Did you know that one in five Americans has not taken LSD? Neither did I, but in all honesty I made that up. I think more people should take some acid and knock their over inflated ego out for a few hours.
LSD, Lysergic acid diethylamide or better known as ACID was synthesized by the Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann, in 1938. The LSD effect is described as a ‘trip’ because it is a long (8-12 hours) and powerful experience , sometimes quite boring, which takes you beyond normal perception and senses then back again. It takes about half an hour to kick in, and if made by ghetto idiots, will taste awful, and is more than like DOM/STP and you have been tricked. The first signs of being high are a sense of euphoria and expectation, along with tingling along your body. Your pupils will dilate and your body will temperature rise, and you might feel kind of sick, don’t eat a bucket of KFC and wash it down with gravy and Pepsi before hand, or you’ll be sorry, trust me.

“… little by little I could begin to enjoy the unprecedented colors and plays of shapes that persisted behind my closed eyes. Kaleidoscopic, fantastic images surged in on me, alternating, variegated, opening and then closing themselves in circles and spirals, exploding in colored fountains, rearranging and hybridizing themselves in constant flux …” –Albert Hofmann after the first acid trip, and is now celebrated as bicycle day.

The peak high lasts from two to eight hours. A clear effect is rich visual hallucinations. Colors seem more vibrant, sometimes they smell or taste. Surfaces may ripple, shimmer, shake and wave. You may notice tiny details on objects, like a stucco ceiling or the hair on your arms. Music sounds better (subjective) and louder. You might be very uncoordinated and feeling dizzy. At the same time, you may feel blissful, have flashes of insight into yourself or the world, experience severe time-distortion, or feel yourself dissolving or see objects merging into one another.
A bad trip occurs when the euphoria of an LSD trip changes into something more sinister and frightening. It can be triggered by a threatening or adverse environment, the surfacing of difficult unconscious memories or material, a sense of being overwhelmed by the power of the drug and by attempting to resist its effects, or by problems between you and anyone you may be sharing the experience with. People hostile to LSD are more likely to have bad trips. They start small and can snowball into anxiety, fear, paranoia, and paralysis. People experiencing a bad trip may appear withdrawn and silent or visibly upset, scared or wild. They may curl up into fetal position.You may feel like you are going insane, or losing control or dying. You may get caught in circular thoughts, like a hall of mirrors. The anxiety may trigger breathlessness or even a full-blown panic attack. This happens to the weak minded individuals that have been brainwashed into thinking they’ll more than likely have a bad trip. I’ve never had a bad trip, just bad experiences. But in life with all bad experiences, you just need to pull yourself together and not let it ruin your day. In the few hundred, maybe even thousand times I have done acid over the past seventeen years, I have never once had a bad trip. No spiders on my arms, no thinking I can fly, no putting babies in the microwave, no trying to catch a car. None of it. I think some people just want attention really badly, and these are the kind of delusional depressant people that really shouldn’t be taking mind altering drugs. Just like the narcissistic jock that was beaten by his father every day after school really shouldn’t be taking steroids. Food for thought people.
I drew this snake in Flash using a Wacom Tablet when I was high as fuck on five tabs of Acid. It looked really bad ass at the time. I knew it looked like shit, but I was really proud of it. Hell I’m still proud of my Acid Snake. He kicks ass! Sure it’s no Picasso (or is it?) but he was slowly poising himself with lead paint, and had all kinds of psychological issues. Moron. That’s all I got left as far as dropping some ‘cid goes, I highly recommend everybody does it at least once, maybe it will change you or maybe it will leave you with a gnarly hangover and feeling foolish. Check it out and get back to me. Maybe draw your own Acid Snake.

Some Good Acid: ★★★★★★★★★★
