15 bucks for a hit of acid? I remember when it was 4 bucks for a 4 way hit

SUMNER COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — A two-month long drug investigation in Sumner County culminates Tuesday when agents with the 18th Judicial Drug Task Force bust a man with acid, Psilocybin, and marijuana.

Agents say it was all mailed through the mail to a Gallatin man who recently moved from Bowling Green, Ky.

  1. A question for our Guru of all things hallucinogenic... is one fourth of a 4 way hit called a tab?
    Thanks in advance.

    1. Naw, a tab is the full hit. 4-way just describes the dosage/strength, supposedly a 4-way hit will get 4 people off, although I've never heard of anybody taking a fourth of a hit. We just used to eat the whole thing.

    2. Thank you. I never did the stuff but my brother did and I remember him talking about it with friends. That's where I heard the term tab.

    3. "Four-way windowpane", we called it in my day, Elmo, a bare handful of years after Kenny's. It was a hardened gel scored so as to break off into four pieces. Who we got it from determined hwether or how many pieces we broke it into.

    4. Ahh, yes, my misspent youth.
      A hit of windowpane in a bottle of Spanada, split with my 2 roommates.
      Then a bike ride down to the coast.
      Good times!

    5. A. Nony. Mous: The best trip I ever took was a hit of white blotter acid (from a Deadhead friend so it was very good) and a day spent at a Renaissance Faire.

  2. Last time I dropped it was many year ago. It was Buddha Belly blotter and it was mostly speed. No trip at all. Never did care much for blotter of any kind. I liked micro dots and of course magic mushrooms. If I did that stuff today my heart would blow outta my chest. Hell, I have psilocybin growing in the cow shit in my fields. Once in a while I pick one, smell it and think, nah and throw it over my shoulder.

    1. In my acid-dropping days, pretty much the '80s, most of what I got was blotter and most of it was good and trippy. Got some haaarrrd microdot a time or two. When I lived on the NW Gulf coast of Florida in the late '80s someone I knew would drive North a few miles into cow country to pick mushrooms, come back and brew them into tea. Always a good light show with them.

  5. So they had multiple agents working a small time guy that was selling stuff that's legal in other states? $125k bond, too?! We gotta get over this drug crap.

  6. Hey wirecutter,

    I hear that acid fucks up your brain permanently. "long-lasting effects on subjective well-being and personality."

    If that is true then what idiot would take it? Why not just put a hammer to the head. Not enought to kill one but just enough to give one brain damage. Which is what this stuff does.

    1. You still believe that garbage they taught you in health class? Seriously?
      I realized it was pure bullshit after this 'idiot' took dozens of trips and didn't have a single solitary flashback.

  7. The first time I dropped some was the summer of 78, 2 dollars a hit of Mr Natural. Stuff melting, trees flowing, man what a great time. But like Bright Eyes, if I tried it now differently serious health problems… lol

  8. I'm not sure I ever bought any; guys would turn you onto it just for neighborliness, I guess. In the '60s Texans referred to windowpane as "Clearlight," and I saw Orange Sunshine a couple of times in chunks. Cactus was still showing up mail-ordered through the mail from some guy in Laredo, and there was synthetic mescaline around too. Some hippies I met in Memphis turned me on to a baggie of mushrooms around '71 or -2; never saw blotter until I hit California in the middle '70s.

    Mescaline, mescaline,
    Prettiest dreams I've ever seen.
    Red and yellow, blue and green
    On Mescaline

  9. Bless St. Owsley. 8 way. And Mickey Mouse Wizard. And leaping dolphins. And blue barrel (maybe also called micro blue dot). Or so I'm told. Also never saw a dancing Mescalito, but I hear it was worth the puking.

  10. I've enjoyed these stories. Long time ago man. Different time, different scene. Also, so very young.

  11. The last time I did acid was 1980 (the year I graduated high school). I had tripped maybe a few dozen times before, but this shit... Withing 20 minutes, I was tripping more than I ever had in my life (usually took 45 minutes or more). 18 hours later, I was STILL tripping more that I ever had before.

    All I remember is that I realized the meaning of life and I spoke to god. I just wish I wrote that shit down!
