How did the synthetic form of Lysergic Acid Diethylamide, which occurs naturally in ergot (a rye and wheat fungus), have such an impact on America in the 1960s? Take a trip back as we explore LSD's role in the cultural upheavals of the '60s, and trace itsroots back to "kykeon", the drug used in ancient Greek Eleusinian rituals.

This program is part of the popular series from the History Channel. This episode takes a trip to discover the facts about LSD. Dr. Timothy Leary, a respected Harvard professor, had great success with his studies of the hallucinogen. He noted improved scholastic performance, a drop in prisoner recidivism rates, and more engagement with reality by schizophrenics. There was just one problem: The establishment did not like the experiments, and soon Leary and LSD found themselves on the wrong side of the law. The program looks at some users of LSD, from Aldous Huxley to Cary Grant to Adele Davis. Tom Wolfe, who chronicled the exploits of fellow writer Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters, in {-The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test}, shares his insights about the psychedelic scene of the 1960s. LSD is compared and contrasted with other mind-altering substances that have been used through the centuries.
