I'm not a cop
    #1423336 - 04/02/03 03:57 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

So I'm not a cop, but I'm not exactly someone who grows mushrooms either. I'm actually a journalist in Washington, D.C., and I'm working on a story about growing shrooms. If you are in the the DC area and are willing to talk to me (and I promise to keep you anonymous and never reveal your identity), please send me an email. I know this is long shot, but I thought I'd try anyway. Thanks!!!
- Lauren

If you don't mind me asking what is your story going to be about, because I highly doubt that anyone here will give you an interview if all you are going to do is try and support the prohibitory gov't in place.

well, that's the whole issue. In most states it is legal to purchase spores, but from what I understand, growing them and possesing them is illegal. How does that make sense? I'm not trying to push a pro-government/establishment agenda. If anything, it shows how ridicules drug laws can be.
And I understand that I probably won't find anyone willing to talk to me. However, to really have a balanced, fair story, I think it's necessary to talk to a real person who is affected by these laws. It would be easy for me to have a cop or government official spewing why these laws are in effect, why they are great, etc.

That is quite simple to explain scientifically. Spores which contain absolutely no psilicin or psilocybin are legal by that very definition. The mature fruits contain the chemical in question that is scheduled. It would be very hard to pass a bill that prohibited a substance (spores) containing no illegal chemicals. Now go do some research since this information is pretty well know and a person is not needed to establish facts.

You guys are absolutely right. I have terrible grammar (note my correct spelling) and a casual writing style. But I'm posting on a message board and I'm not exactly a crusty old journalist. All that I am trying to say is feel free to send me an email, even call me. I don't expect anyone to trust me right away. But if you can relate or understand the story I am trying to work on, please get in touch with me.

Unfortunately, there's at least several seeds that don't contain the scheduled chemicals that the grown plants contain and yet are illegal themselves.

From browsing around looking for articles by a Lauren Dunn in Washington DC, I found quite a few. However, none list Lauren as working for the ABC station that the email address domain is for :mad:. Also, it appears that Lauren is more of a technology reporter ( Cell Phones: They're Everywhere, and a HazardDoes Congress Need to Regulate Online Auctions?Should Surfing Kids Get Their Own Domain?). It is kinda weird that Lauren would now be interested in magical mushrooms... one of those things that makes you go huh. :smirk:

Well, maybe its a different reporter Lauren Dunn in Washington DC. Then again, I can't find a phone number for any Lauren Dunn in DC.

Huh  :smirk:

Why must this communication be through private channels? Ask your questions here and I'm sure some people will talk about their friend's or friend of a friend's experiences.

And if you want to talk about illogic in drug laws...here's something to think about: Why is it that the two recreational drugs, alcohol and tobacco, that kill more people than the illegal drugs each year, are legal and yet drugs like marijuana or mushrooms that have not ever been proven to be the direct cause of one death are illegal? I'll give you a hint, chercher l'argent (find the money).

"Just the two major legal drugs, tobacco and alcohol, are together
directly responsible for over 500,000 deaths a year in this country.
Deaths associated with prescription drugs are an additional 100,000 a
year. The combined deaths associated with all the illegal drugs,
including heroin, cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine, and PCP, may
increase this total by another 5,000. In other words, if all illegal
drug use were to be curtailed by some stroke of a magic wand, the
drug-related deaths in the country would decrease by 1 percent. The
remaining 99% remain just as dead, but dead by legal, and thus socially
acceptable means."

By beaners do you mean seeds? because if so, you have smoked yourself stupid!
:grin:

If you get 'high' from a bowl of seeds, you are really getting high on depriving your brain of oxygen. Not that any smoke inhaled is good for you, but I would think the seeds would be particularly bad.

Is a Producer the same as a Journalist? Cause Lauren has now claimed to me to be a producer for the ABC station, not a reporter. Once again, HUH.

I have not smoked myself stupid, in fact I have not smoked in a while. Seeds contain THC and when smoked will supply your body with that chemical. I have never tried this and never will, but this does not change the facts.
