Dope Stories: The Acid Test [Episode 14]

For the 14th episode of Dope Stories, we decided to talk a little bit about a book by Martin A. Lee titled Acid Dreams: The Complete Social History of LSD: The CIA, the Sixties, and Beyond.... which discusses the history of LSD, the CIA's involvement, Ken Kesey's role as a guinea pig testing psychedelics for the government, Neal Cassady driving the Furthur bus when the Merry Pranksters made their cross country journey in 1964, Grateful Dead (Warlocks) playing at the initial Acid Tests, Allen Ginsberg turning on Thelonious Monk to mushrooms, plus Homer Simpson tripping balls when he ate a Guatmaelen chilli pepper.

Here's the "setlist" for episode 14 - The Acid Test:
