According to new research from the Global Drug Survey, there’s one drug far safer than any other. That drug may surprise you.Safer, even, than smoking weed, it turns out psychedelic mushrooms are the safest recreational drug you can take.
The survey, of more than 120,000 people in 50 countries, showed surprisingly results.
For instance, of the more than 12,000 people who said they did shrooms in 2016, only 0.2 percent needed emergency medical care afterward – a rate substantially lower than any other drug, and even three times lower than the next safest drug, marijuana.
Magic mushrooms are one of the safest drugs in the world. Death from toxicity is almost unheard of with poisoning with more dangerous fungi being a much greater risk in terms of serious harms.
For those worried about a bad trip, Winstock has two pieces of advice: don’t combine shrooms with any other drugs or alcohol, and use them in a safe place with trusted company, both of which reduce the likelihood of disorientation, injury, or a panic attack.
