After emerging from drug-induced hallucinations, people often describe their experiences as mystical and introspectively illuminating. But psychedelic mushrooms, peyote, LSD and related drugs can also cause confusion, paranoia and emotional angst raising questions about whether they have any long-term impact on mental health.
A new study nixes those worries. Taking a hallucinogenic trip, two Norwegian researchers found, does not raise the risk of psychological distress, psychotic symptoms, panic attacks, social phobias, depression, PTSD or other mental illnesses.

Phucking bullshit! ... The odd trip once a year - ok... perhaps no long term trouble, but studies like this send out the wrong messages for sure.
