What is LSD?
LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide), first synthesized in 1938, an extremely potent hallucinogen. So synthetically made from lysergic acid, which found in ergot, a fungus that grows on rye and other grains.
LSD is usually found on the streets in various forms, for example:
blotter paper (LSD soaked onto sheets of absorbent paper with colorful designs; cut into small, individual dosage units) – the most common form.
thin squares of gelatin (commonly referred to as window panes)
tablet form (usually small tablets known as Microdots) or capsules
liquid on sugar cubes
pure liquid form (may be extremely potent)
Some people may inhale LSD through the nose (snort) or inject it into a vein (shoot it up). There is no way to predict the amount of LSD that might be in any form you consume.
Other hallucinogens include:
Psilocybin (Magic Mushrooms, Shrooms)
Mescaline (Peyote, Buttons, Cactus)
Phencyclidine (PCP, Angel Dust)
