This Week in SOKY Indy Drug Awareness: Shrooms
It's called the Psilocybin mushroom, but most people call the drug shrooms. Though not quite as potent as LSD, the hallucinogenic effect of consuming this mushroom can be quite severe, and in some unfortunate cases it can be fatal. Psilocybin is the chemical that acts as the active ingredient in a “trip”, and scientists now know that when under the effect of this drug, the regions of the brain linked to memory and emotion are hyper-stimulated. This is why people who use the drug have such profoundly emotional experiences. Shrooms also decrease stimulation to the parts of the brain that are linked with a person's ego, this forces the user to behave and think very differently about themselves and others.

This Week in SOKY Indy Drug Awareness: LSD
It is difficult to describe the drug known as LSD without the use of highly technical language used in the medical field, but it becomes easier with a working understanding of its history. LSD is one of the most common drugs associated with the hipster movement of the late sixties and seventies. The drug Lysergic Acid Diethylamide is harvested from fungus that grows on wheat plants such as rye. According to an article written by one of the foremost medical minds in early American Psychiatry, Dr. Roy Grinker, LSD was originally designed to essentially loosen the mental barriers and defenses that were at the time thought to be preventing a psychotic patient from receiving logical insight.
