More Recreational Drugs Medicines

After yesterday's news that marijuana may be useful against Alzheimers comes the news that scientists reckon psychedelic drugs might help treat OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). An American psychiatrist has been using psilocybin (mmm mushrooms!), and though he hasn't revealed the results yet, he has said they are promising. Whatever next? Crack to treat migraines? ;)

Talking of mushrooms - whatever happened to the famed Bungers' Fungus oF The Month Series?

According to this article, the US food and drug administration has already given the go ahead for soldiers to be included in a trial of ecstasy usage to combat stress and flashbacks. Not exactly sure whether it'll help with the flashbacks though:

If they gave it to all soldiers they'd might be less inclined to shoot each other.
