    A school custodian has sued the Fair Lawn Board of Education, claiming his co-workers attempted to poison him at an office party by lacing his pizza with hallucinogenic drugs. Dominick A. Rao, a custodian in the district since 2000, said he was often bullied by his supervisor and co-workers because he has bilateral ocular albinism, a condition in which the eyes lack pigment. Rao's disability causes reduced vision of 20/200. According to the lawsuit, filed in Superior Court in Hackensack, Rao accuses his fellow custodians of "poisoning" his food with small quantities of the hallucinogen LSD. He claims this occurred...

  • The Acid Guru’s Long, Strange Trip (review of Timothy Leary biography)

    The American Conservative ^ | November 6, 2006 | Jesse Walker
    In September 1970, the Weather Underground helped Timothy Leary escape from a federal prison. It wasn’t a natural alliance. Leary was a hippie icon, but he usually kept the Left at arm’s length, preferring psychedelic spirituality to armed revolution. The Weathermen, meanwhile, came from the most Stalinist recesses of the New Left. Their heroes included Kim Il Sung and Mao Zedong, and their methods were aimed less at blowing people’s minds than at blowing people up. Nonetheless, Leary played his new role with gusto, issuing a “P.O.W. Statement” that reads like a parody of revolutionary rhetoric. “Brothers and Sisters,” he...
  • LSD suggested as cure for alcoholism

    (10/16/06) - Imagine this. You are hooked on alcohol and you want help getting off the booze. You go to your doctor, and he or she says, "Drop some acid." That's right. LSD, the infamous drug of choice for many hippies in the 1960s and '70s. Lysergic acid diethylamide, the drug that caused hallucinations or "tripping," was, of course, outlawed, giving it immeasurable street cred in its time, before fading away as flower-painted bodies grew into gray-flannel suits. So, in the 21st century, why would a respected medical doctor even consider prescribing LSD as a wonder drug to help cure...

    A counter-culture arts festival which champions alternative living is being vetted by environmentalists for its contribution to global warming. Burning Man bans the sale of anything but ice and coffee and declares clothing optional. The festival, which is expected to draw nearly 40,000 people to the Nevada desert this week, is described as an "experiment in temporary community dedicated to radical self-expression and radical self-reliance". It has few rules, no structure and features performances, installation art and music, which culminate in the symbolic burning of a large wooden man. A group of San Francisco scientists, calling themselves Cooling Man, have...

    With the youthful good looks of a dissolute poet, Syd Barrett was the poster boy for British psychedelia during the 1960s. Barrett named Pink Floyd, was the band's lead singer/guitarist, and wrote most of its early material, including the first singles, Arnold Layne and See Emily Play, and all but one track on its debut album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn. Released in August 1967, the album fused disorienting lyrics with guitar freak-outs and tagged the 21-year-old Barrett as a musical visionary. Yet, while Barrett died last Friday aged 60, his dream died three decades ago. It has...

    As many as nine LSD-laced candies disappeared during a gathering at a Northwest Austin apartment and, about an hour later, a 3-year-old boy was hallucinating, crying as he grasped at the air, police said.

His mother, 22-year-old Ashli Rene Freas, faces a state jail felony charge of abandoning or endangering a child after the incident Sunday. Police arrested Freas late Sunday outside her Cedar Park apartment on Cypress Creek Road, saying she took her child to an...

    There is nothing, it seems, that European women would rather spend a great deal of money on than getting away from it all at a spa or health farm and as correspondent Caroline Wyatt discovers, the bill is often as painful as the rather intrusive treatments. The brochure had a photo of a luxurious hotel, and all the buzzwords: revitalising, rejuvenating. A detox. Well, I was not sure about a de tox. I like to tox, and I think my liver and kidneys do an admirable job, considering the challenges. Apparently, the Maharishi Ayurveda spa offered daily full-body massages, with...

    (AP) Albert Hofmann, the Swiss chemist who discovered the mind-altering drug LSD, turned 100 on Wednesday with the wish that the banned drug be made available for scientific research. "This is a wonderful birthday party we are having. One could say it is a consciousness-expanding experience without LSD," Hofmann said with a twinkle in his eye, standing at a podium to address about 50 people attending a formal gathering in Basel, the city where he worked in Switzerland's pharmaceutical industry. Hofmann, who still takes walks almost daily in the nearby hilly village where his lives with his wife, Anita, whom...

"I had wonderful visions," Albert Hofmann said, recalling his first accidental consumption of the drug. "I sat down at home on the divan and started to dream," he told the Swiss television network SF DRS. "What I was thinking appeared in colors and in pictures....

    BURG, Switzerland -- Albert Hofmann, the father of LSD, walked slowly across the small corner office of his modernist home on a grassy Alpine hilltop here, hoping to show a visitor the vista that sweeps before him on clear days. But outside there was only a white blanket of fog. He picked up a photograph of the view on his desk instead, left there perhaps to convince visitors of what really lies beyond the window. Hofmann will turn 100 on Wednesday, a milestone to be marked by a symposium in Basel on the chemical compound that he discovered and which...

But outside there was only a white blanket of fog hanging just beyond the crest of the hill.

In a dispatch on leftist filmmaker Michael Moore's website, Sheehan said she was troubled by the "level of the military presence" in the Gulf Coast state.
