Acid: Following widespread public recreational use, LSD and other
illegal in the U.S. in 1965, but they remained staples of the youthful counterculture for a decade. Acid use
declined during the fraudulent wars on drugs initiated by the Reaganites, who instead favored crack cocaine,
promoted by the CIA as part of the effort to addict and imprison America's entire ethnic underclass.
Historically an upper middle class drug, acid bounced back during the 1990s' economic boom, when it was packaged
in various boutique forms and sometimes combined with other designer drugs such as Ecstasy to induce selected
effects. Street names for LSD — which often refer to the medium, carrier, or manufacturer of the drug
included Bart Simpsons, barrels, blotter, blue flag, chocolate chips, dots, heavenly blue,
L, liquid A, Lucy in
the sky with diamonds, microdots, mind detergent, orange cubes, orange micro, Owsley, paper acid, pearly gate,
purple haze, sacrament, Sandoz, sugar, sunshine, tabs, ticket, twenty-five, wedding bells, white lightning,
windowpane, yellow, Zen.
