Default Did LSD Change Britain?

This is an article about the pros (?) and cons of LSD. From BBC News Magazine
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/7377041.stm


Several of the comments mentioned Peter Green. I have excerpted them.

*LSD25 is a powerful tool. As an old 'acidhead' myself, I am convinced that it should be used in the treatment of certain mental ill health - and it's use in treating those dependant on alcohol showed it was the most effective treatment. Yes, there were some - like Peter Green - who seemed to suffer from its use. I believe they were already ill and LSD25 did not help, and may have amplified their ill health, but prescribed drugs do not have positive benefit for all users either.

*Consider the fate of Peter Green, founder of Fleetwood Mac. His experimentations with LSD resulted in quite stunning musical experimentation that formed the blueprint for hard rock and even dance music, but resulted in "never coming back" from the trips he took.

*Are we honestly suggesting that if someone hadn't taken LSD the idea of not putting additives in food and growing food naturally would never have been thought of? Taking LSD to change your thought processes isn't a very organic or natural approach now is it? LSD curtailed the careers of Peter Green, Syd Barrett and probably a good few other people whose brains never made it out of the sixties. Sounds like if you are lucky the pattern on your curtains swirls about a bit, and if you are unlucky you spend the rest of your life as a child. I'll give it a miss thanks.
