Roseman, along with Bernard Copley, produced the first underground LSD and they were the subject of the first acid bust in America after being arrested by undercover agents for offering to sell three pints of it for $15,000. The case centred around three sales of LSD in February, March and April 1963, one of them to Myron Stolaroff, who was conducting clinical studies into the use of LSD. After a 10-day trial the Judge reached a guilty verdict and sent both to prison (Copley later died in jail).
