    MERGED: Father of LSD Celebrating 100th Birthday

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060110/...DltBHNlYwM3MTY-

    GENEVA - LSD is an unlikely subject for a 100th birthday party. Yet the Swiss chemist who discovered the mind-altering drug and was its first human guinea pig is celebrating his centenary Wednesday — in good health and with plans to attend an international seminar on the hallucinogenic.

    "I had wonderful visions," Albert Hofmann said, recalling his first accidental consumption of the drug.

    "I sat down at home on the divan and started to dream," he told the Swiss television network SF DRS. "What I was thinking appeared in colors and in pictures. It lasted for a couple of hours and then it disappeared."

    Hofmann, who also had bad experiences with the drug, continues to insist it should be legalized for medical treatment, particularly in psychiatric research. But LSD's reputation has been as turbulent as some acid trips.

    The drug earned a bad reputation amid fatalities associated with hallucinations and reports of "flashbacks" — the recurrence of hallucinations when not taking the drug.

    LSD inspired the 1960s hippy generation and was immortalized in the Beatles' hit "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," although the band denied any connection. But it was also known as Like Swift Dead.

    For decades after LSD was banned in the late 1960s, Hofmann defended his invention.

    "I produced the substance as a medicine," he said. "It's not my fault if people abused it..."

    At a television studio in Hollywood on Monday night, Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor was doing the fox trot. He probably was wearing makeup, too.
    About an hour south down Interstate 5, quarterback John Beck was on the verge of lining up his chicken nuggets in a shotgun formation.

    {sigh...}


    I miss the 70's. Much wider range of drugs to choose from. And few of them caused deformities of the brain or any other permanent damage.

    I fully expect the next "designer" drug to actually make people explode from their **** like a human bottle rocket.

    Last time I did that stuff it was at a rave along with some ecxtasy long long ago. That was called a candy flip to some but to my crew it was called A&E. That was time well spent.
