Albert Hofmann died April 29 at the age of 102 (well preserved). This Swiss scientist discovered LSD in 1938 but accidentally ingested it in 1943 and he has had an astonishing effect on all who follow him. This program impressionistically tells that tale.

Take LSD and look at your house. You will see it as an alien would.

If you have never taken LSD, today it is difficult to find, highly illegal, and sadly more expensive (and weaker, so you need to take more!) than ever. But it's very good for you, and everyone should take it at least once. Change your politics, expand your mind. Turn on and tune in.
