This in-depth, large-format book is a study of how psychedelic drugs created god, pop, and just about everything In particular, it traces how young people took hallucinogens to make music and dance to the results from the beginning of the 20th century onwards.

POP In this section, Meze follows the influence of hallucinogens through our art, literature, and music. He shows how young people used psychedelic drugs to make music and dance to the results from the beginning of the 20th century, and how this led to the eruption of creativity we remember as the 1960s.
