PF GUYS ARRESTED???!!!!!
    #1317664 - 02/18/03 08:18 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Did anyone see this on the news? I just saw it and see no mention of it anywhere... I dont' come here often much anymore...(shrooms) are too bad on my anxiety...so maybe this is old news...



but WHAT THE FUCK?



They got arrested for selling spores and syringes etc, and because they had info on their website how to grow.  How is this illegal? The only way would be if they didnt' have a disclaimer... right??



MJ, you still around and you know anything about this?



Just thought i would post this here for the PNW guys.... maybe it belongs in cultivation? ... Maybe it's already posted there?.... Maybe i"m just kinda cracked out right now LOL> :crazy:

KING 5 Investigators

They're called "magic mushrooms" and they produce an illegal high. Tuesday, federal agents raided a local company that made tens of thousands of dollars a month selling them on the Internet.

The KING 5 Investigators have been looking into this company for weeks now.

The company is known as Fanaticus and they sell syringes, filled with a solution with countless spores.

With these and a little know-how, just about anyone can grow potent psychedelic mushrooms.

KING 5 was there when drug agents brought in one of two men suspected of putting a high-tech twist on the sale of an old-time drug by operating Fanaticus, the Web site that sells the magic mushrooms via the Internet.



Agents say the men operated out of a home near Lake Quinault in the remote rain-forest country of the Olympic Peninsula ? the perfect climate for growing mushrooms.

Authorities say they first heard about Fanaticus in phone calls coming in from across the country.

The KING 5 Investigators obtained some syringes from Fanaticus. A close look shows the tiny black spores floating in a solution.

Prosecutors say the spores themselves are not illegal. They don't contain the hallucinogenic properties of a full-grown mushroom, but the Web site contains specific instructions on how to inject the spores into a jar and grow a potent magic mushroom.

"It's the equivalent of selling somebody the ingredients to make meth and telling them how to mix it up, and getting paid for it. You'd be guilty of conspiring to distribute methamphetamine," said Doug Whalley, federal prosecutor.



At $10 per syringe, it appears the suspects? worldwide sales were making them rich.

At a court hearing Tuesday, suspected ringleader Robert McPherson admitted earning $30,000 per month and authorities say his only source of income comes from his thriving mail-order mushrooms.

DEA and the postal inspector?s office have been investigating Fanaticus for years. They actually planted some of these spores and grew mushrooms in a DEA lab to make sure the process works. And it did.

That sounds like a bad idea. If they arrest your supplier, they might show up at your house. Who knows.

I suppose the fact that they were making 30K a month roused some interest by the authorities!

They are probably going to get them on tax evasion.  Its only a matter of time though.  Again don't rock the table- there's a house of cards on top.

A conspiracy to manufacture case will never hold water, i think, but this may be a bad sign of things to come. i certainly hope not.
i also hope PF's books are in order.

If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

OMG! The total BASTARDS :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

This is a slap in the face of justice. As far as I know spores aren't illegal, they should walk, tho passing an anti-"drug" law is as easy as passing gas after a meal of baked beans these days. And just now us shroomlovers increase in numbers and thus the usage/market for the TRUELY DANGEROUS STUFF decreases the law in their infinite wisdom pulls a crappy stunt like this. Let's stop taking our shrooms every once in a blue moon and go shoot up heroin at a rate of four muggings a day :mad:

Hey Feds: These Shrooms happen to grow in the wild, there's likely tens of millions of shroomgrowers worldwide just as there are tens of millions of spores in one shroom. The Second Psychedelic Revolution is going to steamroll over your stupid WOD. Eat our sporedust!
