Soldiers on acid

There’s a short film bouncing around out there detailing a 1963 experiment during which the British Army gave some soldiers LSD and watched as they tried performing their duties. It’s like the opening scene from “Pineapple Express” in real life (may be inappropriate for kids). My favorite part is when the guy climbs the tree to feed the birds.

It’s pretty incredible to think that someone in anyone’s army thought that they had to do an experiment to see if people couldn’t function on drugs. And they let those guys carry around rocket launchers. Incredible. I think when they’re looking at the map to find their location, they’re really looking for the nearest Jack-in-the-Box.
