[CITATION NEEDED!]

I declare total BS on this. Name one single case where the LSD drug itself caused the death and not a death by falling of a cliff or playing in traffic while on LSD.
No wonder our drug laws are so Draconian. Its all based on lies and misinformation.

There have been a couple deaths reported involving doses of LSD well in excess of 20mg. (More than a book's worth.)

William Shakesbeer: notauniquesnowflake: Does anybody else remember being told in highschool that you could die the first time you took Ecstasy from overhydration? They told my highschool health ed class that Ecstasy gives you a "false sense of thirst" and you keep drinking until you drink yourself into an overhydration coma and die.

Anyone know if this is true? Anyone else told this as a teen?

Verdelak: BlorfMaster: I once knew a kid who took LSD, and it screwed up his mind forever because he thought he was an Orange, and he would not let anyone touch him because he thought he would turn into orange juice. So he spent the rest of his days screaming 'im an orange!' while locked up in a mental hospital.

True story.

As a kid, my dad told me that story, but swore he went to school with the guy.

Not long after that, I met a guy whom my dad did grow up with and who did do a ton of drugs. He was brilliant in his youth and just totally burned himself out. He was sad to see. He made a much better anti-drug story than the fake one my dad tried to influence me with.


Was there proof that this cat was brilliant or did your dad lie to you twice?

Shrooms don't kill people, people kill people.

The only way shrooms are going to kill you is if you get all boomed out, and decide it's a good idea to piss off a building and your tip-toes are hanging over the edge as you sway back and forth.

"The lethal dose of LSD has been estimated to be 14,000 mcg"
"According to the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the strength of samples obtained from illicit sources ranges from 20-80 mcg of LSD per dose."

Ok fine. So ya if you eat 175 hits you might die. How is that even comparable to the quote from the article that says you can just die from taking it once? Drink 175 glasses of water at once and tell me how you fair.

I should have quoted the whole thing from that source in my Weeners..
"Mortality/Morbidity

Deaths caused by primary LSD effects have not been well documented. The lethal dose of LSD has been estimated to be 14,000 mcg. Few cases of massive ingestions have been reported; because of its large index of toxicity, patients must have access to unusually concentrated forms of LSD if they are to overdose. Massive overdoses can lead to respiratory arrest, coma, emesis, hyperthermia, autonomic instability, and bleeding disorders. No suicide attempts using LSD intoxication have been reported."


Sounds like LSD is saver then aspirin to me.

That's another one of those "drug urban legends," albeit with a twist, it's usually "if you take more than x hits you are legally insane." X was usually 5 when I heard it.

Nothing encouraged my youthful drug use as much as the discovery that all the anti-drug propaganda was full of shiat.

On one side: a man in uniform who tells me how pot, shrooms and LSD will kill me.
On the other side: Friendly hippie classmates who tell me how beautiful it all is.

I try pot and discover that the uniform lied and the hippies were truthful. I tried every drug I could after that.

In the case presented by the article, I would say that LSD enabled the behavior that caused death and not the drug itself. Several antidepressants have the same effect.

175 glasses of water? That's almost 11 gallons, I'll be taking a lot of trips to empty the bladder and puking it out before I ever got that much water drank. Bad analogy? I think so, yet I see your point.

Awesome, lets play.

I've had a few that devolved into a self-reinforcing spiral of shame / pain / depression, which I guess qualifies as bad. Nothing quite to the magnitude of Samurai Lincoln attempting to kill me and stuff my head full of parsley, though.

Depends on what you call a "good trip." Salvia extract (I didn't get much from the leaves alone) can kick you in the mental nuts almost immediately, and send you to an alternate universe that may or may not be pleasant. It's the heaviest trip I've ever experienced - more so than shrooms or acid. I don't recommend it as I couldn't classify it as "fun," but whoo boy...it will twist you up good for a few minutes that seems like hours. Make sure you have someone with you who isn't doing it because you'll go "blind" for a period of time with the visuals, and want to walk around in them.
