Magic mushrooms are safest recreational drug, study says

Magic mushrooms are the safest recreational drug

"Death from toxicity is nearly unheard of with poisoning with more risky fungi being a much greater risk in terms of serious harms". Most wild mushrooms can be quite deadly if consumed, actually. Meanwhile, harder psychedelic drugs such as LSD and MDMA were nearly five times more likely to send users to the emergency room in 2016.

Likewise, 90.5-percent of the respondents were white, with the second-highest ethnicity being 3.2-percent 'mixed.' Of the volunteers, 79.3-percent reported having used illegal drugs at some point in their life, though only 2.3-percent of them said they'd tried an injected drug, and only 0.8-percent of them had done so in the past year before the survey.

Although an illegal drug, there have been studies released claiming that mushrooms have some medical benefits and could help people battling depression and anxiety, including a separate 2016 New York University study in which participants saw decreases in cancer-related demoralization and hopelessness, improved spiritual well-being and increased quality of life. "It's so hard to dose accurately when tabs you buy vary so widely".

He added that drug manufacturers are starting to incorporate novel super potent psychedelics such as NBOMe into tabs, which adds to the risk.

The results of the survey don't mean that the drugs it includes are harmless. The results are based on the percentage of people who sought emergency medical treatment after taking one of the drugs.

By looking at the rates of people seeking emergency medical treatment after using a drug, the researchers said that they can get a sense of the risk of acute harms associated with use of the various substances. These figures echo the data from the previous year's report. They've been particularly popular in prisons in the United Kingdom, where they've had a "devastating impact" and have been linked to deaths, serious illness and episodes of self-harm among inmates. With LSD or mushrooms, there is no toxicity and the effects wear after a few hours.

"Drug laws need to balance the positives and problems they can create in society and well crafted laws should nudge people to find the right balance for themselves", said Winstock. The same ones they showed you videos about in health class and told you that would think you could fly and would jump out a window and die if you took them (which my health class was LITERALLY told us years back).
