“Special K” Might Cure Depression

Ketamine, an animal tranquilizer known by drug addicts around the country as “Special K,” might be a magic drug for curing depression. The drug actually restores neuron connections previously damaged by stress.

When you’re learning how to help a drug addict, don’t be surprised when some treatments you stumble upon involve the use of other substances.

Drugs History

The “Magic” of Magic Mushrooms

As marijuana legalization seems to be very likely in the near future, it’s time to consider the relative merits of another naturally growing drug that may have been prematurely illegalized. In this case, I’m talking about magic mushrooms. Recent studies have shown they may be able to help treat depression, cluster headaches and reduce obsessive fear of death.

While friends and family can do an intervention, the decision to seek drug abuse treatment remains the sole decision of the drug user himself.

As someone who has depression and migraines, I can tell you first hand that the drug does treat both symptoms for months at a time.

Does Avatar Have You Feeling Depressed?

CNN has reported that a number of people have been experiencing serious depression after viewing Avatar because they cannot live in the imaginary world seen on screen.

“Ever since I went to see ‘Avatar’ I have been depressed. Watching the wonderful world of Pandora and all the Na’vi made me want to be one of them. I can’t stop thinking about all the things that happened in the film and all of the tears and shivers I got from it,” some loser named Mike posted. “I even contemplate suicide thinking that if I do it I will be rebirthed in a world similar to Pandora and the everything is the same as in ‘Avatar.’ “

Here’s a tip: if you are feeling this low after seeing Avatar, you probably should just kill yourself because your life is obviously an empty void to start with.

Personally, I think Eeyore is more depressed since sleeping is only a symptom and he certainly has other depression symptoms as well. But other than that, this one is pretty great.

Magic Mushrooms: The Next Medicinal Marijuana?

Researchers have discovered that people who “shroom” can have an increased level of happiness as much as 14 months later, more on the study. For chronically depressed people (read:me), this could be a life saver…literally. I have in fact taken them when they were legal in Amsterdam and I have to say, I do think it really helped my mood for a long while afterwards.

Pot and prozac do not do this. Nothing legal in the US does this.

Personally, I think more “drugs” should be legal, as a person should be able to do whatever they want to their body. But when it comes to something like this, where it can have major benefits for the person taking it and they don’t hurt anyone by taking it, why the hell isn’t it legal?
