Mehamphetamine: Meth can definitely cause persistent psychosis especially in those with predisposition. PCP, LSD, mushrooms, peyote might but no conclusive evidence that I know of. Cocaine and even marijuana frequently cause temporary psychosis and could trigger those who are susceptible more long term. Alcohol can cause psychosis especially during withdrawal
