I Can See Clearly Now

The Legend: If you put LSD in your eyes you'll have better hallucinations.

Status: False


The theory is that you will have better visual hallucinations if there is a high concentration of LSD in the eyes. However, the mechanics of action for LSD take place in the brain, not the eyeballs. Hallucinations are caused by a change in neurochemistry, not any specific stimulus to the eye, so logic suggests this is not true. There is no research on this at this time.
