Airmen guarding America's nuclear missiles disciplined for using mind-altering drugs

More than a dozen airmen guarding America's nuclear missiles have been disciplined for using and selling mind-bending drugs, including LSD.

At least one admitted he could not have responded in a nuclear emergency, CBS reports.

The airmen are supposed to be on high alert at the airbase in Wyoming but documents obtained by CBS show some were just high.

"I absolutely just loved altering my mind," one air man testified in his court marshall.

Another said, "I didn't know if I was going to die that night," and admitted he would not have been able to his job that night if there had been a nuclear security emergency.

Between 2015 and 2016 more than a dozen nuclear base personnel were found to have abused LSD or other drugs including cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana.
