George Clinton Details The Nasty Effects Of Eating Soul Food On Acid

If you like to drop acid from time to time, as George Clinton did in the '60s, take the legend's advice: become a vegetarian.

Clinton stopped by HuffPost Live on Monday to chat about his new book, Brothas Be, Yo Like George, Ain't That Funkin' Kinda Hard on You?: A Memoir, and the following excerpt from the book came up:

They call LSD acid because that's exactly what it is. It blows up your digestive system and blows your ass out. We spent more time in the bathroom in those days than you could imagine, and there were hemorrhoids everywhere.

Clinton discussed the gross side effects with host Josh Zepps, saying that he wishes he would've changed his diet before delving into the drug.

"We were still ghetto kids eating soul food. You can't eat soul food and do acid," Clinton said with a laugh. "You really have to become vegetarian because it don't work on meat. Besides, tripping on the meat, looking at it while you're eating it, it comes out messed up. And like I said, we were pitiful with hemorrhoids."
