From a purely, err, "hypothetical" viewpoint, what are the majors dangers of doing acid? In what type of environment should it be done? Any precautions that should be taken?

Keep in mind this is purely hypothetical :P.

First off, I would suggest removing the possibility of anyone that makes you uncomfortable being around you while you do it. Go somewhere where you can chill for the whole night without worrying about parents coming home, roommates, etc. Somewhere where you can relax without worry. A stranger who is fun is preferable to a good friend who tends to stress you out. Try not to drive because you don't want to see police.

Otherwise, I've been in some hairy situations with the police and been fine while tripping... It all depends on what makes you nervous personally. You might experience 45 minutes or so of absolute glee, and then experience a negative mood shift (drugs tend to operate in distinct phases, not smooth transitions). The drug itself is not going to harm you, but you can have an emotional breakdown if you are not in control of yourself. Paranoia, depression... these things can be a problem for me personally, as my family has a history of these symptoms. For others it could be whatever is unstable about them mentally (recent break-up, anger, etc.). If there's something bothering you at the time, don't do it - you can only expect the drug to amplify your feelings. So if you've set the night up to be a fun success, you should be good because those will be the feelings you are amplifying.

The only thing about the drug that is dangerous is the possibility of you deciding there is something to be worried about. If you are apprehensive about it being 'dangerous' then don't bother, because once you start tripping there is no turning back and that feeling of helplessness is what will kill you. What you want to do is maintain that hunger for the effects you expect. You'll know what I mean once you do it. If you're hoping it doesn't hit you that much, you will be in trouble and it probably will start to become overwhelming. But if you welcome it and hope for more of the effects, they will tend to level out. The last time I tripped, for example, there was no middle ground: I was sitting in the forest thinking about how much I wished it would just subside a bit so I could regain my emotional integrity and then literally a minute later it started to wear off and I was so disappointed that it did (although that was mushies not acid).

Acid has no physical affect on your body and in no way alters your physiology.

It's purely a psychological drug. See Rob1billion's post for more detail.

thats how my acid trips always worked out. kind of annoying. looking back though, i definitely enjoyed it. as mentioned, just avoid putting yourself in a situation where you feel stressed out and you should be good.
evidently i only come to ddo to avoid doing homework...

Then why do we have to eat a physical substance to get the effects?

Ah, right..... "hypothetical." ;)

The dangers are if you were to take too much, you'd go in to a permanent psychosis. Hippie justice is called "spinning." Since they tend to be pacifists, to get retribution they'll instead dump half a vile of acid on your head. I think that is unimaginably cruel.

This is all really good advice.

The best advice though, is don't do it at all.

You're going to want to listen to this song, alone, in a dark room, late at night, when you trip. It will be amazing, I promise.

The biggest dangers are environmental, so don't put yourself in a position to do anything dangerous, and preferable have a responsible sober person present. There is also a risk of HPPD (Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder), which is uncommon, usually seen in heavy psychedelic users, and usually remits with abstinence.

When I trip with a bunch of people (especially those I don't know) I usually keep sedatives on hand in case anyone has some kind of anxiety reaction, which can ruin the mood for everyone. Atypical antipsychotics can also be used to pretty much completley abort a trip if that's what you're looking for. In my experience people who are inexperienced/apprehensive are easily reassured when they know that they can just ask me to sedate them or end the experience at will, although it's not something I've ever had to do. I've personally had difficult psychedelic experiences but it was definitley worth just waiting it out for the learning experience.

False, there are many physiological effects, although they vary from person to person and are almost never serious. Life threatening overdose from LSD is possible (and has happened) but is not a serious risk to someone who isn't casually handling massive quantities.

False, but hopefully this was a joke.

Again, hopefully a joke.
