Teen Eats Magic Mushrooms And Shoots Himself

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Florida teenager says he shot himself in the forehead in an attempt to `wake up from the bad nightmare` after he ate hallucinogenic mushrooms.

The 17-year-old DeLand boy, whose name was not reported, took the drugs with friends Tuesday, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
When his friends left him, he fell asleep, only to wake up a short time later thinking he was in a dream."



This incident isn`t as crazy as it seems, I have lucid dreams that are so real that in the dream I touch a solid object and I say to myself "I can`t be dreaming, because this chair seems solid to my touch. My dreams aren`t enhanced by any hallucinogenic mushrooms, so don`t even go there...

Kids stay away from hallucinogenic mushrooms, herb lovers might reach for a bong or a bag of Doritos but they will never reach for a gun and harm themselves or anybody else.

The silly kid wasn`t seriously hurt, and he won`t face any criminal charges. A guess a hole in the forehead is enough punishment -- dude you better start flying right.
