Vietnam soldiers on acid
    #3829117 - 02/24/05 08:57 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

OK, I'd just like to hear any information or stories you guys might have on this. Obviously plenty of soldiers were using various drugs in Vietnam, and as I've heard, even whilst in the jungles in enemy territory. Can you imagine?

Now, I've been told something very fascinating by a couple friends...not sure if this is valid or not...but what Ive been told is that when the soldiers would encounter sudden combat - gunfire, explosions,etc - that no matter how high they were, a massive burst of adrenaline would kick in and they'd almost magically "snap" out of their trip. I'm just wondering if this idea has any validity.

Merci.

holy shit. Nice story! Well that does seem to validate the idea of adrenaline overpowering a strong drug intoxication.

yeah. my girlfriend's 'uncle' (her dad's best friend) went to 'nam. he says he did acid during combat, not by choice though. basically, he was tripping a couple times in early 70s in 'nam, and his firebase got raided by the bad guys. didn't really say how he acted on acid, but he survived, so i bet the adrenaline kicked in. LSD is definitely not as powerful as pure human adrenaline.

I'd imagine some of those soldiers suffered mentally after those combat encounters on acid. I mean so many vets returned home with PTSD and natural flashbacks from horrifying moments they'd had...I really can't imagine the mindstate of a soldier who watched his friends get blown to bits on a head full of acid. What a nightmare.

Speaking of soldiers and lsd, have any of you seen the video clip going around of a group of WWII soldiers dosed out of their minds on acid? It's unbelievably hysterical if you get the chance to see it.

Hmm this thread didn't get nearly the amount of posts as I thought it would. I guess the "vets" don't like to comment much on newbies' posts here  :rolleyes: or it's just not an interesting thread??? I personally find this topic extremely fascinating, I'll have to further research it elsewhere online.

Umm..I don't know that you gotta go judging your own post or everyone who didn't respond to it...maybe no one had anything to say, regardless of the interest-factor? It's a pretty random question.

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

:confused:

LSD was created by Hofmann in 1943. I'm pretty sure no WW II soldier had any access to it before the end of the war.

Are you talking about the army testing hallucinogens on its soldiers to see the impact on combat situations? If yes, I saw the footage, and it's funny and disturbing at the same time. The situation is funny, but you gotta feel for the poor soldiers who were dosed without even knowing.

Touche. I woke up at 5am this morning to pick up my friend and drive to this new job, only to have him tell me "Uhhh my bad man but i forgot to tell you, we don't work on Fridays"... :rolleyes: lame. So I suppose I was in a funk when i complained about this thread.

And yeah, Im very aware that lsd wasnt invented until 1943 so that was just a poor slip of the mind on my part. Whatever psychedelic they were on, they sure seemed to be having a good time! Accept for one soldier who was unfortunately having a bad trip. The camera shows him sitting down miserably sulking, and the narration voice says something like "all were enjoying the fun...accept this poor fellow, who didn't seem to be feeling too pleasant." Im surprised none of those soldiers accidentally shot anyone.

I've seen some short clips of soldiers all dosed up by the CIA...that shit is funny. They're standing around a parking lot or something, in uniform, in a daze..some of them are laughing. Good stuff.

I think y'all are looking for this mpeg. Although it was British troops being tested, so it may not be the one you're talking about....

hehe, yep that's the one alright. CLASSIC. Kudos to you ToiletDuk...I'm sure you've provided laughter for tons of shroomerites with the posting of this clip. BTW: Do you know what year this was made in?

Glad I could find it for you guys and I'm also glad y'all enjoyed it! :laugh:
As to when it was made, I don't really know, but judging from the fact that it's in B&W, I'd guess late 50's or early 60's...

Not to be an ass, it don't really matter, but LSD was created in 1938 it was discovered to be psychedelic in 1943. :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :mushroom2:

And I said, I don't care if they lay me off either, because I told, I told Bill that if they move my desk one more time, then, then I'm, I'm quitting, I'm going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they've moved my desk ...four times already this year and I used to be over by the window and I could see the squirrels, and they were merry, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and its not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire.
