At least five incidents have been recorded in the private clinics and the Health Centre of Mykonos recently, with victims being domestic workers who tried chocolates or other sweets tainted hallucinogenic substances that were left behind by clients from rental villas.
The housekeepers, not knowing what the sweets contained, tried them, resulting in hallucinations, reported Proto Thema.
The chocolates that were left forgotten in the refrigerators or in other parts of the luxury mansions contained psilocybin. The effects of psilocybin are generally similar to those of LSD.
Possible effects of psilocybin include euphoria, mental awakening, rapidly changing emotions, derealisation, or the feeling that the environment is not real, visual alteration and distortion, such as halos and bright colors, impaired concentration, and unusual bodily sensations or hallucinations.
