A Message

To all teenagers,

Often, we are faced with an option to pursue our


greatest desires or continue with our lives as normal. As time
progresses, some of these desires will prove to be more than
they're worth, and could change the course of life, perhaps even
end it forever.

As I'm sure any teen would know, drugs are no

sometimes shown that prohibited drugs are harmful to one's physical and

would begin their lives with this arbitrary decision set in their
mind. Some, if not most of you reading this are probably by far
convinced that you will spend your lives drug-free no matter
what. Unfortunately, however, it is a lot easier said than done.

Many of today's addicts started in their teenage


years, having first tried it at a party, or their high school
washroom, after being pushed into it by their friends. What they
did not realize was the true beneficial value of that friendship.
Would a true “homie” try desperately to convince you to do
something you didn't want to do, something that could tear your
life apart?
Implementation in Today's
Societies

Before it was made illegal in 1971 by the


U.N. Convention on Psychotropic
Substances, L.S.D. was popular among
various psychiatric and
medical professionals, and
was considered highly
effective in illicit
psychedelic therapy. Today, it is instead
frequently used by college students, high
school students, and artists. They are more
likely to recognize the drug based on the
following names:

Acid Bartman

Bart Simpson Microdots

Gelatin Chips
Windowpanes/Blotter

Paper/Blotter

L.S.D. is usually consumed orally, along with


a substrate such as blotter paper, sugar
cubes, or gelatin. It is also sometimes
delivered as a liquid
and injected in the
skin.
