    Well... non-addictive andpretty much impossible to die from if you have the right ones.

    They are natural, practically impossible to die from, non toxic, what else. They are amazing! I dont think they should be illegal because they are natural. No chemical synthesis needs to be done to make them. This is the first reason and best reason I think. Im pretty drunk just bare with me. Also there is basically no potential for addiction. Pyschological (doubtfully), and physical (no chance). Shrooms have been around forever and people have been using shrooms forever. I could hint at the hypothesis that most religions and languages stem from the use of the mushroom, but that is for another time and place all together. I sugest you check out a book called Food of the Gods, by Terrance McKena. Its a good read and it will give you a lot of insight as to why magic mushrooms shouldnt be illegal.

    Non-addictive, very low health risk are both good arguments. Also, that
    users of magic mushrooms typically pose very little threat to other
    people.

    Less damage than tobacco, alcohol. Much less recorded fatalities than tobacco, alcohol.

    Both the EU and the UN assessed psilocybe mushrooms to be unharmfull, causing no nuisance, no crime, no agression, not addictive, etc., etc... Note that the UN even reconsidered her opinion since the matter was so touchy for some governments. And even while under this political pressure to reconsider their view, they still feel no need to ban psilocybe mushrooms. I rest my case.

    Another good argument would be that, in the rare cases of injury or
    death, it is due to the accidental ingestion of a similar-looking toxic
    mushroom. Legalization would eliminate this possibility. Shrooms have
    little potential for abuse as well.

    Thanks for the help so far ppl, from what research iv'e done it keeps seeming more and more like a bias decision was made for no apparent reason


    having used them myself quite a few times i've seen ppl have difficult experiences which mite of been easier dealt with and more beneficial with pschotherpist etc.


    Anyway so far all the pro mushroom info i got is FACT and all the negative seems to either be down to improper usage or just plain wrong or exaggerated.


    If any1 has anything more to contribute i would be grateful, i've got about 7 weeks anyway n the presentation only bout 10 mins

    i say if you have a religeous experiance on the psychedelics your less
    likely to go commit crimes. in paticular violent crimes and
    crimes against people. to me it realy says that thare is
    something more and to love people as people. the cops and church
    think just because they are in the name of the church or the law they
    are in the right. when it comes to the end of days they will be
    destoryed. the christians use the name of god in vein to
    persicute people on drugs, when the people on drugs are the true
    forgivers, and true pious. my interpritation of the bible states
    that they are representing them selfs as god in vein when they
    associate with the "chruch." amanita has been warshiped for
    thousands of years. even the good christian priest wouldnt have a
    problem singing "rocking around the christmas tree." in mathews
    in the bible it said again and again to place thy gift at thy
    alter. they keep refering to a "gift." i see the bible as
    just chronicals of pious drug users. as my native american peyote
    book says "white man goes into church house to talk about jesus, indian
    goes into teepee to talk TO jesus." life is short, we live once,
    and this is our opprotunity to unite, but our government would like to
    keep us devided forever. we are here to play, not fight amongst
    our selfs. god wants us to respect the land, the native americans
    have had the right idea. the white man drove the native to the
    reservation out of sight out of mind. this land of the united
    states will destroy the modern american, and i need some posters of
    land fills to remind me how great my ancestors were.

    Benefits of magic mushrooms use

    I started doing psychedelics (especially shrooms) before my 18th and I read some things about brain development and such but what I'm realising is that I behaved much more as an adult that time, It gave me much more wisdom and knowledge about life and such. It doesn't looks like my brian is missing something in it's development but something extra

    Just want to let you know that someone is getting some benifits from this stuff, did any of you get some benifits?

    Many people are getting benefits from these stuf and that's why they still exist, considering the fact that they are not addictive. I am at the same opinion about them. They force you to think about life as what it is on another level, not the daily one. That's their magic. That's why I like them. And about the behaviour I am really not sure about this. What I am sure is that I feel somehow spiritually cleaned up after a trip, especially with shroomz.
