The CIA & LSD: Acid Dreams

Program #LEEM003. Recorded in Menlo Park, CA on September 13, 1997.

During the Cold War in the early 1950s, the CIA experimented and developed LSD as a mind control espionage weapon. It launched a massive covert program in which countless innocent civilians were used as guinea pigs. Though the CIA was intent on keeping the drug for its own purposes, it could not prevent it from spreading into the popular culture resulting in major social consequences.
