What is LSD?

LSD is commonly sold in tablets, capsules, or liquid. It is usually added to absorbent and decorated paper tablets, mostly taken orally. Each square is counted as a dose. LSD is one of the most potent mood changing drugs and is derived from the extremely poisonous egot fungus; a mold that grows at the end of grains. Tiny amounts can produce up to 12 hours of effect.
