And you thought pot was the "new thing?" A new study shows that magic mushrooms are safer than other recreational drugs. The 2017 Global Drug Survey reports that only point-two-percent of ten thousand people who took hallucinogenic mushrooms last year had reactions that required medical treatment.
People who used LSD were five times more likely to seek medical treatment. The study said that's mostly because it's difficult to accurately dose LSD. That number was slightly higher for those who used MDMA, commonly known as ecstasy.
The results are based on the percentage of people who sought emergency medical treatment after taking one of the drugs.
- One More Thing! The survey is a fascinating read. Check out this global comparison as to ‘who a smokes a joint within 5 minutes / 1 hour of waking.’
