Celebrities like their drugs. And when they do drugs, they have the same hallucinations and psychedelic experiences the rest of us do. Whether it's pot, acid, mushrooms, or more exotic drugs like ayahuasca or ketamine, celebs have tripping stories that range from pleasant hallucinations to horrifying images of death.

Sometimes, the experiences they have are transcendent, like Lindsey Lohan seeing herself reborn, or Brian Wilson's legendary audio hallucinations that helped him craft the music of the Beach Boys. Sometimes, they can be terribly destructive. And then there are the trips that are just too weird to put into words, like Nic Cage thinking his cat was his brother, or Jack Nicholson seeing the face of God.
