LSD, or acid, is a common hallucinogenic abused by young and old alike. Most popular during the 60s and 70s, it is still in high use in certain communities, especially in rural areas where locals learn how to make the drug themselves at home. Made from lysergic acid found in a fungus called ergot that grows on rye and other grains, LSD can cause the user to make poor decisions and may even result in long-term brain damage if used chronically, mixed with other drugs and/or used in large doses.

Abusing Hallucinogenic Drugs Affects the Whole Family
LSD is an unpredictable drug. Because there is no regulation of its production, and it’s often made by amateur chemists with limited supplies, there’s no telling the amount of different chemicals that will be included or which chemicals will make it into the mix. Effects of use will depend upon the exact makeup of the drug, as well as the user’s mood and personality.
Some people report having “good trips” defined by positivity and feelings of harmony while others describe “bad trips” that are characterized by paranoia, hallucinations, self-doubt and suicidal thoughts. In general, the user’s sense of time and perception of the environment around them changes, causing them to make choices based on inaccurate information – choices that can be dangerous and even deadly.
