LSD was a drug used by all types of people in the 60’s- allowing them an escape from the real world. Some also used the drug to enhance the experience of events such as concerts, sporting events, and other performances. This drug is a symbol of rebellious 50’s children and their yearning for life outside the suburbs.
"LSD is a psychedelic drug which occasionally causes psychotic behavior in people who have NOT taken it.”
― Timothy Leary
