are too easily turned against you and transformed into star witnesses.
Don't deceive yourself by thinking that your friends would never do
such a thing. This country is populated with sheeple who lick the
boots of their masters at the drop of a hat. The added incentive of
avoiding jail time turns these bleating sheeple into singing stool
pigeons nearly every time.
Along with partners in crime, one's customers for the product are a
prime source of snitches. The first and foremost rule in contacts with
one's customers is that they have no business knowing that you are
cooking the product yourself. The reason for this, beyond their
babbling their mouths to their friends, is that if they get themselves
into trouble they then have a lot more leverage for cutting themselves a
snitching bargain with the heat if they say that they can deliver up an
LSD lab. More leverage for them turns into more time and freedom

for this turncoat to work at setting you up, because the heat sees a
bigger pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. If all he has to offer to the
heat is just another LSD connection, they will get frustrated with him if
he does not immediately deliver on your demise, and will put his
squealing butt in the slam where it belongs.
Several further tactics are called for to protect yourself from
treachery emanating from your customers. If the heat succeeds in
turning your customer against you, they will first try to get themselves in
on a transaction, and failing this, try to make what is called a
"controlled buy" whereby thek traitor buys while they watch and
To foil such tactics, you must be in control of setting up
transactions, not your customers. They do not call you to set up deals; in
fact, it's best that they not even have your number, address or real
name. Know well the schedules and habits of your customers, and
simply call them with very short warning times of your arrival and
readiness to do business. Third parties are not invited, wanted or
allowed. If they don't have all the cash ready at hand, just front the
remainder with an understanding of how long it will take to gather up
the balance. Then return similarly unannounced to collect what is
owed. By this I don't mean to come back in a couple hours to pick up
the marked bills. Rather, the time frame must be sufficiently long so as
to make a stake-out by the enemy a real pain and not worth their
Explicit telephone conversations with one's customers are a
definite no-no, and such an understanding must be reached with them
from the outset. Rather, the conversations should be friendly, filled
with small talk, and mostly held to make sure the guy is home. Use of
codewords and other such nonsense is for idiots. If one's customer
breaks these pre-agreed-upon rules, it is cause for suspicion.

of the adapter, a 2000
ml flask can be attached
containing 1000 ml of
acetonitrile or dimethylformamide. The use of stopcock grease
should be avoided, as SOs will attack it. Rather the joints should be
sealed by wrapping parafilm around them.
There will be a tendency for the two solutions to come into a
vapor equilibrium. 30% oleum contains about 580 grams per liter
SOa. The vapors will over time work their way into the solvent and
form complexes. It will take some time, depending upon the
temperature, for enough fumes from the sulfuric acid to work their
way out of the acid and into the solvent. Slow magnetic stirring in the
solvent helps to maintain a homogenous mixture, and speeds
absorption of SOa fumes. Cooling the solvent in ice can't hurt either.
Analysis of the solvent should be done after about 12 hours have
passed. The need for stirring is especially crucial here so a
representative sample is taken. To analyze, remove exactly 2 ml of
solvent with a pipette and squirt it into 50 ml of distilled water. Add
some phenolphthalein indicator, or monitor pH with a meter. Now
titrate with .IN NaOH (prepared by dissolving exactly 4 grams of
NaOH pellets in one liter of water) until the color of the solution turns

pink, or the pH meter shows pH 7. Record the amount of NaOH
Molarity SO, in solvent = mis NaOH used / 40
So a 1-molar SO3 complex will require 40 ml of .IN NaOH to
neutralize it. Two equivalents of NaOH react per sulfuric acid.
If after 12 hours, the solvent has still not absorbed enough SO),
just let the process continue. The complex formed need not be exactly
.5M in acetonitrile, or 1 M in dimethlyformamide, just close to those
values. What is important is that the exact strength of complex formed
be known, because that dictates just how much of SOa solution is
used. That is crucially important to the success of the reaction.
When the SOa-solvent complex has reached the desired strength,
the flask containing it should be stoppered with a glass or Teflon
stopper, and kept in the fridge. It will gradually darken first to yellow
and then orange, but it is good for at least 3 or 4 months.
The argument can be made that this procedure is wasteful of
fuming sulfuric acid. After all, maybe only 2 liters of 1-molar SO3
complex can be reasonably made from a pint of fuming sulfuric acid
by this passive fume-absorption method. When one considers that this is
enough SO3 to make 3 million doses, however, such objections are silly.
With SO3 complex in solvent prepared and carefully standardized to
evaluate its exact strength, attention can be turned to LSD synthesis
using lysergic acid and SO3 complex. Exact weighing of ingredients,
and assuring that they are free from water are the two main concern
