Albert Hoffman Dead

Albert Hoffman will be taking his trip into the afterlife, after a heart attack at the age of 103. Hoffman, for those not aware of the name, produced LSD in the 1930s - although it wasn't until 1943 that he discovered the hallucinogenic properties after accidentally getting some on his hand.

Hoffman disliked the way LSD was hijacked by the hippy movement in the States during the 60s and hoped that it would be used for more medicinal purposes as he had intended.

Have a good trip dude.
