Psychedelics in popular culture
There exist many examples of Psychedelics in popular culture. The psychedelic experience has had a strong effect on many genres of popular music, and psychedelic drug references are common in movies, books, and in popular music.
LSD: Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home has a scene where Admiral Kirk tells a woman in 1986 that Spock did a little too much LDS in the 60's. The woman rolls her eyes at him. This was a reference to LSD, not The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Beatles song "Tomorrow Never Knows" is a musical take on Timothy Leary's analogy between the LSD experience and the passage from death through to reincarnation described in the Tibetan Book of the Dead.
