It is about a drawing that John Lennon's son made showing one of his classmates, Lucy, in the sky with diamonds for her eyes. It is not at all about a drug, it is just about a cute drawing Julian Lennon made in nursery school.

John Lennon's son Julian brought home a drawing he made of his school friend Lucy, with diamonds in the sky. When Lennon asked what the drawing was, Julian told him "It's Lucy, in the sky, with diamonds." Lennon wrote the song based on that, and drawing from his own memories of Alice Through the Looking Glass.

Lucy has been in the news recently; she's been ill for a long time. The original drawing has been posted online.

Unfortunately, Lucy died on what I think was September 28, 2009, which wasn't that long ago. Also, whoever wrote this answer, COULD YOU PLEASE TELL ME WHERE I CAN FIND THIS WEBSITE WITH THE PICTURE YOU SPEAK OF? I WOULD STRONGLY LIKE TO KNOW!!!

If you mean Lucy the fossil, she was named Lucy because the song was playing on a tape recorder while the discoverers (Donald Johanson, Maurice Taieb, Yves Coppens and Tom Gray) were inspecting the fossil back at their base.

John wrote the song because Julian came home with a picture. John said what's this and he said "It's Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds."
