20 11 2011

Wild interview with Krystle Cole, the maker of the very popular Youtube videos about psychedelics on her Neurosoup channel.  Krystle lived in the infamous missile silo that manufactured most of the planet’s LSD around the millennium up to the time of the Pickard bust.  She shares some very captivating and jaw dropping stories about exotic poly-psychedelic drug and sex debauchery, paranoid snitches and the dark world of megalomaniacal dealers using psychedelics as instruments of torture.

“How about contributing to my next prose masterpiece by sending me (as you sent Burroughs) a bottle of SM pills,” Kerouac wrote Leary, referring to psilocybin. “Allen said I could knock off a daily chapter with 2 SMs and be done with a whole novel in a month.”
