    A Darker Side To Woodstock

     

    All these years after the music, the mud, and the "trip tents", the legacy of Woodstock lives on.

     

     

     

     

     

    Woodstock festival organizers erected so-called "bad Trip tents" Concertgoers who were experiencing bad LSD trips came to, or were brought to the tents in order to work through the bad trip.  Medical personnel and members of the Hog Farm commune manned the tents. At one point during the weekend, stage announcer Chip Monk uttered the famous PSA: "The warning that I recieved, you may take it with however many grains of salt as you wish, that the brown acid that they're circulating around us is not specifically too good. It's suggested that you stay away from that, but it's your own trip so, be my guest."

     

    We are all fully aware that there was massive drug use at woodstock, however you really don't hear too much of the darker side of it. I have brought you one of the dark issues here.
