Rumor has it they were smoking it when they got their name the grateful dead. Look into it neat stuff. Both dmt and the story. And read up on some anecdotes in Dennis mcnallys book it has this story and a lot of other gems including a great story about the festival express train, a banjo, Jerry and a bear scratching his back on a tree!

Apparently they were smoking it someone opened a a dictionary and the term the grateful dead was there surrounded by a gold glowing with a description of the fable. It goes...a man pays the funeral costs or debt of recently deceased man who in turn is helped by the mans ghost further down the road at some important moment in life. There are many variations and it spans numerous cultures and oral histories. Strangers helping strangers,......

according to Rock Scully's book 'Living with the Dead' he mentions DMT a few times, on one occasion talking about the late 60s I believe (if not then very early 70s) he said they would sit around doing DMT and completley rearange the room when they came down from each trip to make it more interesting for the next one.

I forgot exacly where this was he was talking about but was some place the band was staying at.

very interesting book...
