I forget what Hoffman's dose was estimated as being, but he was a
tripper once a year till the day he died
10 micrograms wouldn't do a whole lot, unless you eat a lot of paper or
gels or whatever. The typical dose was SUPPOSED TO BE 250 - 350 mics...
Sandoz standard dosage was 350mics

I knew a guy who ate a whole sheet of Blue Dot blotter in 1971. One of
the last remaining OG STP family (pre-roadie alcoholic street gang)
people showed it to him and he just crumpled it up and... . His name
was/is George, a straight, slightly effeminate puerto rican kid who had
been working a a grocery delivery boy... He showed up one morning at me
and my GF's safe house sponsored by Jewish Family Services (until the
certified folks could contact the kid's parents or investigate abuse
claims as reason not to contact). George ended up with a new persona.
Sgt Pepper! He literally affected a brit accent (Ringo). Wore a brass
button blazer. Talked in Be-At-Els type rhyme. I lost track of him when
I moved to Vt in '73, but ran into him again at Earth People's Park
Shattuck Ave house when I first got to California in 1976. He was 'back
to earth'; the George I met when he first showed up at my E4th and B
Lower East Side slum apartment, but 5 years older (20 or so).

Same shit. Different decade. For every innerspace cosmonaut there's
thousands of Hedonists who just want to get high and no 'learning
experience' is expected or wanted.
