  • Inside: LSD
    LSDs inventor Albert Hofman called it "medicine for the soul." The Beatles wrote songs about it. Secret military mind control experiments sought to exploit its hallucinogenic powers. Outlawed in 1966, LSD became a street drug and developed a reputation as the dangerous toy of the counterculture, capable of inspiring either moments of genius, or a descent into madness. Now science is taking a fresh look at LSD, including the first human trials in over 35 years. Using enhanced brain imaging, nonhallucinogenic versions of the drug and information from an underground network of test subjects who suffer from an agonizing condition for which there is no cure, researchers are finding that this trippy drug could become the pharmaceutical of the future. Fifty years ago, psychedelics like LSD were considered the cutting edge of science. After decades of controversy, LSD is being reconsidered by the research community - to enhance brainpower, expand our creativity and even cure disease.
