    Hallucinogenic mushrooms (don't read if this topic offends you)

    I have a few questions about hallucinogenic mushrooms. (I have never tried shrooms) I'm considering trying mushrooms while I'm in High School. Can you OD? As I understand it, yes, but you have to eat an obscene amount to OD (varies by species I imagine) Are there any permanent effects on...
