Erowid Update on LSD "Overdose"
    #4106188 - 04/28/05 10:42 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Reported "LSD Overdose" Not LSD



Summary
In October 2004, several newspapers reported that Gloria Discerni, a student at North Idaho College, had died after an LSD overdose. Initial reports stated that a friend of Discerni, another freshman named Cameron Jester, added somewhere between 6 and 12 "drops" or "hits" of LSD to her orange juice. Reports vary on whether or not she knew the material was in her drink (most suggest she did), and we do know that Jester also consumed the material. Discerni relatively quickly began having a negative reaction to the ingestion including vomiting and "slipping in and out of consciousness". Gloria Discerni went into a coma and was removed from life support three days later, on October 15, at the hospital.

Though initial reports identified the substance as "LSD", those of us familiar with the range of psychoactives quickly suspected that it was some other material, perhaps a research chemical such as 5-MeO-AMT. There are only one or two known deaths directly as a result of LSD ingestion, and rarely, if ever, is this sort of negative physical reaction seen to a dose of 6-12 hits. Toxicology results have now verified that it was, in fact, 5-MeO-AMT, not LSD.

Below is a dated record of the issue as it evolved. Six months after the original misidentification, an April 22, 2005 news blurb describing the sentencing of the person who gave Discerni the substance referred to police findings that it was in fact 5-MeO-AMT.

You didn't have to tell me what it was. Of course, this report is not going to be given as much attention as "LSD OVERDOSE!!!!" Poor girl, I wonder exactly how much 5-meo she was dosed with.

Yeah, it's an awful situation. I hope I never, ever end up swallowing that shit.

That pissed me off, I knew it wasn't LSD from the start. Just more misinformation being spread....

That dude that dosed her went to my high school, and was a grade above me. Here is a picture of the article in my local paper, I posted it once before, it is RIDICULOUS.

If you don't want to read the whole thing, at least read that part that I highlighted in the third image.

Damn, i've bought 5-MeO-AMT sold as acid 3 times already in the past year (white unperfed and liquid, but i also found white unperfed needlepoint at one time), and the first time the guy told me to take four hits or more. I'll never do that again, it has a chemical taste to it. LSD does not.
