Mushroom drug creates mystical experience: study

People who took an illegal drug made from mushrooms reported profound mystical experiences that led to behaviour changes lasting for weeks â.. all part of an experiment that recalls the psychedelic ’60s.
Many of the 36 volunteers rated their reaction to a single dose of the drug, called psilocybin, as one of the most meaningful or spiritually significant experiences of their lives. Some compared it to the birth of a child or the death of a parent.
Such comments “just seemed unbelievable,” said Roland Griffiths of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, the study’s lead author.
