I'm sure you weren't going here or anything but if you are selling a mushroom, legal or not, with the intent of it fooling someone that it is an illegal substance, it is still illegal.

members of related genuses, that are in the same family, especially Stropharia. both Psilocybe and stropharia are in the Strophariaceae family. other include Naematoloma. there are a few similarly colored shrooms in that family. the stropharia look similar to P. cubensis in shape. Make sure they are not poisonous if you go out to fool little kids you sick monkey, and dont get fooled by little kids you sucker. they can stick some spray painted grocery store agaricus in a baggie and youll go home and sniff the paint and decide thats its nice cubensis

:smile:

seriously though, i cant think of any off the top of my head, just be careful and if you get something wrinkled and dry in a baggie, snap a photo of it and show us.

What if someone grew legal look-a-like's in their yard for a year or two... Then switched it after having fooled any overly nosey people?

Even if the cops came out to take a sample to have the lab "anal-eyes". They should still be in the clear...

After making fools of em... they might not notice ya pulling a switch-a-roo later on!

this is not a hunting related question. as it would not be well recieved in the cultivation forum i'm gonna lock it and confer with theother mods.

sorry guys.

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.

You know, in general cops are not mycologists. They don't know a lookalike from something that isn't. They seem to operate more off of suspicious behavior than other things. If you're taking the mushrooms and drying them and putting them in plastic bags, they're going to be suspicious. If you're selling the mushrooms (but to people, not groceries or restaurants), then they're going to be suspicious. If you act in any way secretive about them, they're going to be suspicious.

If you grow a lookalike for a couple years, then switch to the "real thing", the cops who come by to investigate will most likely not be the same ones who dropped by before. If you're hesitant to provide a free sample to be analyzed, they'll be suspicious. These days, with stuff like the Patriot Act, suspicious cops aren't something you want, even if you're doing nothing wrong.

About the only way something like that might work is if the cops harassed you so much while growing legitimate mushrooms that you got a court order preventing them from further harassment. Keep in mind that the legal fees from something like that will be very high. And judges aren't idiots - they'll provide for the possibility that you're trying to set everybody up so that you can grow under their noses without suspicion.

Happy mushrooming!
