Shrooms can be a very enlightening experience. You can question everything and they'll show you a path you won't soon forget. In my opinion shrooms are more of a spiritual tool than a drug. I'm not saying go out and eat a bag of magical mushrooms at all, but for some people it's really helpful for finding the answers hidden away by your mind.

Both answers are acceptable. However, 'dirt covered shit' is the best way to describe the flavor of mushrooms. You have to be dedicated and have strong gag control to get them down... Definitely not something anyone would eat by mistake.

The trick is to make tea with them. It still isn't a very pleasant taste, but it sure does beat eating them. They're mostly tasteless in my opinion. Try the tea, you'll thank me.

The funny thing is he's probably fine with people using opiates and benzos, both of which can cause serious damage to the body and are extremely addictive. You don't see people addicted to mushrooms or weed, but when doctors hand you prescriptions to pain killers and anti-anxiety medication they're throwing addiction straight into your mouth. Not saying mushrooms aren't bad, because they are, but they don''t cause nearly the damage or death toll that prescription pills do.

bfsd42 - My one-sided view on drug use? Drugs abuse is bad. I'm sorry, what other side is there? You're clearly a moron. Oops, there I go being judgmental and name calling again. McFeelii - Thank you very much for putting words in my mouth and making stupid fucking assumptions about me which are, of course, completely wrong. I don't condone drug abuse of any kind, including prescription medicine. I do think some people need prescription medication, but only under the strict observation and control of a medical professional. I'd advise you not to assume you know anything about me or what I think in the future. It'll save you from looking like an idiot again.

To answer your question, Doc: Peer pressure and because it CAN be fun, though obviously not in this case. The first time I smoked marijuana I was encouraged to do so by my boyfriend at the time. I hated it and thought I'd never want to do it again. Then he and his friends managed to convince me that marijuana is always bad the first time you tried it, and was much better the second time. It turned out they were right. Then I tried salvia and hated it. Then I tried salvia a second time...and it was awful again, so I didn't do it again. Then I tried spice and enjoyed it. I smoked spice a few more times and enjoyed it then too. Then one time, I unwittingly smoked some spice that was stronger than what I was used to, and it gave me the most intense attack of anxiety I've ever experienced in my life, before or since. My guess is that that's what happened to OP's roommate. He probably ate more shrooms than he usually does, or ate some that were unusually potent. I agree though that dug abuse of any kind is bad, and I think that some drugs are too powerful and dangerous to every be used safely. However, I think recreational drug use can be done responsibly. I don't smoke marijuana anymore, but I would on occasion if it were legal. I do drink alcohol though because I enjoy it, and while I admit I drink a little more than I should, I don't think it threatens to have a significant negative impact on my life...maybe just my waistline.

They key to anything, not just recreational illicit drug use, is moderation, 94. You shouldn't gorge yourself on sweets every day as you shouldn't binge on alcohol for days either. As long as you take care of your body and mind the way you always should, a little dip into temptation shouldn't have negative long term side effects. Unless of course you do something insanely stupid like drink ether or inhale keyboard cleaner, you should be ok in the long run.

I say that ANYTHING that mimics the action of another chemical in your body is potentially harmful/addictive/debilitating, even pot. If pot really were OK for us, we'd be naturally attracted to it from birth much like koalas to eucalyptus leaves.

111, I agree that marijuana is bad for us. We'd all be much healthier if we never used marijuana or alcohol. Same goes for caffeine, sugar, and greasy food, although they're not as bad as alcohol or marijuana. But then we wouldn't enjoy ourselves. The key to everything is moderation.

You just love acting all high and mighty don't cha, doc? Do you have proof that it scrambles your brains? No? Then stop spewing out rubbish, spreading more propaganda as if you know what you're actually talking about and then insulting people who are curious . Aslong as it's done in a safe environment, there shouldn't be anything wrong with it. People like you keep us from advancing research on illegal substances because of preconceived notions that they're all deadly.

#111, My cat is naturally attracted to pot the same way he's naturally attracted to catnip, coffee and tuna. He won't overeat, lick alcohol or eat chocolate. I even use him to smell-test iffy cold cuts and meat. If that honey ham or hydro is good enough for Miston, it's good enough for me!

I tries very hard to figure out how youd confuse peanut butter with shrooms. My conclusion: you were on shrooms while putting the shrooms on your sandwich. fuck I can only indulge myself in this for so long
