Ireland was one of 50 countries where people were surveyed. 120,000 participants took part and the findings revealed that magic mushrooms are the safest drug to take recreationally and are five times safer than cocaine or LSD. 

The most dangerous recreational drug is methamphetamin with 4.8% of respondents needing medical treatment after using it.

This is compared to alcohol (1.3%), MDMA/Ecstasy (1.2%) and amphetamine (1.1%). 

Dr. Adam Winstock, author of the survey, said: 

“We want to promote honest conversations about drugs, we want the nightlife industry to be able to share advice with their customers to champion inform decisions. The government will seek to criminalise and change legislation, but that can take years."
