10 Stupid, But Common Drug Myths

No, mushrooms don’t make your brain bleed, selling LSD can’t get you arrested for murder and LSD doesn’t stay in your spinal fluid forever. Read the rest of the myths and the truth here.

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.

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?
