James Coburn took 200 micrograms
on December 10,1959 - his first trip. In his paperwork, he gave his reason
for volunteering: "to gauge present consciousness (where I am to where
I can possibly go)." Now 69 and still acting, Coburn looks back fondly
on his session with Oscar
Janiger. "It was phenomenal," he says. "I loved it. LSD really
woke me up to seeing the world with a depth of objectivity. Even
though it was a subjective
experience, it opened your mind to seeing things in new ways, in a new
depth." Coburn also credits his LSD session with helping him occupationally.
"One of the great things about LSD is that it does stimulate your imagination.
And it frees you from fears of certain kinds."
