The Rollicking Life Of Larry Hagman


Larry Hagman on Psychedelic Drugs
Sunday, 14 August 2011 13:36

Veteran TV actor Larry Hagman took his share of drugs during the '60s. Encouraged by Jack Nicholson, Hagman, who played J.R. Ewing on Dallas, began to regularly smoke marijuana. Musician David Crosby introduced him to LSD, which Hagman calls "such a profound experience that it changed my pattern of life and my way of thinking.Ē

In today's New York Times, he relates a story about taking mescaline on an Indian reservation:

"Well, I was in a hut with about 10 young Indian boys. I took this stuff and got real sick, but after a while that passed, and I looked down and I had birdís claws, birdís feet and fur instead of feathers. I thought, Well, golly, this is interesting. I flew around the hut, and then I flew through the wall and flew around the reservation and came back. It was a heavy-duty spiritual thing. I wouldnít particularly want to do it again, but it was a wonderful experience. Iím sure it was an out-of-body experience. And I enjoyed flying too...

"For me, gave me great compassion and a love of everything. It comes into play in your permanent psyche."
