Famous LSD Users

Lysergic acid diethylamide, or LSD, is a powerful hallucinogenic and was once used as a psychiatric drug. It has no color or smell, which makes it hard to detect. LSD produces strong hallucinations in which the user is perceived to "hear colors" and "see sounds". It is unpredictable, as it alters the user's sense of time, and can produce both positive and negative experiences.


Eminem
 

Because of the drugs psychological and mood altering effects, many famous people have admitted to using the drug to have extreme experiences. Many artists, writers, actors and musicians have experimented with the drug to help heighten their abilities.

In the music world, Ray Charles, Eric Clapton, Fat Boy Slim, Jerry Garcia, Jim Morrison and Eminem are just a few musicians who've admitted to using LSD. In the case of Ray Charles, LSD essentially gave him "eyes", allowing him to see. Both Fat Boy Slim and Jerry Garcia are well known users of LSD, and credit the drug for helping them make music effortlessly. Eminem's Slim Shady nickname is suspected to have resulted from the rapper's LSD use, and he's previously used the drug before stage performances.

Several authors have also tripped on acid to help them create the stories and worlds evident in their writing. Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World, experimented with LSD and other psychedelics while writing the novel, and was injected with LSD at his death.


Chris Farley

Ken Kesey, author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, infamously founded the Pranksters, who brought festival style Acid Tests to America courtesy of a bright green bus. Cartoonist Matt Groening has allegedly dabbled in the drug, as well as the minds behind South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, who link their appearance in drag on the red carpet at the 2000 Oscars to the effects of the drug.

Two famous late comedians, Chris Farley and John Belushi were also notorious LSD users. Both partied hard and repeatedly used LSD and other psychedelics to enjoy life. Unfortunately for both, their lives were cut short due to their partying ways.

Considering the popularity of Apple products, a discussion of LSD use can't be complete without the mention of Apple founder Steve Jobs. Jobs has referenced the drug as being "one of the two or three most important things I've done in [his] life." Scientist Francis Crick discovered the DNA double helix and credited LSD in helping with that process.


Steven Jobs

Harvard psychologist, Timothy Leary is infamous for his psychedelic drug advocacy. Although conducting them when drugs like LSD were still legal, Leary and his partner were fired from the university for their experiments with the drug. Leary truly believed that psychotropic drugs could be used in therapy to provide patients treatment that couldn't be offered via traditional methods.

LSD is not just limited to authors and musicians either, as sports figures also have been documented using the drug. Doc Ellis, a former pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates, claimed to have been under the influence of LSD when he pitched a no hitter in the early 70's.

The list above is but a few of the famous people who have used LSD for various recreational or vocational reasons. Many more have not come out yet.
