I'm completely with Serial-Thrilla on this. LSD is not acid in the sense that you're using it, IAMSAM. Yes, it stands for d-Lysergic Acid Diethylamide, but if you had a 10th grade knowledge of chemistry, you'd know that just because a compound is an acid, it can't necessarily BURN anything.
And what you call "mucking up the natural order of things" in your brain is what other people call "a religious experience." I've used my fair share of psychedelic drugs, and I maintain a good GPA, I'm not addicted to drugs, I'm not overweight, and I'm not a flat-out idiot. So, what have the drugs done to harm me?
and the following is for heartagram72: "the government makes propaganda bout it cuz so many ppl do it." The government will make propaganda about whatever they want to demonize. If you're smart, you'll do your own thinking, and not automatically take what the government says to be truth.
