Sir: I consider the article concerning 'magic mushrooms' irresponsible, because it failed to highlight the strength of this freely available drug.

The liberty cap mushroom is a powerful hallucinogenic similar to LSD, ie, it messes with the mind. The highs can be very high and the lows very low. I speak from personal experience: visiting the darker side of 'magic mushrooms' gives one an appreciation for sanity and reality.

Yours mystically,
