   Generic name for the hallucinogen lysergic acid
   diethylamide-25.  Discovered by Dr. Albert Hofmann in 1938, LSD is one
   of the most potent mind-altering chemicals known.  A white, odorless
   powder usually taken orally, its effects are highly variable and begin
   within one hour and generally last 8-12 hours, gradually tapering off.
   It has been used experimentally in the treatment of alcoholics and
   psychiatric patients.  [Where it showed some success.] It
   significantly alters perception, mood, and
   psychological processes, and can impair motor coordination and skills.
   During the 1950s and early 1960s, LSD experimentation was legally
   conducted by psychiatrists and others in the health and mental health
   professions.  Sometimes dramatic, unpleasant psychological reactions
   occur, including panic, great confusion, and anxiety.  Strongly
   affected by SET and SETTING.  Classification: hallucinogens.  Slang
   names: acid, sugar.  See also appendix B.  (RIS 27:211-52 entries)

   -- Research Issues 26, Guide to Drug Abuse Research Terminology,
         available from NIDA or the GPO, page 54.

     The administration  of  very  small  doses  of  Delysid
(1/2-2  ug./kg.  body  weight) results in transitory distur-
bances of affect, hallucinations, depersonalization,  reliv-
ing  of  repressed memories, and mild neuro-vegetative symp-
toms.  The effect sets in after 30 to 90  minutes  and  gen-
erally  lasts  5 to 12 hours.  However, intermittent distur-
bances of affect may occasionally persist for several days.
