Nothing magic in nightmare trip

Young Argentine Noe Caffesse sat last night with legs crossed on his Timaru Hospital bed, lips and teeth stained black from drinking charcoal - a souvenir from his less-than-magical trip.

For 36 hours the 19-year-old cleaner and barman lay unconscious in bush near Lake Tekapo after eating three poisonous toadstools - which he had mistaken for hallucinogenic magic mushrooms.

He found the mushrooms near Mt John, but as soon as he took them he started to feel "strange".

He then became disoriented and said the last thing he remembered was falling over.

"When I woke up, I felt really sick so I started walking home."

Police and volunteers searched for him on Thursday but he was found asleep in his room at 6.30am on Friday. Mr Caffesse said despite having no food or water for two days he was feeling fine after taking charcoal to absorb the poison.

National Poisons Centre medical toxicologist Dr Michael Beasley said Mr Caffesse probably took a species called Amanita muscaria - "Satan's mushroom" .

"It causes central nervous system depression. It causes general drowsiness which in severe form can go into deep sleep and coma."

Yea, that's easy to say, but unfortunately the media can sway public opinion with misinformation and by creating fear. A few negative stories about salvia could easily get it slapped as a scheduled drug. So if we have similar type of incident that some irresponsible kid smokes this plant and does something stupid and it ends up on tv, I would get ticked off for ruining it for the rest of us.

How the hell does one confuse amanita muscaria for a magic mushroom, unless they're using Alice in Wonderland as their mushroom guide

And I've eaten amanitas before, and while they made me throw up they were definitely not poisonous. I've never heard them called "Satan's Mushrooms" before either

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.
