Celebrities who use the drug Virgo are not as cool as you think
Posted On August 7, 2021
Celebrities using the drug dubbed “virusgo” are more “dumb as hell” than you might think, according to a new study.
The study published Thursday in the journal Addiction found that nearly a quarter of the more than 20,000 celebrities on the website, The Virgo Club, did not use the psychedelic drugs in the past year, and just 13 percent used them for their own use.
The drug, which is also known as MDMA or “ecstasy,” has been linked to psychosis and other mental health issues in recent years.
But it is considered relatively safe by experts, and has been used widely for decades as a recreational drug.
Some of the people who have used it for their recreational purposes are also among the most famous in the entertainment world.
They include Britney Spears, Madonna, David Bowie, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Sting, Prince, and many others.
But there is no scientific proof that its use is linked to addiction or psychosis.
“The virgo celebs don’t look like the cool kids,” said Dr. Kevin Breslin, an addiction specialist at Johns Hopkins University.
“They’re the dumbest.”
The Virgo celebers are not the only ones who have been under scrutiny for their use of the drug.
A new study released Thursday by the American Academy of Pediatrics found that the rate of teen drug use in the U.S. has gone up in the last year.
Researchers looked at data from more than 1.3 million teenagers from 2010 to 2013 and found that teens who were using cannabis or other drugs at the time were twice as likely to use drugs as those who did not.
And in 2012, the CDC released data showing that the prevalence of teen use of cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamines had increased by more than 30 percent in the 10 years since 2009.
“It’s not like people are getting the drugs at a higher rate than they used to,” said Michael Katz, a professor of pediatrics at Columbia University.
Katz said it’s possible that a growing number of celebrities are using drugs that are not legal in the United States, including some who have not yet turned 18.
“This is not just about celebrities,” he said.
“It’s about a culture that’s embracing drugs that people who don’t have legal access are now embracing.”
Dr. Brian Levin, a psychiatrist who has researched the use of psychedelics in the media, said the virgo group is just one of many groups that are growing and spreading a message about drugs.
“There’s this message that people can have the drug without thinking about it,” he told The Associated Press.
The virgas use has come under scrutiny in recent months after several high-profile celebrities, including Ryan Gosling, Emma Watson, and Chris Evans, came under scrutiny over the past month for using the drugs.”
For many people, it’s an easy way to escape reality and get out of the negative attention that comes with drugs.”
