Charges dropped against Denton man

04/25/2003

DENTON - All charges against a 67-year-old Denton man accused of harvesting hallucinogenic Psilocybin were dropped Wednesday, April 16 after laboratory results revealed the suspected drugs were fake.


John Henry Wheatley was arrested in February after an investigation by the Caroline County Drug Task Force led to the discovery of what they believed was the largest Psilocybin grown on the Eastern Shore in the basement of his business along Crystal Avenue. Psilocybin is more commonly known by its street names such as magic mushrooms or 'shrooms. Nearly 4-r pounds of the suspected drugs were found in the basement.


According to charging documents, two separate controlled buys conducted by the task force netted suspected drugs that field-tested positive for Psilocybin.


"This is why field tests aren't admissible in court," said State's Attorney Jonathan G. Newell. He said field tests are not nearly as thorough as the laboratory tests.


Newell said Wheatley was getting "ripped off" by whomever had supplied him the mushroom spores, and that Wheatley was unaware they were bogus.


Legally, a person still can be prosecuted for attempting to deal an imitation substance as an illegal drug, even if he is doesn't know the substance's authenticity.

Very odd... do you think he was growing a nonactive species, or did the lab screw up with their analysis?

Yah, that's fucked up. rofl.

How's he gonna be growin' 4 pounds worth and NOT know that it's the wrong kind? He don't sound like a noob to me, he knew what the hell he was doing..

Besides that, give me a damn break - the man is 67 years old, can you just seem 'em treating him like they do on "COPS?"

I personally don't think he was a newbie, if he was sixty-five he probably knew what he was doing and four pounds ain't no little operation....
I also find it hard to believe that the lab messed up--maybe he had connections or something?!?!?! that is really weird

Perhaps at the age of 65 his eyesight ain't what it used to be. He may not have noticed he was growing the wrong kind.

The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis

It happens. It would be more likely if this were a smaller forensics lab that doesn't get many mushrooms.
