Howdy. I'm from Alabama and no stranger to the fields. Yet, I've always wondered what would happen if the police ever caught me in a field with a sackful of shroomies. I've heard it is a felony. I always go at night, and I've gotten to the point where I need no form of light but I'm still skeptical about getting caught. Enlighten me.

you will stand a good cance of being charged. if charged and found to be in possession of psilic[yb]in contaning mushromms you stand a good chance of being convicted.

don't chance it, get permission.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

That is if the cops are the ones doin' the busting. A farmer just might do worse though, I wonder whos to fear most. I don;t know bout them bama farmers either, you may end up squealin' like a pig naked in the middle of a dark pasture :smile:

Thanks. I have considered asking permission from the farmer. My idea was to walk up to his house and just ask if I could harvest his fungus... maybe for scientific experimentaion. Also, I'm wondering if he could get me arrested for just asking and secondly if he even knows what the mushrooms in his field actually do.

If you are caught in a field (or anywhere else in the US, for that matter) with a sackful of psilocybin-containing mushrooms, then you can be charged with a felony.

The penalty is listed here under (C), about a third of the way down the page. According to that page, for a first offense you're looking at up to 20 years, assuming there was no associated death or serious bodily injury involved.

Happy mushrooming!

just say you are from a local college and bring some field guides i had a botany project once that required us to go out and collect species from many different habitats i am sure you could type something convincing up

You bring up a good point.

One of the biggest things working against many people is that they have collected only one speces (an active one) in a field with lots of different ones. If you're caught with only one species, intent is fairly obvious. If you're caught with 25 species (only one or two of which are active) then they'll probably have a tough time proving any intent.

If it looks like you're studying mycology, then you've got a straightforward defense. If it looks like you were searching for psychedelics then you're defense is going to be a bit tougher.

Happy mushrooming!
