Woah.

Buzz kill much?



Not so much a buzz kill if I can get high and kill someone with no repercussions because it was only a "hallucination"



Haha shows how much you know, tell me, if you kill someone when under the influence of alcohol, are there any consequences? nobody gets a free pass, unless of course you are filthy rich, then the world is your playground.

Then again i do not know where in the backwaters you live, maybe alcohol is a get free from jail card around there?

What im curious is if the DEA will bust a known mushroom dealer whose got a big lab? If i remember right, they had done that with decriminalized weed growers (beyond personal use).

Im assuming growing your own for youraelf and maybe some friends is probably going to be fine.

The tidal wave can not be stopped, the ancient ones are awakening, and the bull(snip) has reached it`s expiration date.


That and science is awakening as well - unbiased science.

True, but afterlife for example, it would be a mighty deed for science to measure, weigh and repeat in a controlled setting.




Science will always limit itself.

Exactly. Legit labs will grow them far more safer and better than a cartel or criminal organization. You don't know what or how much chemicals they are putting on the plant. Plus you give money to criminals...

Thanks for sharing your knowledge though.

It doesn't work like that on so many different levels.

Some people are afraid of things they don't understand.

This like many things is a nuanced topic. The substance is physically safe, way safer than alcohol. A small minority of people may have adverse reactions that could lead them to doing something they otherwise would not do, this is the same for any other substance including pharmaceuticals (many of which have been associated with a larger amount of incidents).

The fact of the matter is it's absolutely silly that a government could think they can control how people decide to use their minds. The idea that they could tell someone it's off limits to ingest a natural and "safe" substance is foolish.

Whether or not it is criminalized will not stop people from their curiosity. Do we as a people want to pay for people to be jailed for a choice they made that effected no one else? I vote no. Personally I think that all drugs should be decriminalized (not to be confused with legal). Dealers of toxic drugs could still get punished, users would be helped. It's less strain on society in that way and more fiscally responsible and has better outcomes for all those involved. A few countries have proven this.

And this is another reason why these natural medicines are a Class A. If they became legal to treat depression, addition, ptsd , anxiety etc, then this is not good for the pharmaceuticals who make billions a year on these conditions. They cannot make any money from it, so why would they want it to be legal?

Pharmaceuticals have a lot of power at the end of the day. Put that in with b.s. stigma, and it is easy to brainwash people regarding this


Just have to look at some of the posts on here to know this is the case


We have to remember, one of the main reasons these are class A, is Because it was said they have no medical value. We now know that this is false.

Good lord!


That there are still people who think “THEY get high and [rape, kill, murder, steal candy from babies, drink blood, jaywalk, etc.] without consequences...” just shows that “Reefer Madness”-style brain washing actually works!

And you all should be scared of that more than some fungus that really doesn’t need any chemicals to grow!!

Colorado HO!!

So, you are saying it's dangerous because of an event that is very rare. You do realise that people can can a bad reaction to pretty much anything.

Saying that, I have never heard of a person losing a kidney after taking shrooms. Actually, there is no evidence that this can actually happen.

Well you would be wrong its not the king there. If you want your brother to have a read. Then peruse this.





Magic mushrooms are the safest recreational drug, study says



Only .2% of almost 10,000 people who reported taking psilocybin hallucinogenic mushrooms in 2016 reported that they needed emergency medical treatment, according to the annual Global Drug Survey. The survey, of more than 120,000 participants in 50 countries, found that the rates of emergency medical treatment for MDMA, '___', alcohol and coc aine were almost five times higher
