The Pentagon’s LSD Bombs

I never knew there was such a thing as “psychedelic warfare”. From a vintage Popular Science article, via Parapolitical:

Secret U.S. tests show[ed] startling military uses for weird new chemical agents. The so-called “loony gas,” which we believed could incapacitate enemies without actually harming them, turned out to be LSD. Although we acknowledged that LSD could make people “daffy,” we also stated that these psycho-chemicals were more or less humane. That is, the military could saturate enemies with LSD and take over their towns, without destroying them, before the people recovered.

  3. In 1993 I worked for a contractor that had to scan declassified military documents into public record.  I was one of the scanners.  A painfully boring job with free coffee.  Most of the documents were unremarkable but I do remember coming across the schematics for a bomb which I was told never made it to production.  The contents of the bomb included lsd and cocaine along with other drugs that I couldn’t identify by their name at the time.

    • The good thing about that bomb (I’d like to call it the ‘party bomb’…seems to fit) is it would have been a great way for black ops units to smuggle drugs, which they’ve been accused of doing in the past….especially cocaine. 

  5. The gay bomb is better.

    • Certainly at the very least funnier. You just know that one had to have been the brainchild of some horribly sexually repressed individual…….the weapon itself almost seemed like a cry for help, from deep inside dark closet!

      The gay bomb would actually explain the exploding plurality of homosexuals in the military.

  9. Let’s use it, repeatedly, on our own politicians and generals. Maybe we can skip the war because they’ll actually think about it.

    In fact, come bomb me.

    The best part of the report is the government’s tacit admission that LSD is harmless enough to be considered humane.

    • As someone who had a very difficult time on LSD, which took years to fix due to improper setting, this is insane and violent. LSD is ‘safe’, but only under the right conditions. It can put a hell of a psychosis on someone, and that’s not about ‘pushing a predisposed schizo’, it’s not humane, at all.

      I know you are joking mostly.

      The thought of giving acid to a bunch of fearful churchies barely in control of their own minds sounds like a recipe for horror of a hellish kind. Such people hover over the abyss while looking up, then consequently they fall in, unprepared for the descent and unable to climb back out. 

      Psychedelics are for strong wills who can direct their own thoughts and control their fears. Televangelists lead the weak and ignorant. 

    • and then show up like 2 hours later dressed up as “jesus” 😛

      Now don’t give the Plan away too soon, I’ve got the connection to the Vatican’s holy wafer. So don’t blow it right…!  We.. the Liberators are looking for Easter 2012 or maybe even this X-mas 2011… so be real quite we want a good turn out…!   Then we can all dress up like Jesus.

    A couple hundred micrograms of pure acid and then have tanks and troops in gas masks come thundering down your street would have to define a bad trip. It couldn’t happen here 🙂
