Reviews and Impressions from the
2006 LSD Symposium
Basel, Switzerland
Submitted by Conference Attendees
Jan 2006

The LSD Symposium "Problem Child and Wonder Drug", held in Basel Switzerland January 13th-15th, 2006 was an enormous success. It was held on the occasion of the 100th birthday of Albert Hofmann, the man who first synthesized and ingested LSD. There were over 2,000 total attendees, dozens of speakers (including Albert Hofmann) and a strong showing from the world press.

Erowid participated in the conference as a patron and media partner. Earth and Fire gave a talk on Saturday titled "Current Views of Acid: What do LSD Users Say?" in which they presented the results of a series of surveys they conducted on the website asking questions about people's use and views of LSD.

We are hoping to provide a space for people to share their experiences from the symposium with those who were unable to attend. If you attended the conference and have photos, recordings, comments, or conference reviews you'd like to share, please consider submitting them here. We will be putting together a public archive of the event from these submissions.
