What is LSD?
lysergic acid diethylamide. LSD was discovered in 1938. It is manufactured from ergot, a fungus that grows on rye.
nited States scientists began experimenting with LSD in 1949, at first with animals. In the 1950's, human experiments began. At that time, human experimentation was much less regulated than it is today, so the drug was tested widely. LSD inhibits the movement of serotonin in the brain, which influences mood.
LSD seems to work in the cerebral cortexof the brain, which is involved in mood, thought, and perception, and in the locus ceruleus of the brain, which coordinates sensory perceptions. The LSD experience is usually called a "trip." A frightening or sickening experience is called a "bad trip." Most LSD trips last between six and twelve hours.
he United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) also conducted LSD experiments during this period, presumably in hopes of generating some military use for the drug.
LSD dissolves in water and is odorless, colorless, and tasteless. A dose the size of a grain of salt can cause effects.
LSD was tried as a treatment for alcoholism, schizophrenia, depression, narcotics addictions, sexual dysfunction, and criminal behavior.
Had no positive effect on any of these conditions. On the contrary LSD seemed to cause or aggravgate personality disorders. Dr. Albert Hofmann, a Swiss chemist looking for a new headache treatment, first produced LSD in 1938. He first developed lysergic acid, a derivative of ergot, a fungus that grows on the rye plant. The dose necessary to produce intense hallucinations in an average adult male is about 50 micrograms.

LSD is less expensive than other "rave" drugs, such as Ecstasy, which may have led to its renewed popularity.
1943, Dr. Hofmann decided to do some further testing with LSD. He accidentally ingested a small amount of the drug, and was thrust into a hallucinogenic experience. A few days later, he tried to duplicate the experience by taking what he thought was a small amount of the drug, 250 micrograms.
