Monck also made announcements about bad drugs, saying the brown acid was circulating around, and it wasn’t too good. He suggested that they stay away from it and also get down from the towers because of the electrical danger.

Drugs were everywhere at Woodstock, and several people even stated that their drinks and the ice in the drinks were spiked with acid. In addition, the use of psychedelic drugs caused several ‘freak-outs,’ especially on the first night.
