day later – at about 16:00 Moscow time. According to the oversight agency, the retelling contained “information aimed at positive attitudes and justification for the use of drugs.”

Journalists complied with the requirements. A copy of the deleted article is now available on the web archive.

The WSJ newspaper wrote in its material, citing sources, that the head of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk, uses ketamine, and Google co-founder Sergey Brin uses hallucinogenic mushrooms. Startup BuildBetter.ai director Spencer Schul talked about using LSD “to increase focus and awaken more creative thinking.” The publication also described parties in Silicon Valley, where guests use drugs and psychedelics.
