Don't believe a word of this. LSD is nowhere near that stable.

why would CBS fake this story?
They didnt even say anything bad about lsd.
If anything it’s a postivice story, they guys wife seems interested and cool with it, they even got Suzanne Ciani on there praising don!
If this was a fake anti drug story, it would not have been produced this way.

Wonderful story. I don’t care if it’s real or not.

Going to be abusing my Buchla on stage tomorrow again. And wearing/not-wearing tye-dye.

Will happily throw in a £5 tab of acid if anyone buys an £800 module from me. I always thought pushing the psychedelic angle wouldn't have been good for business as people seem to have enough trouble understanding new synthesis concepts as it is, but I'm not above novelty either if it helps make the sale...

Defines the term “publicity stunt” , mixed feelings and emotions about this I must say.

also random story: according to don, owsley was a carnivore and kept three separate fridges, one for meat, one for non-meat food, and one for acid. the acid fridge ended up at the b+a shop.

I'd like to publicly apologize for not dosing any of my 100 clones, even the red ones.
This is not the place I'd imagined it to be.

50-50 on believing this one. But in the end this was a fun positive story about LSD on TV, which is a win.
50+ years on tho i doubt that it would be viable unless stored in some consistent lab situation, but who knows?
Anytime i get to see and hear Ciani is time well spent. She is such a 'mood', for decades before that was a thing.

I have mixed feelings about this one too. On one hand it is an incredible story which kind of supports a long standing rumour. Great text and details. On the other hand this almost coincides with Buchla USA launching their Red Panel brand. Why would an experienced engineer touch unknown crystalline residue? Uhm. :hmm: :buchlamarf:

It really does seem like a perfectly timed promotional move, but as someone who is involved with this launching, I can assure you that Buchla USA had nothing to do with this.

I'm actually not even sure that Eric knows about it yet.
