    Dr. Albert Hofmann first synthesized LSD-25 in 1938 while researching ergot alkaloids at Sandoz Laboratories in Basle Switzerland. He subsequently was the first person to discover it's psychedelic effects on April 16, 1943.

    Many of us acknowledge the profound contribution his discovery has made to our own lives, our sense of self, our values, our relationships with others and the larger world, and our hopes for the future of mankind itself.

    Dr. Hofmann celebrates his 98th birthday on Jan. 11 of this year. Good health and godspeed Albert ! May your problem child yet fullfill its promise as the prodigy we know it to be.

    If you would like to send Dr. Hofmann your birthday wishes, email them to us and we'll forward them to Albert.
