"Acid" is lysergic acid diethylamide, usually the variant "25", which is derived from naturally occurring mold called 'ergot' on the grain rye. CIA experiments dating from the 1950s have demonstrated quite thoroughly that the use of LSD-25 (or many of its variants) can induce either pleasant hallucinations or a marked state of paranoia, or some gradation in between. Chemically impure LSD-25 is EXTREMELY dangerous and has been proven to be fatal many times, perhaps most infamously at the Woodstock concert, where even the PA announcers repeated the message "Don't eat the brown acid!" (one possible preparation)
Hope this is of some use to you, easily verified by any competent chemist, and FReegards!
Why can’t folks just drink beer?
I’m not proud of it but I have tried a few of these bath salts in the past. I’ve read the horror stories of people losing control and acting violent. While they may be chemically similar to meth,the high is nothing like it.
It’s more like ecstasy,all you really do is sit there smoking cigarettes and watching you-tube videos.
It does eliminate the need to sleep and eat, so maybe the people who lose their minds on the stuff have been up doing it for days or mixing it with other narcotics.
But I do know some people react differently to drugs.
I think a lot of the publicity it has gotten is similar to the LSD propaganda in the 60’s/70’s,e.g staring at the sun till blind,babysitters putting babies in the oven
