Guardian Unlimited Politics | Comment | Mark Honigsbaum: Magic mushrooms are harmless:

“The Aztecs referred to them as ‘the flesh of the gods’. Lewis Carroll based whole passages of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland on them. And the Glastonbury organisers have found that, unlike Ecstasy, ‘shrooms’ (as the psychedelic fungi sold across the country are known) do not fill the medical tent with dehydrated zombies.Indeed, magic mushrooms seem to have no adverse health consequences (unless you take them while operating heavy machinery). Which makes it curious, as Alice might have put it, that next month’s Glastonbury will be the last where devotees can journey to the spirit world without fear of ending up in a prison cell.”
