At the time of this writing (fall '94), federal and most state courts
that I know of have mandatory minimum sentences for LSD that count
the weight of the carrier in the total weight of the drugs seized. Only
politicians could be so stupid and still keep their jobs. This screwed-up
state of affairs has a strong bearing on the best way to move the acid.
It means that large blocks of acid are best sold as grams of the crystal
sealed in glass to someone who will then make blotter out of them.
The time-exposure is thereby greatly cut down, even if a lower price is
Smaller operators looking to turn on a few thousand of their
closest friends would do best to drip the product onto sugar cubes,
freeze them during storage and move the product as a high priced
gourmet treat. Dilution with alcohol and moving the stuff as liquid is
not good, as even at freezer temperatures acid does not keep well in
solution. Once locked up in a sugar cube, the tender molecule is

protected. Producing thousands of sugar cube doses in one day is an
easy, though tedious, operation. One starts with a burette and lots of
sugar cubes (not purchased at the same place, for God's sake!).
Next, the average size of droplet delivered from this burette must be
measured, and the concentration of LSD tartrate in water solution
calculated so that one drop contains 100 micrograms of acid. The
burette in my lab delivers 188 drops per 10 ml, so each drop is .0532
ml. The size of the drops delivered from a burette depends upon the
size of the drip-tip on the burette, the viscosity of the liquid, its
surface tension and the molecular attraction of the fluid to the drip-tip.
The addition of a little acid to the water solution may change these
factors, so the preliminary results obtained from pure water should be
checked against the size of droplet one gets with LSD solution. In any
case, the calculation goes like this:
The weight measurement assumes LSD of high purity. Proper dose
size should be checked by dropping a test sugar cube. This bio-assay
should be done by someone other than the cooker, as he may have
been chronically exposed to LSD during manufacture, and immune to its

That route has several drawbacks which make it impractical for
clandestine synthesis. The first and most important problem is the
availability of 2,4,5-trimethoxybenzaldehyde. This substance is not
exactly a linchpin of chemical commerce. So far as I know, it has one
use: making TMA-2. Those same folks who gave me the hassle over
the purchase of Rochelle salts will certainly report a shipment of
Mexico another species which he named LOPHOPHORA DIFFUSA. This plant is
yellow-green, soft, ribless and contains a somewhat different alkaloid mixture
with far less mescaline that L. williamsi.
About half an hour after ingesting the buttons the first effects are felt. There is a
feeling of strange intoxication and shifting consciousness with minor perceptual
changes. There may also be strong physical effects, including respiratory
pressure, muscle tension (especially face and neck muscles), and queasiness or
possible nausea. Any unpleasant sensations should disappear within an hour.
After this the state of altered consciousness begins to manifest itself. The
experience may vary with the individual, but among the possible occurences are
feelings of inner tranquillity, oneness with life, heightened awareness, and rapid
thought flow. During the next several hours these effects will deepen and
become more visual. Colors may become more intense. Halos and auras may
appear about things. Objects may seem larger, smaller , closer or more distant
than they actually are. Often persons will notice little or no changes in visual
perception while beholding the world about them, but upon closing their eyes
they will see on their mind-screen wildly colorful and constant changing patterns.
After several more hours the intensity of the experience gradually relaxes.
Thought becomes less rapid and diffuse and more ordered. In the Navajo peyote
ritual this change of thought flow is used wisely. During the first part of the
ceremony the participants submit to the feeling and let the peyote teach them.
During the latter part of the ritual the mind turns to thoughtful contemplation and
understanding with the conscious intellect what the peyote has taught the
The entire experience may last from 6 to 12 hours depending upon the individual
and the amount of the plant consumed. After all the peyote effects have passed
there is no comedown. One is likely to feel pleasantly relaxed and much a peace
with the world. Although there is usually no desire for food during the experience
one would probably have a wholesome appetite afterwards.
METHODS OF USE
The most common method of use is simply to chew up and swallow the fresh or
dried buttons after removing the tufts and sand. This is the way it is almost
always done at Indian ceremonies. Most people find the taste of this cactus
unbearably bitter. The Indians, however, feel if ones heart is pure, the bitterness
will not be tasted. Many have found that by not cringing from the taste, but rather
letting ones senses plunge directly to the center of the bitterness, a sort of
seperation from the offensive flavor is experienced. One is aware of the
bitterness, but it no longer disturbs him. This is similar to the practice of bringing
ones consciousness to the center of pain so that detachment may occur. It is not
a difficult trick, but it takes som
