Dr. Alexander Shulgin passed away from hepatic cancer on June 2, 2014 at the age of 88.
He was a chemist...medicinal chemist...pharmacologist...psychopharmacologist...
Though, Shulgin was more than just a title. He was a brilliant human being.
I won't go into detail as others have written much more beautiful things than I ever could.
Psychedelic Frontier wrote an excellent piece on Shulgin.
Michael Power also wrote a great obituary piece over at the Guardian.
Ethan Brown wrote a really nice piece at AlJazeera America.
Dr. Alexander Shulgin you may now be gone, but your legacy will never be forgotten.
