Investigators: Magic mushrooms via the Web
02/19/2003

By CHRIS INGALLS / 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.



Again I REALLY dont know if this is real or fake
