LSD (lysergic Acid Dyethilamide)
LSD (lysergic Acid Dyethilamide) A Swiss chemist named Dr. Albert Hoffman first produced lysergic acid Diethylmide ľor best known as LSD in 1938 (Dye, 1992, p. 2). Hoffman discovered the drug while trying to synthesize a new drug for the treatment of headaches. He obtained the lysergic acid from the parasitic fungus that grows on rye plants known as ergot. From the lysergic acid, he synthesized the compound LSD. He used the compound to test for its pain killing properties on laboratory animals.

Hallucinogen While many drugs speed up or depress the central nervous system, there is a class of drugs that distorts how we feel, hear, see, smell, taste, and think. Called hallucinogens because users often hallucinate, or experience nonexistent sensations, these drugs are also known as psychedelic, or mind-bending, drugs.

LSD The use of drugs among Americans is rapidly rising. They can be bought and sold almost anywhere, from the streets to hallways of schools. A drug on the rapid rise from the 70\'s is LSD. Some people attribute this to the fact it is extremely inexpensive, $2-4 a hit, the wrong belief by users that it is a safer drug than marijuana because it isn\'t physically addicting.

Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD)
Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD) First invented by Albert Hoffman in 1938. He was a Swiss chemist seeking to synthesize a new drug for the treatment of headaches. He obtained lysergic acid from ergot, a parasitic fungus that grows on the rye plant. From this he synthesized LSD. He tested it in laboratory animals for its analgesic (painkilling) properties using standard procedures. He stored it on a shelf for 5 years because it seemed inactive. Little did Hoffman know, he had just synthesized

The Holy Trinity The Holy Trinity by Masaccio was done in approximately 1428. It is a superb example of Masaccio\'s use of space and perspective. It consists of two levels of unequal height. Christ is represented on the top half, in a covered, barrel-vaulted chapel. On one side of him is the Virgin Mary, and on the other, St. John. God the Father supports Christ himself, and the Dove of the Holy Spirit rests on Christ\'s halo. In front of the pilasters that enframe the chapel kneel the donors (h
