    Very interesting indeed. But I think that people inclined to enjoy psychedelic drugs tend to be more introspective and self aware to being with.

    That's a true statement if I ever heard one. If I know a person well enough I can generally tell before the topic's even been brought up whether or not it would likely be something for them. Some people were just not made for psychedelics, we've all seen those people trip and get turned off for life or just really dislike it or what have you.

    Was crazy before I started. Unfortunately can't blame it on the drugs.

    It's just nice to see a large academic study show these drugs are actually quite safe. Now if we could just have the last 40ish years of lost research back it'd be great.

    That's a matter of opinion, man. Haha, just kidding. Yeah, I feel like I've only strengthened mentally since beginning my use, it's had no negative affects whatsoever from what I can tell. This study just pointed out the obvious because someone had to. And I gotta say, I'm damn glad it did

    We should discuss Syd Barett and Roky Erikson a bit I think. If you all have not seen the documentary on Syd, and the one on Roky, you should. These two people could of had a predisposition for mental illness and the drugs only sped the process or coincidentally they were mentally ill and took LSD. Roky was taking mescaline for breakfast shrooms for lunch and LSD for dinner as the documentary depicts.......... mentioning two rockstars is not a scientific study but I will repeat what needs to be said....Everything in moderation friends...... You CAN lose your shit on psychedelics. practice safe trippin

    My experience is people don't start taking drugs like that unless something is wrong.
