Nobel Prize genius Crick was high on LSD|
FRANCIS CRICK, the Nobel Prize-winning father of modern genetics, was under the influence of LSD when he first deduced thedouble-helix structure of DNA nearly 50 years ago.
I heard the rumor that Crick was on acid when he realized the true shape of DNA many times over the years, but this reprint is the only link I can find that attempts to corroborate the story from first-hand accounts. I have to admit to seeing strands of DNA under the influence of psychedelics myself, but of course, I already knew what they looked like. A big thanks to Crick for seeding the collective consciousness.¤ Link
