"I`m sick of people quoting mythbusters like it`s actual science or that it`s the last word on what`s true and what isn`t. They used a HOME test, you know what home tests are good for? Nothing. Actual laboratory tests have limits which detect false positives like those for opiates. There`s a BIG difference between a home test and a professional lab test. Mythbusters fails at basic rigor and at life."

They are wrong about one thing. You need to be in the right mind frame top take magic mushrooms. Do NOT take them if you are depressed or anxious! Bad, bad trips will happen. Horrible, scary, make you want to kill yourself just to end it kinda bad trip kinda stuff.

BlankTom, that myth said `soaked` not `smoked`. They `soaked` temporary tattoos in acid & the second line of that reality was "but no cases were ever reported and LSD is not even addictive"

Fact: Myth busters proved that eating poppyseed products WILL induce a positive for an opiates test.



Fact 2: This video is now completely debunked and anything heard within it should be researched thoroughly before it is accepted as true.

I will not watch beyond the second myth because it only succeeds in poisoning what I know to be fact and fiction.Source - Mythbusters video

Myth: Blue Star Tattoos.
Fact: Dealers supposedly smoked tattoos in acid to get kids hooked.

I think he might not quite grasp the concept of myth/fact.

It seems irresponsible to show a picture of a fly amanita when talking about how awsome the other kind of mushrooms are.

(As if "responsibility" was a watchword for the makers of this video.)

"Myth: magic mushrooms are dangerous if you`re depressed" This is actually true in a way. You should ave good mental health if you plan to do trip on shrooms because you can easily experience bad ego death and bad thoughts snowballing into a horrible trip. Happened to me twice, it was pretty horrible.

yeah, Jamie ate a normal amount of poppy seeds and tested positive in under an hour, and I have a friend who we had to keep smacking in the back of the head to quit staring at the sun when he was high on acid, he just kept saying, "but, I can see the angels, can`t you see the pretty angels."

9 is a non sequitur. Just because pot might reduce certain cancers does not mean it is not a cause or risk factor in others. It doesn`t mean that a pot smoker does not have a higher risk of cancer.

fun fact: while there is never anything GOOD about putting smoke into your lungs, studies show regular smokers of marijuana (self included) actually have larger than average lung capacity, due to deep inhalations and holding the smoke in for greater effects.
