/r/LSD is a subreddit dedicated to Lysergic Acid Diethylamide-25, commonly known as LSD, a hallucinogenic drug. The subreddit features people talking about their experiences with the drug and sharing pictures of scenery or art they produced while on the drug. Some posts from people currently tripping show mundane images but are presented as if they're of grave importance. Some of these types of posts have spread outside the subreddit on Twitter as people find them unintentionally humorous.


/r/LSD was founded on April 28th, 2008.[1] The subreddit's description reads, "A kind, open-minded community dedicated to Lysergic Acid Diethylamide-25. NO sourcing! Please read all rules before posting!" The subreddit has gained over 363,000 members in the eleven years since it's been created. Top posts on the subreddit include a post by noodles0311[2] of a man taking two tabs of acid at Mecca, gaining over 13,000 points (shown below, left) and a piece of art by user Fluffoid[3] that gained over 12,000 points (shown below, right).

Online Presence

Several posts on the subreddit are pictures of mundane objects from people currently tripping. The posts present the objects as though they are incredible, leading to unintended humor. For example, one of the most popular posts in the subreddit is from user LatrFeraligatr[4] who posted a picture of a television remote control titled "Wow," gaining over 9,100 points (shown below, left). Posts like this have been shared outside the subreddit, particularly in the beginning of 2020. On January 12th, 2020, Twitter user @talltail[5] posted a compilation of such posts on Twitter, writing, "comedians can quit their jobs now bc they’ll never be as funny as an r/lsd post," gaining over 33,000 retweets and 165,000 likes (shown below, right). The surge in interest in /r/LSD posts led Vice[6] to post a compilation of posts from the subreddit. There has also been some backlash to the posts in the subreddit: user Vitenskapsmann and user Techfive have each posted that the content is irritating and have accused users doing it of trying to get "cheap upvotes."[7][8]
