It's the drug that takes you on a trip like no other. The drug that fueled a generation of musicians, activists and philosophers, who personified the so called counterculture era of the '60s. Some know it as 'acid'; 'Lucy'; 'shrooms'. It was called a party drug. And quickly made a banned substance.

Come along and join a psychedelic conversation, the floor will be opened for questions. Are you ready to tackle the taboo?
