LSD: Trip To Hell? reveals the medical powers of this controversial drug.

LSD's inventor Albert Hofman called it "medicine for the soul." The Beatles wrote songs about it. Secret military mind control experiments sought to exploit its hallucinogenic powers. Outlawed in 1966, LSD became a street drug and developed a reputation as the dangerous toy of the counterculture, capable of inspiring either moments of genius, or a descent into madness.

Now science is taking a fresh look at LSD including the first human trials in over 35 years, researchers are finding that this trippy drug could become the pharmaceutical of the future.

LSD: Trip to Hell? reveals if this controversial drug can enhance brainpower, expand our creativity and even cure disease.

Beloved by The Beatles and central to the 1960s counterculture, modern scientists are re-examining the potential medicinal benefits of LSD.

Thank you for that post. We all need a reminder now and then. I guess you could say, "you took the words right out of my mouth".  Except I couldn't find the right words.

I am never too old to learn. I have two ears and one mouth. I will endeavor to play the odds.

Peace in the valley. Like mama used to tell me: if you don't have anything nice to say keep your damn mouth shut...or something like that ;D
