    For an eye opening take on the acid experiments of the 60's ( both gov't and home cookin' ) check out Tom Wolfes' "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test".

    Follow the true adventures of Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters as they gambol through the decade of discovery and debauchery.

    If you recall, Kesey is the author of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest". Dude actually volunteers for the Army testing so he can wrap his mind around the good stuff!

    The best part is that these aren't just acid casualties, but often brilliant people with a fascinating high-wire story to tell.

    He and Robert Hunter(main lyricist for the GD) were both turned on by the govt. at a VA hospital...so one could argue that the govt. sparked the psychedelic revolution.
