What are people's thoughts on psychedelics? Personally it feels like without them I wouldn't have such an open mind; or be able to admit faults and let go of things so easily if not for the experience of shedding my ego during a trip that seems to have stuck with me since. Just wondering, I know the biggest pitfall for drug use is that the experience is purely subjective, so would be interested in hearing opinions and lessons learned, whether good or bad. Have a great day!

LSD makes one view reality in a whole different light.
Mescaline makes one laugh at authority.
And psilocyn makes little bunny rabbits look like great big bunny rabbits.
All have a 'subversive' effect on young, restless minds.

I believe that people should be able to do whatever they want to their bodies as long as it doesn't effect another. That being said, I do like the psychedelic experience, in extreme moderation. Usually only taking part in them once every few years. As somebody previously said, Mushrooms are near 100 percent safe, from a toxicity stand point. The RESPONSIBILITY of using them is all on you and how you choose to prepare yourself for the trip, safe environment and so on... Also, if you can cook Mac-and-Cheese, you can grow your own and know 100 percent what your getting. Somebody who isnt me has done it, repeatedly.

I'd like to try this experience. I never have.

The main problem as I see it is that it's difficult to safely and legally obtain them. It is easy to get something that's "cut" or impure or not the dosage you think it is. I would like to see them legalized and properly manufactured.

There's a lot of literature out there on "micro-dosing" for various benefits; these should be researched properly. I've heard for example that very small doses of LSD -- a bit shy of when you start perceiving your surroundings as "brightening" -- is supposed to improve depression when nothing else works, and is supposed to be good for improving focus and creativity. These claims should be substantiated.

Life has been way more fun and hilarious because of psychedelics. They gave me a much greater appreciation of the absurd, music, sex and popcorn ceilings.

I never had any problems with LSD. That was in the early 70s. It certainly made me less fearful and apprehensive of the unknown, kept my mind open to new experiences and created a bond with the people who were with me then.
Now I have more to worry about. my body is broken and now presents a liability. But I would probably eat some mushrooms. I have fond memories of the incredible sense o f well being.

first - shrooms are the safest of the recreational drugs. safer even than marijuana. I think that in a few decades we'll discover that a proper recuperation from depression starts with a shroom trip. I also believe such a trip will be a standard prescription for a variety of mental ills and psych maintenance.
