Timothy Leary on Parenting and LSD (Updated over a year ago)
KPIX Eyewitness news report from July 10th 1968 at the Psychedelic Shop at 1535 Haight Street in San Francisco, featuring a press conference by Timothy Leary who explains his views about teenagers, parents and lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). He contends that: "LSD is not dangerous physically. It can be dangerous psychologically to someone who's not prepared to confront the energy and the grandeur and the wisdom of the divine process. It scares you out of your mind." He also goes on to advise parents that: "Perhaps eventually, when you're spiritually ready, you'll turn on with your children."
