A report from LSD creator’s 100th birthday conference

Online science magazine Litmus Zine has a interesting report of one person’s experience of last year’s LSD conference that was convened to discuss the science of this curious molecule and celebrate discover Dr Albert Hoffman’s 100th birthday.

The conference took place in Basel, Switzerland and the attendees were reportedly a strange mixture of neuroscientists, hippys, psychologists, artists, sociologists and visionaries.

The article weaves the history of LSD with the topics of the conference, giving an account of the drug’s past and present.

I’ve not come across Litmus Zine before, but it looks like it’s got some great content already online and aims to take a fresh approach to science writing.
