Augustus "Owsley" Stanley III was an underground chemist who mass-produced LSD in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco. In 1965, he was believed to have produced and sold hundreds of thousands of LSD capsules. Owsley also created higher grades of the drug through laboratory experimentation. His production of acid was instrumental in launching the West Coast hippy movement of the 1960s.
