lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) manufacturing (Chemist)
William Leonard Pickard (born October 21, 1945 in DeKalb County, Georgia) is one of two people convicted in the largest lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) manufacturing case in history. In 2000, while moving their LSD laboratory, Pickard and Clyde Apperson were pulled over while driving a Ryder rental truck and a follow car. The laboratory had been stored near a renovated Atlas-E missile silo near Wamego, Kansas but the two men had never actually produced LSD there. One of the men intimately involved in the case but not charged due to his cooperation, Gordon Todd Skinner, owned the property where the laboratory equipment was stored. Claiming that he was concerned about a possible plot of Pickard's to murder a supplier of an LSD precursor, Skinner initially approached the Department of Justice and then assisted the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in their subsequent investigation. According to court testimony, Pickard's lab produced a kilogram of LSD approximately every five weeks for short periods. Despite criticism for their methodology, the DEA contends that following their arrest there was a 90% drop in the availability of LSD worldwide. Pickard himself has long denied these claims; he points to data from the Drug Abuse Monitoring Network indicating that there was actually an increase of LSD availability from 2003 to 2006.
