what a great little book about honesty and entheogen usage. i felt it dident really give the reader all the gory bits to her true story, but after reading the whole book perhaps she wrote it to help herself integrate what she had experienced with drugs and with Todd. I recommend anyone who has read it or before they read it, to watch the documentary done by vice on the LSD underground missile silo.
Without going into Krystle Cole's background too much (I would suggest watching the Underground LSD Palace YouTube video for more on her unique life experiences), "Lysergic" is a book about her involvement with LSD manufacturers for the Brotherhood of Eternal Love back in the late '90s and early 2000s. Cole grew up in Kansas with very little and met Todd Skinner, one of the involved chemists, at a strip club where she was temporarily employed. Cole had no experience with psychedelics when Skinne...more
Aficionados of the ultimate psychedelic may recall that acid got very hard to come by at the beginning of the 21st century. That's because the major manufacturer of the drug was busted. Krystle Cole was there. A goth stripper from Kansas, she got involved with Gordon Todd Skinner--he and William Leonard Pickard were the major kingpins of LSD. She describes the old missile silo that served as the manufacturing base. Cole has gone on to host the invaluable website Neurosoup. To put it mildly, she...more
Quite perplex after reading this book.. Krystle had such intense experiences, and had a really crazy life... why is it that I feel this book has no "soul" ? You >feel< little when you read it. She reports different trip, but I didn't feel them.
She had experienced telepathy, which is truly astonishing !! I would like to know more about that !

Another thing is that I lost the feeling of time. The next chapter seems to happen the day after, but after a while you realise that months had passed...more
Read this after watching the VICE documentary. Terrible editing, but it was a compelling look at spirituality and The Divine. I skipped most of Todd's letters from prison at the end.
It gets 1 star because of the trial information and shedding light on how these folks work with government to further each others ends. It would get zero if it were based solely on her writing ability and stories describing her own experiences. She should be forced to watch the Seinfeld where Elaine goes off about the use of exclamation points. And nobody should have to read about her interpretations of the Bible and Rig Veda. Stick to the point and leave the analysis of scripture to the educate...more
Wonderful book, easy and quick to read, full of information most people don't know but should. Really gives you a different out look on the DEA and our government. Great story about the Skinner/Pickard trials and Krystle's personal story behind it all. Very refreshing to read words of another person who thinks about the universe and all it's beauty in the same perspective as I do. Really wonderful book, so thankful to have stumbled across it. I recommend anyone read this...but go at it with an o...more
This book kept me intrigued throughout the book. Very interesting story, although I did wonder if some of the letters were not included.
I feel like I could have written a more interesting book. There are so many spelling errors and it is just so obviously done by an amateur.
