We must always remember to thank the CIA and the Army for LSD. That’s what people forget. Everything is the opposite of what it is, isn’t it, Harry? So get out the bottle, boy – and relax. They invented LSD to control people and what they did was give us freedom.
Speaking as somebody who’s been in the drug scene, it’s not something you can go on and on doing, you know. It’s like drink, or anything, you’ve got to come to terms with it. You know, like too much food, or too much anything. You’ve got to get out of it. You’re left with yourself all the time, whatever you do – you know, meditation, drugs or anything. But you’ve got to get down to your own god and ‘your own temple in your head,’ like Donovan says. Etcetera. And it’s all down to yourself, you know.
