I wouldn't recomend anyone did this. Imagine your old man feeling a bit peckish and deciding to have a mushroom omelette or something, he could give himself a bit of a fright :wink:

If you're going to live with your parents, you're going to have to respect them and what they've worked for.

First, note that if you are somehow busted by the law, it will be you and your mother's responsibility. Both of you can face criminal charges... so make sure you assess that risk with your mother.

If she agrees to the consequences (after all growing cubensis is illegal in the USA, not sure about CDN laws), then I guess you have no obstrusions to barr you from your culitvation.

I have an idea for you.
Why don't you just become interested in cultivating other fungi too ?
Like gourmet and medicinal mushrooms.
Your parents will think mycology is your passion (I think it is). I know a guy who grows mushrooms, even hallucinogenic mushrooms sometimes and his parents have no idea about them. Hell, they are happy to see them pin, fruit, etc. You could tell them it's a tropical mushroom that you grow for it's form.
:wink:
Hope this helps !

I agree. You should respect your parents while you are living with them. It is only right.

I wouldn't after talking to your mom. Once she knows and says know its over. I can do things without asking permission but if I ask and get a "no" then I'll feel bad about it, besides it somehow seems worse since the other way isn't disobaying them its just being sneeky lol

I know that everyone else will disagree with me, but I'm quite used to it.  Buy a rubbermaid container and enough materials to grow two syringes full, and do it.  I don't know the dynamics of your room, but as a teenager i'm sure you can hide it from your parents.  It only takes a few weeks to get a good harvest.  Don't sell them or talk about it tho, don't be stupid :smile:

Of course, my post is subjective :smile:  I personally,back when I lived with my parents many eon's ago, in the pre-shroomery days :smile:  Grew them and told my parents I loved mushrooms. I'd always go morel hunting and pick species and identify them, so they had no reason to doubt me. Most parents don't know what "shrooms" are, mine didn't at least.

True, most parents know very little about drug let alone the rarer one like shrooms. They dunno wtf they are and hear things and mix'm up, make them worse and stress out and then it sucks...

yeah, I am thinking about growing, too.
Why?
* to become more involved in what I partake. Literally, the fruits of my own labor.
* because I have a special bond with mushrooms over any other drug (hmm... well just about on par with acid, but I have tons more mushroom experience under my belt)
* it's more under my control - no reliance on finding someone who sells them.

I think you should actually try mushrooms before you go to the bother of growing them. Friends have tried them, and it really didn't do it for them or they just didn't understand the trip.

When someone said "mushrooms to escape the stress"... hmmm... that's not why I enjoy mushroom trips. I have never relied on a drug to help me 'escape' reality, not even alcohol. For me, it's more comparable to a trip to an amusement park or an expedition... not really to escape stress, but to enjoy the experience.... regardless of whether you are stressed or not...

When I am stressed, I somewhat tend to avoid any kind of drug.... it's when I am in a happy state, that I think about having a trip.

my dad figured out i was growin mush, then he saw my casings.. he didnt care, he just told me that they would make me go stupid, if i wasn't already, hahaha.

i found a book the other day in the attic, called 'Poisounous and Hallucingenic Mushrooms' 2nd Edition, stolen from the local library in 1977, by my DAD, lol.. i already knew he was into all that shit when he was younger, but i thought it was funny he stole that book..

good luck on convincing your parents!! luckily for me my dad's a pothead.

I told them that they have fascinated me for a long time, I have made up my mind about wanting to try them and that I am sure they would rather have me grow my own instead of obtaining them from a dealer which would put me in contact with the "bad bad drug scene". Additionally my parents are subscribers to the "If you want something, work for it" theory so that fit quite well. Might not be as easy for someone whose parents are more influenced by anti drug propaganda.

Wow... let's see... Remember when you where a little kid and when you heard about drugs you though they were crazy little stuff from the criminal world? When, your mother, who's probably more than 40 has a similar vision of drugs than you when you was a little kid in the sense that people who never gives drugs a try do always see them as something from the criminal world or worst.

That's just to say: people who do drugs and people who doesn't do drugs have TERRIBLE different points of views about what drugs are and what do they make. That's in the first place the reason why they don't do drugs: because they believe drugs are dangerous, useless and bad.

I don't want to be a spoiler but... In my experience, you can't convince your mother the way that you tried. In fact, as you checked for yourself, trying to convince someone who doesn't do drugs about doing drugs is sometimes interpreted by the other part as the behavior of a "drugaddict" or someone on the way to become an "addict".

What I suggest is: learn to keep your drug use for yourself and people you know BY experience that are willing to use drugs, if not right at the moment, in the future. I repeat, people who doesn't do drugs won't understand ANY good argument about drugs.

There's only a moment when you can talk to another people about drugs: when is evident that you're not a drugaddict or someone on the way to become an "addict". That's when you're succesful in your life, independent, earn your own money, good at job, smart... Then you can say to your parents "I want to smoke crack", if you want, and they will hear you with open ears.

It's the trick: become someone they would try as an adult, then they will respect your decisions as an adult. It's not enough to just have the right age, you need what they call signs of being successful in your life.


PD: by the moment, I suggest you to just buy shrooms and stuff and experimenting with drugs like most people does... away from their parents knowledge.

I haven't read through all the posts, because there's quite a few, but had you thought about finding a friend you really trusted, as an alternative. It would depend how open you want to be about growing them, however. Ime, I don't really tell anyone, because I don't want word getting to the wrong people. Best of luck to you, though, and I hope you can figure something out!

:peace:
