Abstract
Lysergic acid diethylamide LSD is one of several hallucinogens which have lately become prominent as therapeutic agents and as psychedelic drugs. LSD is similar in its main effects to drugs such as mescaline found in peyote cactus, harmine in vines, bufotenine in mushrooms, and the more recently developed synthetics such as psilocybin and dimethyltrypamine. Of these, LSD is the most frequently used for scientific and therapeutic investigations. It is also the most popular of the hallucinogens used for 'kicks', self-exploration, or religo-philosophic experiences by college students and other members of the intelligentisa.
