If you spend enough time in the attic, where you old books are just decaying and has fungus all over it, then chances are that you can get high. Experts believe that various fungi that feed on the pages and on the covers of old books is the likely source of hallucinogenic spores.
According to Dr R J Hay, one of England’s leading mycologists (fungus experts) and dean of dermatology at Guy’s Hospital in London, “The source of inspiration for many great literary figures may have been nothing more than a quick sniff of the bouquet of mouldy books.”
This should encourage youngsters to visit libraries more often. But another expert in the same field argues that a person can’t get high by just walking past an old books section, it has to be for a continuous period of time. But they definitely harbor hallucinogens.
