Experimental Drugs

Apparently, scientists are more open minded about experiments than my college professors ever told me. According to this article, Francis Crick used LSD. Yep, Francis Crick of the Double Helix fame. I read the novel The Double Helix when I was in college, as part of the required reading for my sophomore level biology course. I liked the book so much that I actually read it twice. It has a nice, conversational tone that a non bio person, such as myself, wasn't intimidated by the huge mind boggling concepts that these guys were investigating. If these allegations are true, and high school kids get their hands on the information, can you imagine what it will do to a classroom?
