Bruce Eisner - long. I only skimmed a little of it. [grabbe]

Albert Hofmann, the man who discovered the effects of LSD, has said that he hopes that what he has called his "problem child" will someday become a "wonder" child. I believe Hofmann will have his wish. In the history books of the next century, the discovery of LSD will find its rightful place as one of our most significant achievements, in the same league as the discovery of fire, the wheel, written language, and relativity. In this essay I will reflect on the history of LSD's impact on society and culture as problem child and look forward to how the conversion to wonder child might occur.
