Timothy Leary: The Man Who Turned On America

Jan 6, 2024 | Lifestyle, Videos

Timothy Leary was an enthusiastic advocate of the exploration and experimentation of psychedelics, specifically LSD. Starting in 1960, Leary conducted numerous studies on the effects of psychedelics on prison inmates and subsequently himself and his colleagues. At this time, LSD was not yet prohibited by law and so Leary pursued his research undeterred. The psychedelic revolution that Leary helped to inspire continues to be documented today with the recent release of the documentary Timothy Leary’s Dead: A Journey Through His Life Legacy.

The film acts as a comprehensive overview of Leary’s life and career as an activist for human consciousness. It features interviews with some of his closest confidants who provide unique insight into the man behind the infamous phrase “turn on, tune in, drop out” as well as highlighting some lesser-known achievements such as his pioneering work in computer science and virtual reality.

For anyone interested in learning more about the impact that Timothy Leary had on our culture through his advocacy for psychoactive substances or just curious to discover more about one of the most important figures of the counterculture movement during the 1960s, Timothy Leary’s Dead: A Journey Through His Life Legacy is a must watch documentary. Featuring exclusive interviews with family members, friends, former colleagues, and students who were influenced by him—it provides an intimate look at how far-reaching an individual can be when they follow their passions fearlessly.
