Funtheist..............is there something you're trying to confide in us? It's OK, man. We're here for you. You don't need to fear judgement here.

Also, how prevalent was LSD use in the 60s? Where are the numbers? I had thought the reason we heard so much about LSD use in the 60s had less to do with its prevalence and more to do with how interesting the stories about its use were.

I'm sure I read that somewhere. Yeah, that's it. I read it somewhere.Consider
