The Truth about LSD and Hallucinogens (Drugs & Consequences #6) (Library Binding)
LSD has had a colorful history, to say the least. First developed for medical purposes, it was soon adopted by mental health therapists and spiritual seekers. Experimented with by both the military and the CIA, the drug was eventually adopted by hippies seeking to "turn on, tune in, and drop out." LSD and other hallucinogens have since become a staple of party and club culture. This colorful history, however, belies the very real dangers and destructiveness of drugs that lure many teens into drug abuse, mental illness, physical peril, and dangerous interference with normal brain chemistry. Readers will be confronted with the cold hard facts about these drugs and the devastation they wreak, rather than the sunny pop culture fantasy so often associated with hallucinogens.
