A test was carried out on the effects of LSD on the army to see if it made them more aggressive.

A quote from this serious information film...

'But one hour and ten minutes after taking the drug, with one man climbing a tree to feed the birds, the troop commander gave up, admitting he could not control his men. He himself then collapsed into laughter...' http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Only one question... Did they volunteer for this experiment or were they "slipped a Mickey" like the U.S. Soldiers were?

how much you wanna bet that the Sgt. Pepper's album was very popular with the troops after their training exercise

Albert Hofmann, the discoverer (creator, inventor?) of LSD, recently turned 100years old. God bless him.

LSD (http://www.lsd.info/)

The Bear (http://www.thebear.org/essays.html)

My LSD days are over,,, it can be very very funny stuff. It can also be horrific. A bad trip is,, well,, bad..

Lot of people ended up in hospital with long term probs after using LSD. Still this is nothing compared to the ammount of people who end up in a "loony bin" after "puffing" for a long time.

Enjoy...?

Thats always good for a chuckle. I wish someone would have filmed our 'Class of 81' field trip to Cahokia Mound outside of East St. Louis.

Kid named Ronnie M. said he could see his house from the top (80+ miles away) and decided to run home. What a day.

Drugs are bad m'kay. Its pretty disgusting to see the health and mental wellbeing of soldiers risked for nothing really.

Stupid as this may sound when I served in Germany it was one of the most worrying weapons in the build up to a state of war....... the scenario they were worried about was German subversives of the Warsaw Pact introducing the likes of LSD into the mains water supply.... you would then have the problem of 1/2 of the station possibly falling under the effects of drugs whilst being Live Armed and the associated problems of trying to disarm them. On top of that not only did it destroy the effectiveness of the base it tied up manpower guarding the victims unil they recovered.......

Remember in war the aim is not to kill your enemy but to simply wound them, killing them is game over.... wounding the poor suckers ties up 3 to 4 people in the care of them.......... and hence depletes your effective strength even more.
