The 60's Drug Culture and Intelligence
#1
Without claiming that LSD is good or bad, it should be recognized that the CIA was pushing this drug hard in the 60's. I fully recognize that some here have credited it with changing their lives for the good. Not the point. Why did the CIA push it.

Here are a list of links already posted here at DPF and elsewhere to work on these questions.

(Any moderator who wants to add to this list, just edit this post so that they are kept in one place.)

Psychedelic Intelligence: The CIA and the Counter Culture (Go to 23:00 for a nice clip of Leary and colleagues bragging about their exploits.)

The MK-ULTRA Iceberg

Project MK-ULTRA (A document dump)

Drugs as Weapons Against Us (h/t Drew)

Wide ranging books on hallucinogens from Peter

Acid Dreams: The Complete Social History of LSD: the CIA, the Sixties, and Beyond (.pdf) And many more books here. h/t Peter

Dave McGowan: Weird Scenes From the Canyon h/t Maggie
