Albert Hoffman, Inventor of LSD dies at 102
Albert Hofmann, who died on April 29 aged 102, synthesised lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) in 1938 and became the first person in the world to experience a full-blown "acid trip" – that was on April 19 1943, which became known among aficionados as "Bicycle Day" as it was while cycling home from his laboratory that he experienced the most intense symptoms.

His contribution will hopefully be seen in full some day. Lsd, psilocybin, mdma, dmt, and other hallucinogens hold much more potential for good than was ever scratched by the 60s.

The things that make you have "visions" are illegal because they don't want us to know our true mental capabilities. These things are a door to the other side.

There are no true health hazards from them. Only benefits in opening your true brain capabilities.

He was not the inventor, just accidentally discovered it and developed it.

It is most likely LSD that the Salem witches were ingesting from diseased rye that caused them to have their "fits."

That would not have been LSD, but some other naturally occurring ergot alkaloid derived from lysergic acid.

Have you read his autobiography? Not spreading falsehoods.

Yes you are correct. Ergot on the rye, which is the naturally occurring form of LSD. LSD is the synthesized version. I am well versed in these things.

In lay terms though, for most people it is OK to say that the "natural occurring form of LSD" is what the "witches" consumed. God forbid I used the scientific name. Especially since it is the ergot on rye that Hoffman discovered it on.......

There is no real LSD available in the US right now and there has not been for over a decade. Very few chemists actually know how to make it and most of them are in jail or dead.

If someone sells you "LSD" these days you are just getting a bunch of research chemicals. No idea what you are getting or what will happen to you. I would just say no.

As cat said, there are better natural alternatives.

I'm sorry to come off as nit picking - my analytical side showing chuckle

It's just that I strongly differentiate between rumor/story/legend that is not so above or below in any way.

I do look for metaphysical crytography in everything, but in a man-made substance told to be found in nature, no I will never jest or accept so in due part. Sometimes I speak up and sometimes I don't, and I try to not read into nor control such things too much.

No argument, here, friend - those who get it, get it :)

Technically, it would be the ones who realized they can fly, but stopped mid-stream to have the thought that what they were doing was impossible before grounding themselves.
