Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). Computer graphic of a molecule of LSD (also called lysergide), a potent hallucinogenic and mood-altering drug. LSD was first synthesized in 1938 from lysergic acid, an alkaloid drug found in the ergot fungus that grows on grains of rye. The drug has no proven medical uses but is widely abused for the dream-like changes in mood and thought it causes. Users can experience anything from feelings of omnipotence to extreme terror. These feelings can possibly lead to irrational behavior which may endanger the users life. Side-effects include drowsiness, dizziness, dilated pupils, numbness & tingling, weakness, tremors, and nausea.
