Here is a scientific study that states that individuals can indeed lose themselves for YEARS after large doses are taken:

“Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder”(HPPD), which appears to be particularly associated with LSD. Halpern and Pope [199] reviewed 20 quantitative studies from 1955 to 2001 and concluded that the occurrence of HPPD is very rare, but, when it occurs, it typically will have a limited course of months to a year, but can, in some even rarer cases, last for years with considerable morbidity.”

An abstract from NCBI about the similarities and differences between LSD-related psychotic breaks and schizophrenic patients.

Heres an article about how the government was using LSD on unsuspecting military personelle,( A TIME article) and another (from the NY Times) about how those being experimented on died, suffered psychological damage or went mad.

and a fact sheet from the DEA stating death or psychosis are indeed symptoms of LSD overdose. (I’m not sure I entirely believe the DEA because of their conflicts of interest in the “war on psychedelics”- but it is a synthetic. Lots of things, including water, in large enough quantities can kill you. )

Call it dubious, but do your research- most studies regarding LSD and related overdoses are indeed outside of the realms of US involvement due to its schedule 1 priority. LSD overdose is a real phenomenon. LSD-related deaths have occurred that were not related to self-harm.
