selling mushrooms=bad??
    #1287938 - 02/07/03 08:44 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

around here the general notion is that drug dealers are bad, and those who sell there shrooms are frowned upon. I'm not really defending drug dealers, but why is it such a bad thing? Growing takes work, people should be able to charge for shrooms if they want to. i think it is a bad idea to sell drugs and personally would never do it b/c of the law and such, but i don't think it's immoral. I know shrooms are supposed to be enlightening and spiritual and i agree, but the first shrooms i ever got were from a dealer, as i sure most people's were.(fucker charged me $120 for a 1/2oz too)
I guess i just don't get all the hostility toward dealers here. What's so bad about it?

Giving without expecting anything back is the best. But we all have to pay the bills somehow. I just think its bad to sell homegrown shrooms JUST for the money. I only sell to my closest friends- who I can trust, and I know they can handle them -
and I try to trade as much as possible to keep cash out of the deal.

I don't see that selling my shrooms is bad. It costs me money for syringes, jars, rice, a pressure cooker, etc. also my time I spend. I dont charge people when they are with me and tripping or if it is someones first time. But if you give them away alot of people tend to be bums about it and want free drugs. I usually trade what I dont eat or sell for weed tho so they all get used and I get a 1/2 ounce of nugs for an ounce of shrooms. :grin: Selling drugs like crack is very bad tho. I had a dude tryng to sell me rock one time and I told him i would buy it if he smoked it with me. But he refused. I would never sell anything that I wouldnt do myself, that is very bad karma.

Generally, drug dealers are frowned upon as they have bad reps for crimes and carrying weapons. Also, they are just feeding the supply-and-demand by selling it for high prices. I'll agree that it does cost money to grow them, but it doesn't cost enough that you have to sell them for a lot of money. I can see deals between friend for $10 8s, but anything over and you're making too much profit. Also, many of us view the mushrooms as a spiritual thing that cannot be bought or sold.

I think it's okay if you sell them to people who you know can handle them. And if you don't sell to those people, you should at least give them a few tips on a proper trip, and tell them that they are spiritual drugs, not drugs that fuck you up.

:wink:

are mushrooms bad things? is using them immoral? no? didnt think so. in that case selling them is not either. overcharging is gay, but if it costs to much dont buy them. these people are paying there bills by selling the prodcut of there time and effort. mushrooms are harmless drugs. people who make there living by getting people hooked on coke than supplying them... maybe thats diffrent. growing a non addictive enlightening plant and then selling it? nah man. not even.  :tongue:

An honest product for an honest price is a good thing.
Think about though, if you go around handing out ounces of your home grown shrooms, people will turn around and sell them. That would kind of piss me off, someone else is benefiting from all YOUR hard work and you are left with nothing but a little respect. Hooking your friends up with an eigth so they can trip with you is deffinetly something we should all do though.

My point is, no one can stop the sale of them. But if everyone is selling them, they should at least do so for a reasonable price.

I don't understans why weed is so common, and shrooms are do hard to find.

You can grow pounds of shrooms in a relatively small space with no need for expensive lights and cabinets, and with little smell.

With the same amount of space, and time, you can grow about a pound of shrooms or about 3 ounces of weed.

Maybe because weed is WAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYY more popular than shrooms.

Actually most of the people I talk to bitch because they cant find mushrooms and would deffinetly do them if they could ever get their hands on some. Hopefully I'll be able to help them out...that is if I can ever decide on a fucking bulk tek to go with. I agree weed is more popular, but I dont know about WAAAAYYYYYYYYY more popular, atleast where I live.

Weed is just overrated. It really isn't that great of a drug.

I don't see anything wrong with making a wee bit off your efforts.
U start growing for money and bad shit happens though.IMHO
U did put your money into it so atleast break even.

I usually get rid of a bag or 2 to people i wouldn't enjoy triping with.
I then take my wife out to a nice dinner for payback for the huge mess I made in her kitchen. :wink:
So basicly u get good food,shrooms and prob some pussy
can't beat that with a stick

Yeah, but demand is WAY higher than supply.

The demand for weed is higher, but is pretty even with supply most of the time.

I don't think drug dealing has to be bad. there is a market for drugs, and our country operates upon money. so if you put the two together, money actually does grow on trees, plants, cow pastures, etc.  :smile: I often buy an ounce for $80-140 and you get anywhere from a free eighth to a free half ounce after you break even. so, all I have to do is find fellow psychonauts like me and as a result, I get an eighth of shrooms (a half ounce if you have a good hook).

peace,
tim.

drug dealers are frowned upon because they are the real reason why people go from things like pot and shrooms, to heroin or crack or something. they get used to getting shit from the guy, and getting all f-ed, then one day he's out. but he still has a little crack, and the person really wants a buzz, so they start groovin on that. selling isnt bad to me, as long as you're not out to make a profit (unless its homegrown. in that case, id think selling was ok to your close friends, to make back what you put in.) i used to sell bud, and i never did it to make money. i tried at first, but i always broke even. except id have like a qp to my self. its always nice when by selling off part of a large shipment, u get to break even adn get high for 3 months. w00t.
