The illegal drug was the focus of a study carried out at the Johns Hopkins University of Baltimore.

They found in a study on 36 healthy adults in 2006 that even 14-months after they took the drug, the users stated that they felt much better overall.

The drug was found to have very long-lasting spiritual health benefits, as all received a positive benefit even a full year after taking the drug.

Researchers believe this could lead to new treatments for depression, and other mental health issues.

The study was published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology.
