In Lysergic, Krystle Cole describes the events that occurred in her life within the time period of 2000 to 2003. Krystle explains her involvement with Gordon Todd Skinner and William Leonard Pickard, the infamous LSD chemists who operated their lab in an underground missile silo in Kansas. This lab, after being busted and shutdown by the DEA, was reported to have been producing 90% of the world's supply of LSD.
Having written the book at 23 years of age, Krystle gives an account of her unique perspective regarding the events she has often called "the crazy psychedelic freak show" that ensued after the Pickard LSD lab bust. Lysergic is a combination of things; it is a story of love, a story of abuse, and most of all a recounting of the experiences that have ultimately exerted a profound effect upon Krystle's life.
Krystle recounts ingesting numerous rare entheogens such as LSD, mescaline, ergot wine, DMT, ALD-52, and 2-CI, among others. She describes the subjective effects of each entheogen, and how these experiences impacted her life at the time. As well, the 2nd edition of Lysergic contains excerpts from letters that Skinner wrote to Krystle from prison.
