I'm looking at the molecule now, It is too big to try to reproduce here but I put a link to a picture below.
LSD has an aromatic indole connected to a bicyclic amine which is connected to the diethyl amine by an amide bond.
As far as bonds, you have double bonds, single bonds. Functional groups are the amine, the amide, and the indole.Source(s): http://terrystuff.files.wordpress.com/2008/08/lsd-... Also Erowid has a HUGE amount of information here: http://www.erowid.org/chemicals/lsd/lsd.shtml

The danger comes in its mind altering effects. You don't die from an overdose (at one point in time the gov was giving coke addicts powered acid instead to test the quantities that people can take) you die from crossing traffic because you think that you can or jumping through a 3rd story window because you are being chased by barbie dolls. There has been research that shows that some of acid's effects on the brain can be long term such as many types of chronic psychoses and neuroses.
