LSD

LSD or lysergic acid diethylamide, also called acid, is an odourless white powder with hallucinogenic properties. Hallucinogenic drugs or psychedelics make the user feel as though they are in an altered state of reality. Basically they be trippin’. Acid/LSD is commonly distributed in squares of blotting paper and small pieces of gelatine which have been soaked or dipped in the liquid form of LSD. What is distributed as LSD however may in fact be other chemical compounds such as NBOMe or other substances that can be dangerous, inconsistent in quality and have the potential (if taken in large quantities) to cause death.

Sexual consent is about having the ability and freedom to agree to sexual activity. This is something that must be clearly established between two people before any kind of sexual act or behavior, and you can change your mind at any time.

Unfortunately, your judgment can be dramatically impaired while you’re under influence of drugs. Before letting anyone come to your place (if you’re hosting) or before coming to a session hosted by other people, establish a set of boundaries, particularly about what you and other people are and aren’t prepared to do sexually.

Remember: sex without consent is rape, and rape and sexual assault is a crime.

If you don’t know how to tell the other person, you could show this song as a message of you not willing to have sexual intercourse.

If you’re hosting, it’s your responsibility to ensure that no one in your session is being forced to do something that he does not want to.

Trips are taken by placing a piece of the LSD laced blotting paper under the tongue. It is then absorbed into the blood stream sublingually.

There is no such thing as a safe level of drug use. Substance use carries risk. It’s important to be careful when taking any drug. If injected, the effect of LSD is felt almost immediately. Smoking, snorting or swallowing the drug may vary the length of time it takes for LSD to come on. 

The effects on any one person will vary depending on:
– A person’s body weight
– General state of health
– Regular use of substance
– If taken in combination with other drugs including prescription medication
– The amount that is consumed
– Quality of the drug (this varies from batch to batch for most illicit drugs)

An LSD trip can last anywhere between 4 to 12 hours. This will differ depending on the quantity and or quality of drug consumed. Effects include:
– Increased feelings of relaxation and euphoria
– Audio and visual disturbances (seeing and hearing things)
– Confusion and trouble concentrating
– Increased and or irregular heart beat
– Hypertension and quickening of breath
– Sweating and chills
– Facial flushing
– Vomiting
– Numbness Hallucinogens change our perception and experience of the world. And it’s real hard to predict the effect that LSD will have on any given person. State of mind plays a role in a users experience. A bad trip can be both a frightening and unpleasant experience. Delusions, paranoia, anxiety and hallucinations so intense that a person becomes erratic isn’t going to be the kind of magic carpet ride that you hoped for if an acid trip starts going south.

Regular use of LSD may eventually cause:
– Psychological dependence on hallucinogens

In the following days after using LSD, the following may be experienced:
– Insomnia
– Fatigue
– Body and muscle aches
– Depression

If you’re going to use any form of drug, go about it safely. You make the choices that determine what substances you put into your body. Whatever your choice, it’s important to remember that being safe and responsible (that’s with yourself and with others) is the golden rule. 

We’ve got some helpful tips to consider. 
– Set limits for yourself, and stick to them
– Don’t let other people pressure you into doing drugs
– Try to avoid mixing drugs with other drugs or be informed about the risks
– Try to be aware of exactly what you are taking and how much
– Eat before you party and stay hydrated with water
– Tell some trusted friends what you’re planning to do
– Don’t drive your car/motorcycle if you’re planning to get drunk/high on a night out
– If you’re already too drunk and you have your car with you, leave the car and get home with taxi/grabcar and get your car back when you’re fully sober the next day(s), or use YouDrinkIDrive app  to get you a designated sober driver for your ride home.
– Put your close friend’s phone number on speed dial so that he/she can pick you up in case you’re too drunk/high and left alone. Apple’s iPhone has a feature where you can quickly and easily call for help and alert your emergency contacts  – take an advantage of that feature if you’re an iPhone user.
