As part of a 1963 military experiment, a crew of British soldiers were each given LSD while in the field.  This hilarious video will show you what the military soon figured out-  LSD isn’t conducive for violence or war.

“Fifty minutes after taking the drug, radio communication had become difficult, if not impossible. But the men are still capable of sustained physical effort; however, constructive action was still attempted by those retaining a sense of responsibility despite their physical symptoms. But one hour and ten minutes after taking the drug, with one man climbing a tree to feed the birds, the troop commander gave up, admitting that he could no longer control himself or his men. He himself then relapsed into laughter.”
