High Art at the Geffen Contemporary includes an LSD fountain, wow.

Ok, I'll bite. If the fountain really has LSD in it, how could they possibly get away with it? Remember, this is America, not England, where they have been known to have similar exhibits.

Seriously, if this claim were true the nearest DEA office would be on this like a ton of self-important bricks.

Is it one of those things where they SAY it is, and if someone tries it and thinks they are tripping out we can all laugh at them?

It's a very cool premise for a show. You could do one that goes all the way back to Hieronymous Bosch (ergot) and Delacroix (opium) but it's usually something that's quietly relegated to academic footnotes.

The weird thing is that it's illegal to sell fake drugs. The sentencing isn't the same, but I know that it's a felony (possibly depending on what state you're in), and you can go to prison for it.

Don't know what the laws are for GIVING away fake drugs, though.

Wow, I had a dream about growing mushrooms the other day. I was growing these huge mushrooms in my back yard (in a house I only had in the dream) I was trying to keep Psilocybefrom growing there, but some of the mushrooms looked like they were Psilocybe, so I was worried. Ultimately I ate some to try to figure it out.

IIRC it's a homepathic LSD fountain.

Still, couldn't the DEA arrest for microscopic amounts? It's not like more ridiculous things haven't happened.

I'm going to eat a Fred Tomaselli collage and check it out.

I find it easier to believe that someone wouldn't get arrested for leaves, resin, and pills. LSD is hardcore mandatory minimum felony anywhere in the US.

Am I seeing things? What, really, are things? Is it the water that is running, or is my own brain making the water run?

Please, let's keep LSD away from art, music and poetry. Well art and music, anyway.
