I know someone who lost an eye the first time they smoked.... They just did it all wrong! would like to hear more of your story, cause it smells of shiite.


Yeah its def not true. I have never heard of someone losing a kidney doing mushrooms. Some of the uneducated people post on this thread is frustrating!

I have heard of someone doing in a kidney from eating the wrong kind of mushroom. (misidentified poisonous lookalike). Decriminalising shrooms and providing a safe place to purchase them would solve that issue.

Yeah they'll be legal until the first person jumps off a building thinking they can fly.

I'd need to see extensive, convincing evidence before I started to consider it has the potential to be a sole cause. Likewise, I'd need to see extensive, convincing evidence that it doesn't pose any risk to individuals with mental health issues (whether they know about it or not).

Either way, I'm not sure that making something a criminal act has an overall benefit in topics like this. I think it just puts it out of the sights and minds of the people that find it "wrong," and creates a black market with all the negative trappings that come with that.

Safest?

Tell that to the guy my brother worked with who lost a kidney the first time he tried them.

Safest? Yeah I think Cannabis is still king there.


So, you are saying it's dangerous because of an event that is very rare. You do realise that people can can a bad reaction to pretty much anything.

Saying that, I have never heard of a person losing a kidney after taking shrooms. Actually, there is no evidence that this can actually happen.


There is evidence. I am a witness to it. The guy losing a kidney is evidence.

Thing is not all 'shrooms' are created equal. Not like there is just one "magic mushroom" in existence.

Maybe some are safe, but I doubt they all are.

Well you would be wrong its not the king there. If you want your brother to have a read. Then peruse this.





Magic mushrooms are the safest recreational drug, study says



Only .2% of almost 10,000 people who reported taking psilocybin hallucinogenic mushrooms in 2016 reported that they needed emergency medical treatment, according to the annual Global Drug Survey. The survey, of more than 120,000 participants in 50 countries, found that the rates of emergency medical treatment for MDMA, '___', alcohol and coc aine were almost five times higher


eu.usatoday.com...


Oh good, a study.

That will get my brothers former co-workers kidney back and change that which I have witnessed with my own eyes over the years in relation to others using various drugs.

Don't get me wrong, I am fine with people putting whatever they want into their bodies as long as it does not impact anyone else.
My issue is people and studies (that are often biased in favour of the results the studier seeks) that say something is safe when I've seen first hand is not, well depending on a number of factors that a study might not account for.

You could have a study that says Cocaine is completely safe but uses measured doses and pharmaceutical grade product, while ignoring real world factors like quantity consumed, quality of the drug etc.

Then again we do live in a world where alcohol is fine because it is legal... or so people say to me when I point out the problems associated with it.
But no doubt there is a study out there that says booze is 110% safe out there also....

Oh well trip balls as much as you wish. Just make sure it doesn't cause issues in my life and we'll be good.

Sorry, but that is not evidence. Let's say it is true, does thst mean we should ban peanuts because some peoe have a bad allergic reaction when they eat them?

And if that still happens, then they should still be legal. Shall we make Alcohol illegal because of the millions of deaths it causes every year, not to mention the violence caused by alcohol!

I guess maybe its just me, but this wave of recreational drugs being legalized screams ushering in of the new age religion for a one world order and the brainwashing of the people...not to mention the possibility of the gov't secretly adding chemicals to these substances that harm us in some way...i dunno, i'm very skeptical

while that's wonderful on the decriminalization front, it worries me to think that folks might try driving around whilst tripping their faces off on shrooms. I think some education is in order for people on what might happen and how to safely do things like this. The feeling a first timer gets ins't something you can prepare for. (or so I've heard)


Look at the actual statute. It is NOT decriminalizing it. It just says a fine for first time possession or use. That's still a crime to use it and probably ups the penalty for second time possession or use (jail time). It's done as an attempt to get actual decriminalization off the ballot.

It's the first step. They will become legal.
