LSD turns 75 today

While synthesizing LSD, Albert Hoffmann accidentally touched his hand to his mouth, nose or possibly eye, ingesting a small amount and discovered its powerful effects. He described what he felt as being:

„… affected by a remarkable restlessness, combined with a slight dizziness. At home I lay down and sank into a not unpleasant intoxicated[-]like condition, characterized by an extremely stimulated imagination. In a dreamlike state, with eyes closed (I found the daylight to be unpleasantly glaring), I perceived an uninterrupted stream of fantastic pictures, extraordinary shapes with intense, kaleidoscopic play of colors. After some two hours this condition faded away.“
