Police confiscate "magic mushrooms" [IL]

Edwardsville man faces drug charges
July 8, 2005 - goedwardsville.com

Police confiscate "magic mushrooms"
A 26-year-old Edwardsville man was charged recently with possession of psilocybin, a hallucinogenic drug commonly known as "magic mushrooms." Authorities say the incident happened Feb. 25 near Joe Glik Park in Edwardsville.

On Wednesday, Madison County State's Attorney Bill Mudge charged Rodney B. Goodwin with unlawful possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a public park. Goodwin allegedly possessed 65 grams of psilocybin at his home in Edwardsville.

His bail was set at $60,000, and he had not been taken into custody Wednesday afternoon.

The investigation was carried out by the Metropolitan Enforcement Group of Southwestern Illinois. A spokesperson for M.E.G.S.I was not immediately available for comment.

Psilocybin is a Schedule I substance, the same as heroin and LSD. The mushrooms are available fresh or dried and have long, slender stems topped by caps with dark gills on the underside, according to information from the National Drug Intelligence Center, a branch of the U.S. Department of Justice.

Psilocybin can be ingested orally or brewed as tea, or added to other foods to mask the flavor. According to the NDIC, the mushroom is popular at raves, clubs, and on college campuses. The drug has several negative physical side effects including nausea, vomiting, muscle weakness, and loss of muscular coordination, according to the NDIC.

Goodwin also faces a bench trial on July 21 in Madison County Circuit Court for several alleged misdemeanor violations.

The charges stem from his arrest for allegedly possessing less than 10 grams of marijuana.

The arrest also resulted in charges of possession of a brass hitter pipe used to smoke marijuana and with giving a 12-ounce can of beer to a minor.

Police arrested him at 1 a.m. on the property of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.

wow, what a "bad seed", I bet they throw the book at him. Intent to deliver, at his home, just because there was a park near by? Sounds like a bad idea to walk around campus while smoking pot, drinking/sharing beers and possibly tripping when you have a big stash at home.

I used to go to that school. Law enforecement is trying to take back the town. really pushing to alter the city's and universities' image as a party school which in my opinion, is far from a party school.

::Cough, cough:: What about all of the positive effects? Gotta love the unbiased journalism. The only reason I eat magic mushrooms is for the nausea, vomiting, muscle weakness, and loss of muscular coordination. Right.

haha. i hadn't noticed that. well the shroomery pharmacology says mushrooms are 00.6% psilocin. which would mean he had the equivalent of over 10,833g of p. cubensis. well shiiit, lock the dude up.

yeah they say "possession of psilocybin, a hallucinogenic drug commonly known as "magic mushrooms."

lol...psiolcybin isn't known as "magic mushrooms" LOL...they obviously did NO research before writing this story.

yeah, and 65 grams of psilocybin would melt the world lol...

Its not no reasearch was done, or incorrect terming (kind of), its how the law sees it. Like how they used to do LSD by weight, so you could go to jail forever for a couple of sugar cubes and get off easier for a few sheets of blotter...the mushrooms are said to be all psilocybin, because all of it contains some. Its just how they talk about things to make drugs more badder...

Same way a guy in I think Vermont got busted with 10,000 shroom chocolates, but they couldnt charge him with a felony (over ten "doses") because in that state, theres no set "dose", worked for the guy that time..
