A single dose or “hit” of acid will cost around $5-$20, with the effects lasting up to 24 hours.

Acid could be considered one of the cheapest, if not the cheapest, illicit drug available today when the length of the trip is considered along with the price.

Acid is not considered an addictive drug, most likely because the effects are so long-lasting and intense.
