Study finds mushrooms are the safest recreational drug








According to a new study by Global Drug Survey, Magic mushrooms are the safest recreational drug.

Out of the 12000 people who took psilocybin hallucinogenic mushrooms in 2016, only 0.2% of them needed emergency medical treatment.

 “Magic mushrooms are one of the safest drugs in the world,” says Adam Winstock, founder of the Global Drug Survey and consultant addiction psychiatrist.

“Death from toxicity is almost unheard of with poisoning with more dangerous fungi being a much greater risk in terms of serious harms,” he says.

 The Global Drug Survey 2017, which was the biggest annual drug survey with  120,000 participants in 50 countries found that the rates of emergency medical treatment for cocaine, alcohol, MDMA, and LSD were almost five times higher.




“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 in an interview to the Guardian.

“People don’t tend to abuse psychedelics, they don’t get dependent, they don’t rot every organ from head to toe, and many would cite their impact upon their life as profound and positive. But you need to know how to use them.”
