Just a reminder...
Back in those days Sid was consuming acid that was very high quality.
We're not talking that nasty ass barrel bunk they called acid.
Oh how I miss the Sunshine Family days when a whole hit would take you to the bold psychedelia land and telephone poles would be bending in the wind while driving down the road.
Real Hippie trip land.
Which begs the question "where are all the other acid casualties?" Does correlation equal causation, or does correlation equal a great basis for a FUD campaign? Nobody really knows because until very recently there have been no peer reviewed studies on the matter.
I wouldn't dismiss the power of these things outright, as the OP of another thread said, 'respect the magic'.
I agree. It just seems dubious to me that psychedelics can be the sole cause of a peaceful, healthy mind breaking down. After a single hero's dose my brain screams "no more!". But once again, just meaningless speculations from an interested layman based on personal anecdote. I mean, my avatar, my sig, who am I to criticize the acid casualty archetype?
