LSD is classified as a Schedule I controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act. As a Schedule I drug, it has been determined to have a high risk of abuse, a high likelihood of risk of addiction, and has no legitimate medical purpose. Due to its classification as a Schedule I drug, there is no legal way to be in possession of LSD.
In addition to the jail time and money penalties you could face if you are charged with possession of LSD, you could also be penalized with the forfeiture of your vehicle if you are found to have used it in the sale or delivery of drugs. Under Wisconsin Asset Forfeiture laws, the State can request the mandatory forfeiture of any item used in the sale of illegal drugs. If you are convicted of using your car in the act of selling LSD and the State asks the court to order your car forfeited, the court must order it. The court does not have the discretion to decide not to forfeit your car. Unfortunately, your income level, the value of the car, and access to other means of transportation will have no impact on the decision of the court whether to forfeit your car. Under Wisconsin statutes, they must do so if it is requested.

How to beat an LSD charge
There can be many possible ways to beat an LSD charge. To convict you of possession of LSD, the State would have to prove that you were in possession of the substance, and you knew or believed the substance was LSD. There can be several issues that arise for the state when attempting to prove possession. If the drugs are found in a common area of a home or vehicle, the State could have difficulty proving that you were in knowing possession of the item.
If you are charged with possession of LSD after the police search your car following a traffic stop, it is possible that there could be legal challenges to the search of your vehicle. The police must have a legal reason to stop your vehicle and search it. If the police do not have the legal reason, the search of your vehicle may be ruled illegal, and the evidence found following that search could be ruled inadmissible against you. If the State cannot use the drugs found during the search, they cannot convict you of being in possession of those drugs.
