On an acid trip

Lysergic acid diethylamide or LSD for those who take it is an experimental drug which was adopted by the American pop-culture in the 1960s as an alternative to alcohol. After incorrectly interpreting ancient Vedic texts instructing them to pick mushrooms, hippies and rock stars everywhere became addicts of a class A semisynthetic psychedelic drug.

In the late 1960s, Timothy Leary decried LSD as "A menace to society", and called for its outlaw, but it was not until Bob Dylan released his 10th album in 1970 that LSD was finally made illegal in the public domain.
