*Mescaline* Makes Scientists Solve Pretty Much Everything in Hours

The 26 men unleashed a slew of widely embraced innovations shortly after their [*Mescaline*] experiences, including a mathematical theorem for NOR gate circuits, a conceptual model of a photon, a linear electron accelerator beam-steering device, a new design for the vibratory microtome, a technical improvement of the magnetic tape recorder, blueprints for a private residency and an arts-and-crafts shopping plaza, and a space probe experiment designed to measure solar properties.

And LSD is still a Schedule I drug in the U.S., the harshest-punished class of drug, meaning “it is deemed to have a high potential for abuse; it has no legitimate medical use in treatment; and there is a lack of accepted safety for its use under medical supervision.” What a bunch of dumbasses.


EDIT: Whoever wrote that article misread the original study. The scientists took mescaline, not LSD.
