Watch a '50s Housewife Tripping on Acid: "Good Heavens!"

Back before LSD became associated with '60s counterculture, it was an experimental therapeutic drug used on people like this genteel housewife. "I can feel the air, I can see it," she says. "I can see all the molecules. I'm part of it. Can't you see it?"

My favorite moment is at 4:23 when the camera cuts to the non-tripping therapist's face.
