1 is false. long term studies HAVE been done and not only can mushrooms NOT cause psychosis, long term users actually show over all better mental health.

2 is false. there are no such things as "flashbacks" that's a complete myth.

3 is false. the study didn't show that mushrooms erase fear, it showed that they repair harmful memories and damaged brain cells from ptsd.

if you make a facts video, make sure you verify your facts.
