Timothy was pretty strong on advising people to have a trip guide and get proper preparation for an LSD experience. He warned about "bad trips." During the entire LSD craze I think Timothy was one of the strongest in warning that it was a powerful tool to be used caution, not as a recreational drug. I am curious -- which of Timothy's writings did your son read? I was one of the victims of brain damage who used it medically (back when it was legal) under a Ph.D. psychologist's supervision to help reprogram my brain to see normally once again. What I see is a man who went to prison for doing the research that helped me recover from severe neurological problems. Believe me, therapy for brain damage is not easy and not fast. I am sorry that a promising line of research was cut short.
