Albert Hofmann, a research chemist for Sandoz Laboratories, has to leave work early because of dizziness and other strange feelings. He suspects that it may be due to an accidental absorption of LSD-25 through his fingers, making this the first LSD trip in history.

Three days later Hofmann will deliberately ingest some LSD to confirm the origins and nature of the experiences.
