In part three of our series on MK-Ultra, we discuss The Merry Pranksters, comrades and followers of American author Ken Kesey in 1964. Who lived communally at Kesey's homes in California and Oregon, and are noted for the sociological significance of a lengthy road trip they took in the summer of 1964, traveling across the United States in a psychedelic painted school bus called Furthur, organizing parties and giving out LSD. But of course some of them volunteered as paid experimental subjects in a study conducted by the U.S. Army, aka Project MK-Ultra. Just like we saw in part two, of how the CIA's MK-Ultra program influenced the formation of The Grateful Dead, now we will also see how they influenced The Merry Pranksters and the Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test.
