New York - People who took an illegal drug made from mushrooms reported profound mystical experiences that led to behaviour changes lasting for weeks, as part of an experiment that recalls the psychedelic '60s.
seems one of these days you can go get your schroom fix at the shrink :)

Personally though one of my most frightning experiences was Hawain schrooms in Amsterdam .... never AGIAN!

yeah i haven't tried shrooms but messed around with acid a bit.. chuck in some introspection and wow it really does become a spiritual experience. Stopped it all a year ago after a rather large dose of DOB had me 'seeing god' for a couple of hours followed by intense paranoia and depression that lasted a couple of weeks. Easily the best and worst experience of my life, which made everything else look extremely pointless hence the depression.. the only drug i take now is meditation lol

My opinion: Thanks to the USA govt of yesteryear, hallucinogenic drugs are incredibly underestimated as a tool that could be used for the benefit of mankind.

The potential these drugs have to give us knowledge about the brain, personality, nature/nurture, socialisation, psychiatric disorders and just the human condition in general is enormous. But almost all research with these drugs has been cut off since the late 1960s/early 1970s.

I don't think it's right to view hallucinogenic drugs as drugs which have no medical or social benefits. The state of suggestability that such drugs provoke can be used in an enormous number of ways, from treating and learning about Disassociative Identity Disorder (formerly Multiple-Personality Disorder), Obesssive-Compulsive Disorder, phobias, depression. The fact that such drugs appear to 'strip away' socially conditioned responses to stimuli is a total social goldmine to those smart enough to recognise this, because this give us insight into why people are like they are and how behaviour can be changed or modified.

Furthermore insight into the human brain and human condition has multiple applications in terms of politics, conflict resolution, class conflict, identity issues, in-group and out-group bias, violence in society, groupthink and, more generally the social evolution/social trajectory of humanity. On a smaller scale, this all undoubtedly has valuble uses in domains as widely removed from each other as business, prison reform, education, parenting, and so on.

It is beyond my comprehension why there is such heavy handedness on research with these drugs.

I'm not saying everyone should be able to buy mescaline at their corner cafe, but for controlled research purposes at least these drugs should be widely studied with few limits.

I'm amazed how drugs like Prozac and Ritalin and certain barbiturates and some stimulants like psudoephredrine are happily passed out, often without prescription, without a second thought. Yet thanks to the government-sanctioned profit-making behind these drugs, we don't tend to view these drugs as the 'bad' ones. IMHO, these sorts of drugs have more in common with the real bad drugs like cocaine, tik and cat. In fact, the latter two are manufactured from commonly available flu and diet drugs. They make crystal meth from a flu drug, yet a hallucinogenic drug that prompts intense self-inspection is the 'bad' one. Ridiculous.

I'd sooner give my kids magic mushrooms than Ritalin, which is basically cocaine as it works off the same receptors but just uses different 'keys' to unlock those receptors.

The drug companies and government are pulling one over our eyes here, and we should wake up.

my dog used to have epilepsy ...
around once a month I would go to the vet and pick up more of his pills (normally a bag of around 60 pills)
"Hello mr Vet, dog has run out of pills, can we have more pls" ... "sure, here you go"
phenobarbitone.
:)
Lucky me.
me and the dog were good friends.

I was real upset when the dog died. no more pills

lol i think you have to be a special kind of person to like schrooms. the trip was a bit too intense for me. (it was a couple of years ago). After the schrooms i stopped all hard drugs though so I guess it was a good thing :)

Oh and luckily never did "special K" heard some bad stories lol

well with shrooms you have to experiemnt with doses. maybe you had too much... cuz trust me if anyone has too much it's gonna be a pretty intense experience.

once i had to much lsd and had the mind farked experience of synesthesia. basicly where sense switch so what you hear is what you see and vice versa. intense at the time, afterward... pretty rewarding.

but still - just say no to drugs!

I took shrooms once and it was pretty whack.

I could stick my arm through a car door window, I could rewind events in my mind and watch them again, and play cassette tapes through my teeth.

Of course, it was only me who remembered those incredible skills, so I decided I may just have been seeing things ...
