Chicago Women In Drug and Synthetic Urine Trade

As the 60s ended in political assassinations (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy within months of each other in 1968, for example) and notorious violence like that seen at the Altamont Music festival and crime sprees like the Manson family killings erupted in 1969, the media and the government succeeded in convincing the American public that LSD was a drug that inspired madness and violence. In 1970 the acid menace was banned as a Schedule I drug, and many young people were incarcerated for involvement with what had, only a few years before, seemed a promising new substance for research, medical treatment, or at least personal spiritual growth.
