Doctors believed this mysterious drug was a panacea for disorders of the mind. The Secret Intelligence Service and the Ministry of Defence were confident they could harness its powers for interrogation or as a battlefield incapacitant. Hippies and members of the counter culture welcomed the drug as not only a hotline to spiritual experience, but also as a Disneyland of the senses.
They were all, to some degree, correct, but no one could completely harness or direct the awesome effect of LSD.
Although outlawed by Parliament, LSD was, and continues to be, taken by millions.
On the 50th anniversary of LSD being introduced to Britain, Albion Dreaming unearths the hidden past of one of the most powerful drugs on the planet and takes the reader on a trip into a psychedelic history of Britain, from which they will return with a new understanding of LSD and its place in society.
