"Larry is, like, a genius," Maria Moon says. "That's why I'm his art slave. I feel like I'm working for Picasso or something. His mind is, like, almost too prolific. " She stands in the lobby of Pulsations nightclub in Glen Mills, wearing shorts and a Minnie Mouse T-shirt, holding an epoxied duck that has human arms and legs and is wearing bronzed baby shoes. She strokes the duck's back affectionately, gazing at it through big brown eyes behind sunglasses with heart-shaped lenses.

Use of the hallucinogenic drug LSD has been on the rise among people in the Navy as a result of a six-year crackdown by the service on other illegal drugs. The Navy, which operates the country's largest drug-testing program, analyzes urine samples from the 800,000 people under its administration an average of 2 1/2 times a year. Though the Navy's drug-testing laboratories check for the presence of six common classes of illegal drugs, they have lacked a confirmatory test that would allow them to test for evidence of LSD. However, naval researchers recently developed a procedure that will allow the service to test for LSD. The method could be adopted by private employers to allow more of them to test for LSD, too. Over the last few years, drug users in the Navy seem to have recognized the blind spot in the testing program and switched to the hallucinogen to take advantage of the situation.

Like a stubborn weed, a leaflet with a dire but unsubstantiated warning is again cropping up on police station walls and school bulletin boards around the area. The leaflet reads: "Warning to Parents - A form of tattoo called the 'Blue Star' is being sold to school children. Description: It is a small sheet of paper containing 'Blue Stars.' They are the size of pencil erasers. Each star is soaked with LSD. " "We go through this every year," Mary Vaira, a spokeswoman with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration in Philadelphia, said yesterday.

Montgomery County District Attorney Michael D. Marino stood before reporters in the Norristown courthouse yesterday, gingerly holding with tweezers a flimsy piece of paper festooned with dancing purple teddy bears. For years, leaflets warning parents to beware of lick-and-stick kiddie stamps and tattoos soaked with LSD have circulated at suburban schools. For years, authorities have dismissed the reports as rumors. No more. Now, Marino said, here was the real thing - purchased by an undercover police officer last month in Conshohocken.

A freshman at Upper Merion Area High School has been arrested after school officials found individually wrapped tabs of LSD inside her book bag. Police say the arrest Friday afternoon, which has become the talk of the school, was part of a wider investigation of drug use inside the district's middle and high schools, and they expect more arrests. "I'd like to say that (drug use) is confined to small pockets of students," said Lt. Ronald Fonock. "However, this investigation is indicating that this goes beyond small pockets and has gone into the general student population.

THEY JOSTLED Dock Ellis awake around noon, the story goes, their voices shrill with anxiety. He was in Los Angeles and his team, the Pittsburgh Pirates, was in San Diego, playing that night. "You're pitching today," they yelped. "Noooo," Ellis moaned. "What happened to yesterday?" Yesterday was an off day, so he'd gotten permission to go home, to Gardena, Calif. Took some LSD, hopped into a rental car, knowing the drug would kick in when he got to Los Angeles. Took some more when he got there, making everything seem kinder, gentler, swirling in a technicolor glaze.

MOBILE, Ala. - A nude University of South Alabama freshman had taken LSD and assaulted others before he chased the campus police officer who fatally shot him, authorities said Tuesday, though the student wasn't armed and didn't touch the officer. Mobile County Sheriff Sam Cochran said at a news conference that Gil Collar, 18, took the potent hallucinogen during a music festival Saturday before assaulting two people in vehicles and attempting to bite a woman's arm. Authorities said Collar then went to the campus police headquarters, where he was shot by university police officer Trevis Austin.

WHILE THOUSANDS gathered at a rally for Jesus on Independence Mall on Sunday, psychedelic Jesus blotter paper was on sale at an entirely different sort of gathering on the University of Pennsylvania campus. Psychedemia, a three-day academic conference on "visionary art and psychedelic culture," brought several hundred researchers, artists and students to Penn over the weekend to discuss the evolving state of psychedelics in the world. And although the event did feature tables filled with inactive LSD blotter paper, vivid paintings of shamans and dragons and plenty of people with dreadlocked hair, tied-dyed shirts and conspiracy theories, it was the hard science behind recent psychedelic research that helped the conference get the approval of Penn's Perelman School of Medicine.

This story has been updated. A naked man shot and killed by Miami police on Saturday when he reportedly refused to stop eating the face of another man wearing only a shirt may have been high on bath salts. Police have theorized that the "cannibal man," Rudy Eugene, may have been hallucinating as a result of a drug-induced mania, according to reports. Eugene may have suffered from an overdose of bath salts, which some have described as the "new LSD" and are pushed as having properties similar to cocaine and methamphetamine on users, reports said.

IT TOOK A POLICE battering ram to bust down the door of the West Philadelphia apartment. Once inside, police discovered a colorful cache of psychedelic drugs — enough LSD to open thousands of "doors of perception" for six to eight hours at a time.   The Jan. 31 raid appeared to be a true flashback to a bygone era, with the federal Drug Enforcement Administration calling the 9,500 hits of LSD on tie-dyed images of Homer Simpson and Jerry Garcia an "anomaly" in Philadelphia.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - He had smoked pot and dropped LSD. He could be a pain to work with. He twisted the truth at times. Yet according to an FBI background file released Thursday, Apple cofounder and former CEO Steve Jobs would still have made a fine presidential appointee. The 1991 background check was conducted when President George H.W. Bush was considering Jobs for a spot on the President's Export Council, a position he did not get. And while the file contains little information about Jobs not already made public, the interviews conducted when Jobs first left Apple to start his own company provide a fresh and at times humorous sketch of the tech icon who died of cancer last fall.

A DREXEL University student, busted on marijuana and gun charges two weeks ago in Montgomery County, snitched on his dealer and led police to an LSD ring allegedly being run near the campus in West Philadelphia, authorities said yesterday. Five men - including two Drexel students - were busted in a drug ring that raked in between $5,000 and $15,000 a week in LSD sales, the District Attorney's Office said. The student arrested two weeks ago in Upper Moreland Township told police that he had information on a drug ring, and let detectives in the D.A.'s office record phone conversations between him and his dealer, also a Drexel student, said Tasha Jamerson, the D.A.'s spokeswoman.
