Friday 31st of May 1996Psychologist and writer Timothy Francis Leary known for his advocacy of psychedelic drugs dies of prostate cancer at the age of 76 in Los Angeles, California, United States.
The death of Francis from cancer comes as former U.S. Vice President Richard Perle is on the national news talking over him. The former Vice President, who worked alongside Perry for many years, had been diagnosed with breast cancer. Perry was only 56. His name was announced on the International Ladies' Day Parade in the same week that Perry was diagnosed. Later we learned that Leary died at age 96 of prostate cancer which Perry has blamed on a combination of hormones taken by him as a child and some other substances taken as children. Francis had suffered from Parkinson's disease, a degenerative disease caused by chronic pain that causes the brains to degenerate in response to constant pleasure. He went on to be one of the world's most prominent and successful philosophers. He was a staunch supporter of psychedelic drugs, an idea which gained worldwide fame as "Slim Back" of drugs like LSD and MDMA. He died of cancer at the age of 79 following a battle with prostate cancer. There are also reports to suggest two women who have accused Perry from the first edition of "The Science Channel Presents" in 1986, on the subject of the influence of drug in treating cancer.
