Magic Mushrooms Found to Fight Depression
A hallucinogenic drug derived from magic mushrooms could be useful in treating depression, the first safety study of this approach has concluded.
Researchers from Imperial College London gave 12 people psilocybin, the active component in magic mushrooms.
All had been clinically depressed for a significant amount of time—on average 17.8 years. None of the patients had responded to standard medications, such as selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs), or had electroconvulsive therapy.
One week after receiving an oral dose of psilocybin, all patients experienced a marked improvement in their symptoms. Three months on, five patients were in complete remission.

California Squatter Files Lawsuit against the Homeowner
Remember the movie ‘Pacific Heights?’
A California homeowner says a squatter has not only taken over her home in Fair Oaks but has filed a restraining order against her!
Sandra Forbes says the woman moved in about two months ago without meeting her or getting permission. The alleged intruder produced a lease and other paperwork to the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department, and Forbes says they’re fake.
Sounds unfair, right? Not in Cali. It seems squatters do have rights and can even gain tenants’ rights, making eviction difficult! A moving truck did show up outside Forbes’ home last Thursday, suggesting an end to the ordeal might be near — but neighbors say they saw the woman moving furniture off the truck and into the house.
