New arrest in case of LSD kingpin from Mill Valley
    #7851368 - 01/09/08 01:37 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

An Icelandic national has been arrested on charges of laundering money for William Leonard Pickard, a former Mill Valley man convicted of running a massive LSD lab inside a Kansas missile silo, authorities said.

Stefan Wathne made an initial court appearance in Newark, N.J., this week on a federal grand jury indictment from San Francisco. Wathne, whose last known residence was Moscow, was arrested in New Delhi on Sept. 24 and remained there while federal authorities arranged for extradition.

Wathne eventually agreed to come to the United States voluntarily to face the indictment, and he appeared in court Monday after landing at Newark International Airport. He is free on $5 million bail pending a hearing Thursday in federal court in San Francisco.

Pickard, a Harvard graduate and former drug policy researcher at the University of California, was arrested in 2000 after investigators discovered he was operating a major LSD laboratory inside a decommissioned nuclear weapons silo in Kansas. Also arrested was Clyde Apperson, a computer specialist from Santa Clara County.

Federal investigators seized more than 90 pounds of LSD from the facility, saying the bust was the largest LSD lab seizure in the history of the Drug Enforcement Agency. Authorities said the lab was large enough to produce 16 million doses of the hallucinogenic drug, known formally as lysergic acid diethylamid.

In 2003, after an 11-week jury trial in Kansas, Pickard and Apperson were found guilty of possession with the intent to distribute and conspiracy to manufacture and distribute LSD, officials said. Pickard was sentenced to life in prison and Apperson received a 30-year term.

The indictment against Wathne charges him with conspiring to launder the proceeds from the LSD lab, authorities said. The alleged money laundering occurred between spring 1996 and November 2000.

Authorities did not say when Wathne was indicted or how much money he is suspected of laundering. He could face up to 20 years in prison and $500,000 in fines if convicted.

"16 million doses of the hallucinogenic drug, known formally as lysergic acid diethylamid."

Wait a minute....LSD doesn't stand for Lysergic Acid Diethylamid anymore? I am so out of the loop, when do they change these things!

Life in prison? yeah, that seems fair - considering all those minds he would have liberated.

Stupid fucking media, always writing about things they know nothing about.

90 pounds of LSD is 40,823,313,300 micrograms. That's 408,233,133 100 mic hits! That's 408 million hits, not 16 million.

Obviously if they had 408 million hits then their lab was capable of a lot more than 16 million.

God that's a fuckload of acid!

Remember too that he was ratted out by another LSD researcher. I'm kind of surprised that he's still alive.

Nope. But who's speaking out about it? A small handful of people i'd bet.

LSD can cause some psychological problems in some users with heavy and/or consistent use. How do you know how it will effect you? Take a hit and find out. hehe.

shhhhh no one knows that! hah

Ya, I remember reading that article about the Pickard bust and how it wasn't actually 90 lbs of LSD. They included prerecurors such as the trunk load of ergot that they found and some other stuff in the weight too I believe. But ya, life in prison is EXTREMELY harsh! And how they got caught in a Missle Silo....there was a lot of traffic coming in and out of the Silo, among other things, I believe.

He was ratted out by John Halpern, a leading psychedelics researcher affiliated with both Harvard University and MAPS.
