LSD discoverer turns 100

lsd_molecule.jpgAlbert Hofmann, discoverer of LSD, is 100 this week and discusses his controversial discovery in an article in the New York Times.

Hofmann’s birthday is being marked by a symposium in Switzerland, where scientists, visionaries and artists are meeting to discuss the impact of the compound on society and how it may be put to good use in the future.

UPDATE: The Independent has another (probably better) article on LSD, Hofmann and the symposium.
