Short term effects from LSD/Acid are visual hallucinations, distorted sense of time, impulsive behaviors, and quickly shifting emotions. A high or trip from LSD/Acid can sometimes range from 6 to 10 hours. LSD/Acid can be absorbed through the skin so the Watertown Police Department would caution people from touching it.
