    #1690639 - 07/06/03 06:44 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I live in FL, in Pinellas County.I was charged with a felony possion of mushrooms. Im out on a 5000 dollar bail. I heard that mushrooms were a class 3 drug, but they are charging me with a class 1 the same as heroin. Anybody with any info that can help with my case would be much appreciated. By the way I was caught with 2/8 oz dryied.

ask your lawyer about 'treatment in leiu of conviction'. They do this in my state where if its your first drug charge, you can go to rehab on an outpatient program (you dont have to stay in house) and get your charges expunged after you complete probation which will probably be from 1.5 - 3 years. You would also have to go to AA meetings or something of that sort.

Sorry to hear this about a fellow shroomerite. Best wishes bro.

They never were legal.... you MIGHT be able to get away with wild cubes or something because they ruled that 'the average person cannot be expected to identify wild mushrooms'.... it only applies to if you get arrested picking...

Everything isn't, but pot and shrooms are. Coke and PCP are schedule 2, among other drugs. It depends on if they have medical value or not in this area...which is why pot should be schedule 2.

I currently cant remeber where I heard this but I do believe it is true...I could just be imaging it. I've been up for over 48hrs and really need sleep. But the poster got arested for dryed shrooms anyways.

Actully I dont think Florida considers it fair to consider a shroom a container of the drug since they can be found anywhere. The only way they would arest someone for having shrooms is if they were dryed (since then you know whats up) or if Florida specificly named every tripping shroom in the law.

I don't know about US laws, but I understand that the UN recommendations about law regarding psilocybin mushrooms is that possession of fresh mushrooms shouldn't be an offence, but preperation or possession of prepared (e.g. cut/cooked/dried) mushrooms should be an offence.

Having said that, it makes little difference the USA rarely listens to what the UN have to say anyway :wink:

Psilocybin and Psilocin are both schedule I drugs. Cannabis is also schedule I, but synthetic THC is schedule III.

Schedule I drugs are drugs that the DEA consider to be:

- A drug that has a high potential for abuse
- A drug that currently has no accepted medical use
- A drug that has a lack of accepted safety for use under medical
supervison

A friend of mine was busted carrying 1/4 of mushrooms a few years back. He had no prior convictions and was able to get the charges dropped to posession of drug parafonaila. He had to pay court fines and do some community service. He served no probation.

My suggestion is to get a laywer who specializes in drug related court cases. I wouldn't losed too much sleep over it. Unless you have prior convictions the worse you can get is probation.

Two seperate 1/8 oz bags?

Perhaps you were also charged with intent to distribute?

DailyPot, are you sure coke is schedule II? That's ridiculous that weed would have tougher penalties than coke.

Yes. Coke does have some accepted medical value(but the government refuses to recognize the medical benefits of marijuana).

Thank You motaman. I could have sworn I search here before and it didn't have a listing for Missouri. Well after reading the above link for Missouri, I'm a bit confused. All 3 of those links specifically mention marijuana only?! Any input on this?
