is it legal

Hi all is there anyone here who know if cultivating shrooms is legal in The uk just growing them not reaparing them.

This is what info I found about them in the Uk

? It is not illegal to pick, posses or eat raw magic mushrooms.
? Magic mushrooms are classified as a Class A drug when they are dried, cooked, boiled, or crushed or prepared to be used as a drug.

Possession and consumption of mushrooms is not an offence unless they have been processed or prepared for illicit use (i.e. cut, sliced, dried, pressed into powder etc. Psilocybin is contained in many hallucinogenic mushrooms (including the liberty cap) and is a phosphate of psilocin, which is a controlled drug. This raises complex legal issues with regard to magic mushrooms; generally, prosecution brought against people for possession of untreated mushrooms alone is likely to fail.

Magic Mushrooms, when reappeared or made into a product, are class A drugs.

The maximum penalty for possession is 7 years prison and/or a fine

The maximum penalty for supply is life imprisonment and/or a fine.

A drug record can cause serious problems at home and school and could affect job.

If you have a drug record, it can be difficult to get a Visa to travel to some countries.
