Data from a government-sponsored survey indicates that psychedelic drugs like LSD, magic mushrooms, and peyote do not increase a person’s risk of developing mental health problems.

“Everything has some potential for negative effects, but psychedelic use is overall considered to pose a very low risk to the individual and to society,” clinical psychologist Pål-Ørjan Johansen of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology said. “Psychedelics can elicit temporary feelings of anxiety and confusion, but accidents leading to serious injury are extremely rare.”

The study, published online Tuesday in PLoS One, used data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health survey to investigate psychedelic drug use and mental health problems. The survey is administered annually by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), a branch of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

LSD is good for you, say Norway researchers

Tales of debilitating acid flash-backs and permanently frazzled synapses are just myths, according to a new scientific report which concludes LSD use may even be beneficial.

"There were no significant associations between lifetime use of any psychedelics, or use of LSD in the past year, and increased rate of any of the mental health outcomes," Pål-Ørjan Johansen and Teri Krebs from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim concluded in their study published in the PLOS One journal on Tuesday.

"Rather, in several cases psychedelic use was associated with a lower rate of mental health problems."

lol.gif @ psychedelic Mr. Burns. It's never harmed anyone I've known, and in fact quite the opposite.
I've had friends that have told me they were never truly together until they dropped acid or mushrooms.
