No, just the shit that caused direct brain damage.
Why do you think that? Psychedelics have very few, if any, long term effects.

Coffee is probably more harmful.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

That's a case study with very few incidence listed.

Here's one for caffeine.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4313757/

And compared to the incidence of brain damage done by alcohol, it doesn't represent any risk.
What is the incidence of hppd among psychedelic users?

Wiki suggests
The prevalence of HPPD was unknown as of 2018. Estimates in the 1960s and 1970s were around 1 in 20 for intermittent HPPD among regular users of hallucinogens. It is not clear if chronic HPPD exists, but one estimate in the 1990s was that 1 in 50,000 regular users might have chronic disturbing hallucinations.
I say pffft. As recreational drugs go, you can't find a safer one.

I choose to avoid such on general principles.

Nope. Probably biased by having to live with my mushroom/hash/beer/whiskey/wine/pot smoker and wannabe pot dealer brother.

Like that time he let go of the steering wheel to light up and the car promptly aimed itself at a light pole. I yelled at him and as he dropped his joint and resumed driving, he yelled back, "WHY DIDN'T YOU GRAB THE WHEEL?!?!"

That is your basic Internet right there.

Grabbing the wheel might have been the smart move

Sorry about your experiences with family Pyrrho. You can choose your friends but not your family, eh?

Sadly I'm living the history at the moment. 3/4 kids are having problems with alcohol.

Half the family is dead now. Of the 2 still alive, one is lost to drugs and booze and the other hated the family scene so much that we haven't heard from him for decades.

And we call this normal.

It's the bitch being the youngest kid. You have to watch while everyone dies.
