Albert Hoffman passed away yesterday.


Albert died of a heart attack on Tuesday morning, April 29, at the age
of 102, fully lucid and deeply satisfied that LSD psychotherapy
research had been permitted to resume. He spoke several months before
he died about the renewal of LSD psychotherapy research, sponsored by
MAPS and conducted by Dr. Peter Gasser in patients with anxiety
associated with end-of-life issues, as the "fulfillment of my heart's
desire."

Albert died several months after his wife Anita died on December 20,
2007, demonstrating that their love affair of over 70 years was the
primary motivation for both of them to stay alive so long.
