LSD Inside LSD puts this mysterious molecule
back under the microscope.

From psychedelics given to terminally ill patients, to reputedly the "world's purest LSD" administered in lab experiments, find out why some researchers believe this "trippy" drug could become the pharmaceutical of the future,
enhancing brain power, expanding creativity and even curing mental illness. 

Fifty years ago, psychedelics or "mind-manifesting" drugs like LSD were considered cutting-edge science.

Within months of its accidental discovery in 1943 by Hoffman, free samples of LSD were arriving at the doorsteps of scientists and psychiatrists around the world to test its effects on everything from alcoholism to autism.

Even the Central Intelligence Agency and the military dosed their own operatives to see if LSD could be weaponized for mind control.
But this powerful hallucinogen became a street drug with a dangerous reputation, and it was eventually outlawed.

Yet despite its illegality, an estimated 23 million Americans have taken LSD, and more than 600,000 try it each year.

Now, after more than three decades, cutting-edge science takes on psychedelics again.

At Purdue University, pharmacology professor Dave Nichols is one of a select group with permission to manufacture and experiment with LSD.

His team uses some of the purest LSD ever made to study its molecular structure and effect on the brains of rats, with intriguing results.

Explorer: 'Inside LSD' shows how after chronic dosing, Nichols' rats begin to avoid social contact and mimic schizophrenic behavior in humans. Nichols believes his study may shed light on the chemical mechanisms underlying mental illnesses, potentially leading to cures.
