Anti-drug poster, Will they turn you on or will they turn on you, 1970. Unknown artist. Public Health Service, USA.
In 1929, Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann was trying to map the compounds of the ergot fungi. Having produced LSD-25, he found no potential medical use and put it aside. Five years later he resumed experimenting and accidentally ingested some of the substance, followed by strange hallucinations, images he experienced to a kaleidoscope. 
Thus 1934 Hofmann had the first acid trip. In 1947 Sandoz introduced LSD as a psychiatric drug. Despite the fact that possession was made illegal in the US in 1968, the last FDA approved study of LSD in patients was not until 1980. Source

Surprised to see this in my tumbler feed!  This poster is hanging in my classroom at school.
