Here are some interesting links I have found about LSD; Owsley Stanley, who manufactured massive quantities of high-quality LSD in the 1960’s; and other LSD items:
– SF Gate 2007 article on Owsley.
– Interview with Owsley from around 1997.
– Owsley’s apparent website.
– The Dead’s sound system, which Owsley apparently heavily influenced.
– Owsley purportedly being interviewed in 1994 on Australian radio.
– YouTube clip on LSD and Owsley.
– Owsley’s enamel artwork.
– Owsley on the Bear image.
– Owsley is convinced that meat-eating keeps him healthy. I am convinced that vegan-eating keeps me and “food animals” healthy.
– Albert Hofmann on LSD and alternative realities.
– Ken Kesey talks about acid tests.
– Allen Ginsburg on LSD’s origins.
– Timothy Leary on LSD.
– Ram Dass/born Richard Alpert speaks about LSD, and about fierce grace.
