A number of Schedule I hallucinogenic substances are classified chemically as tryptamines. Most of these are found in nature but many, if not all, can be produced synthetically. Psilocybin (O-phosphoryl-4-hydroxy-N, N-ethyltryptamine) and psilocyn (4-hydroxy-N, N-dimethyltryptamine) are obtained from certain mushrooms indigenous to tropical and subtropical regions of South America, Mexico, and the United States. As pure chemicals at doses of 10 to 20 mg, these hallucinogens produce muscle relaxation, dilation of pupils, vivid visual and auditory distortions, and emotional disturbances. However, the effects produced by consuming preparations of dried or brewed mushrooms are far less predictable and largely depend on the particular mushrooms used and the age and preservation of the extract. There are many species of "magic" mushrooms that contain varying amounts of these tryptamines, as well as uncertain amounts of other chemicals. As a consequence, the hallucinogenic activity, as well as the extent of toxicity produced by various plant samples, are often unknown.
The historical mind-altering effects of psilocybin are described as a voyage to the spirit world. These hallucinogenic effects are similar to those of '___'; however, psilocybin is two hundred times less potent and also has a shorter duration time (Schwartz 1988). Common physiological reactions include muscular relaxation, coldness of the limbs and abdomen, and dilation of the pupils. A stronger dose includes vision and mental hallucinations and other sensory distortions. Use of the mushroom causes a feeling of disconnection from reality and an altered state of consciousness (Cumno 1994).

I don't see the NWO taking over for the simple reason that Americans own way to many firearms.

It wouldn't work. Socialism, communism, anarchy like states never work in large masses. They require small areas which is funny....small groups large government....spooky
the only real case of socialism that i have heard actually working well was some community in Scotland....it was an anarcho-syndocist commune where they took turns to act as a sort of executive officer for the week. all the decisions of that officer had to ratified at a special biweekly meeting.

how mistaken you are. you have been conditioned to believe that a drug is a drug is a drug. i would dare say that even though heroin and nicotine are both "drugs" they are not even worthy of comparison. likewise, the shroom. it 'wasn't called flesh of the gods' for nothing. shrooms are unlike your usual drugs which operate on your lower brain functions. shrooms directly impact your frontal lobes , the regions of higher thinking. The only thing in the universe that can stop time is the shroom. i am serious. tell me what you know about shrooms since you were so quick to condemn them. of course i know you would only say what you did out of sheer ignorance.
