    The Dutch cabinet has proposed a ban on the sale of all hallucinogenic "magic" mushrooms because they could induce life-threatening behaviour.
    A bill will now pass to the Dutch parliament, where a majority of lawmakers are expected to back a ban after a teenage French girl who had eaten mushrooms died jumping from a bridge in 2007.


    In recent years the Netherlands has looked to shed its "anything goes" image and has tightened laws on drug use and prostitution.

    "If they succeed with this mushroom ban then I am sure they will try to ban things like cannabis as well. This is part of a wider trend," said Freddy Schaap of the VLOS.

    Psilocybin is a mild hallucinogen and the active ingredient in a magic mushroom. Eaten raw has an earthy taste but nothing compared to LSD visuals.

    Magic mushrooms can treat depression: Study
    Saturday 14th October, 2017: A new study has found that the drug psilocybin, found in mushrooms, can help treat depression by helping them 'reset' their brains. The findings come from a study in which researchers used psilocybin - the psychoactive compound that occurs naturally in magic mushrooms - to treat a small number of patients with depression in whom conventional treatment had failed.

    Depression: A revolution in treatment?
    24 August 2016 - It's not very often we get to talk about a revolution in understanding and treating depression and yet now doctors are talking about "one of the strongest discoveries in psychiatry for the last 20 years". It is based around the idea that some people are being betrayed by their fiercest protector. That their immune system is altering their brain.
