Psychedelic mushrooms work their magic

Scientists are taking a second look at so-called magic mushrooms, a staple of 1960s hippie culture, to see if they do open a pathway to the divine.

Or, failing that, to help with addictions or terminally ill patients fighting depression and anxiety.

The active ingredient in the mushrooms is the psilocybin, a hallucinogen.

"This is a class of compounds, the classical hallucinogens, for which research has been in the deep freeze for about 40 years," said Dr. Roland Griffiths of Johns Hopkins University in the United States.

His new study was published Tuesday by the journal Psychopharmacology ...

last time i did mushrooms i decided to eat some shark bites. if you guys remember those, they were little gummy fruit snacks. well anyways i coughed one up and it hit the back of my front tooth. which lead to me thinking all my teeth were falling out..

yada yada yada, worst 8 hours of my life.

I've never done shrooms myself, but I know lots of people who have had both good and bad trips from them, a friend of mine tried to committ suicide while on a bad trip...but I don't think that should disqualify them from being looked at for potential medical benefits. When taken in a safe setting and administered by a professional physician, there is almost no risk.

There is absolutely no reason why they shouldn't be exploring possible benefits of mushrooms (and other psychadelics).

At least one-third of the volunteers experienced a bad trip, including feelings of intense fear and paranoia, even though they took it under controlled conditions.
