Around The Weird: Bizarre News Briefs

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash) -- Doctors could soon be telling their patients, "Take two mushrooms and call me in the morning." According to "Wired.com", a group of researchers are close to convincing government officials to allow psychedelic drugs like ecstasy and magic mushrooms to be studied to assess their effects on patients with terminal cancer, obsessive-compulsive disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder.

BIRMENSDORF, Switzerland -- Hippies have something to smile about: Scientists in Switzerland say they have found a mushroom that covers 86 acres in the Swiss Alps. The "Associated Press "reports that the scientists found a humongous fungus nearly 1,000 years old below an Alpine forest. But while the "honey mushroom" is the continent's largest living organism, it doesn't come close to the massive mushroom in Oregon spanning 2,200 acres.

ATHENS, Greece -- These drugs weren't prescribed by their doctors. Three more athletes have tested positive for drugs at the Athens Paralympics. The "Associated Press "reports a cyclist and two weightlifters were stripped of their medals after failing drug tests. The three physically-challenged athletes join four others who have tested positive since the start of the Paralympics, which close today.

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- There's a church in New York that allows you to get a sandwich and worship God at the same time. "WVBI.com "reports that the True Bethel Baptist church in Buffalo is the first church in the U.S. to open its own Subway restaurant. Construction started several months ago for the restaurant as part of a $150,000 renovation project.
