Best thing I have ever done, hands down...MMs also aren't toxic at all and have no harming physical effects. The only thing you have to watch out for is a bad trip which is relatively uncommon and any bad mental effects from it are temporary.
All right it's story time! That statement about the crazy kid running down the street in bare feet questioning why he exists, it's a true story and there's even more.
So it was after a concert, some chick gave my friend and I goo balls when all the sudden, this kid jumps out the bushes. This kid is totally tripping balls, like the first time he did acid. He's keeps questioning things, like do I really exist........NO this isn't real, NO yes it is, no we don't exist. He starts going up to people saying you all don't exist and this kid looks like he's about to run in the street. I decided to tell the kid to chill out and lie down like everyone else on the ground. He looked relaxed for a second, then he punches me right in the face. I was pretty messed up myself so I got up and shook it off, let the kid run amok. He tries to run across the street, but this police officer threatens to lock him up in the mental hospital if he doesn't calm down. Everyone was basically telling him to chill out. Next thing he does, he go up to a couple, at first, tries to fondle the chick's breasts. Then he goes up to the dude and tries to unzip his pants. The dude was about to beat his ***, so I intervened once again because there were cops and told the dude, look man, he's tripping, he's ****ed up, just let him be. The dude chills out by the crowd by then turned on the kid and told him to run in the woods. That's what he basically did.
I'm sure the kid is fine but at the time, he was wack. Psychedelics can do that but the moral of the story:
1. When you are new, don't trip alone
2. Be in a safe environment.
3. Stay away from the public unless you are at some festival where everyone else is tripping.
It's isn't about someone turning crazy. It's just if you have a bad trip, especially your first time, it's not going to be remembered as a positive experience.
