Liddy vs. Leary
The FBI raided Leary's Millbrook, N.Y., mansion, several times, attempting to stop the LSD experiments going on there, which it eventually succeeded at. In 1966, one of the raids was carried out by G. Gordon Liddy, who later became famous for being part of the Watergate scandal and was imprisoned for his role.
Leary himself was also imprisoned for several years for drug crimes and for escaping from prison. After both Leary and Liddy were released, they formed an unlikely partnership and began a discussion and performance tour together.
