Where Do You Want to Go Drop Acid today?

Here's your anti-drug PSA:

From Reason Magazine:
"Missing from the slate of speakers were, arguably, LSD’s two best-known “problem children,” Microsoft’s Bill Gates and Apple’s Steve Jobs. As John Markoff, author of What the Dormouse Said: How the 60s Counterculture Shaped the Personal Computer, told a D.C. audience at a December event hosted by the Copyright Clearance Center, both have acknowledged the formative effect of dropping acid, with Jobs going so far as to call it “one of the two or three most important things that he’d done in his life.”

Just say "No" to LSD kids. You might turn out like Steve Jobs or Bill Gates.

Like everything else, it can be good in moderation. Considering the way it works on the brain,though, it is certainly dangerous enough to warrant extreme caution. There is a reason that on acid you can hear colors and see music. It opens up connective pathways to the brain in ways they normally aren't connected directly. That is probably why some people that use it tend to be so creative, it's opening up that process in the brain.

Also, in addition to overindulgnce, there is the prospoect of getting bad acid, or some that has been polluted, which can cause the equivalent of waking nightmares, though this is rare.

Too much can permenently rewire the brain, in ways that may not necessarily be so positive.

To be honest, I don't really think that most people should do acid. But, for those that can handle it, and who are creative already, it can be a positive experience.
