mushroom cash crop - legal growing at home
    #2300498 - 02/04/04 02:07 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Magic mushrooms are cash crop

Ellen Timiney's home, on an otherwise ordinary Plymouth street, is a haven for hallucinogenic mushrooms. Step inside her Plymouth flat and you are greeted by the moistness which mushrooms demand. She has turned the burgeoning demand for the fungi into a business, by growing magic mushrooms for sale. Ms Timiney grows them legally, then distributes the crop to cafes and shops across the South West. It is part of a retail boom in the psychedelic fungi which have a similar effect to LSD.

It is the processing of the mushrooms, such as drying or freezing, that is currently prohibited. Ms Timiney gets around the law by selling her mushrooms fresh. Opponents claim, however, that while the mushrooms may be legal, they are still dangerous. I don't consider magic mushrooms as a drug - they are very spiritual things to take


Ms Timiney, 29, has set a room aside in her home to mushroom growing. Cultures, available on the internet, are bred in clinical conditions and fetch about ?160 a kilogram. Ms Timiney said: "We have quite a small operation, but we can produce 10 kilos of mushrooms a week."

She does not see herself as a drugs baron. "I don't consider magic mushrooms as a drug. They are very spiritual things to take. "In many countries they are called the mushroom of God because they give you a sense of talking to God. But obviously if you have a mental health problem it is better not to take magic mushrooms," she said.

"We have had no problem with the police at all and we fully intend to stay within the law as we understand it. A spokeswoman for Devon and Cornwall Police confirmed she was not committing an offence.

Gary Wallace from the Plymouth Drug Action Team said: "Any plant or fungus that has a psycho-active element is a drug. It is also the case the hallucinogenic drugs such as magic mushrooms and LSD can affect the mental health of people that did not know they had a mental illness. So it is irresponsible to claim that any drug is risk free."

He said that legally, selling magic mushrooms was a grey area, but there were no plans to change the law. "You can either prohibit it and risk handing everything over to the criminal world, or you can apply the law such as trading standards, but that is an issue for the government."

"It is also the case the hallucinogenic drugs such as magic mushrooms and LSD can affect the mental health of people..."

Ahhh.. the typically misinformed government worker :smile:

The similarites between LSD and mushrooms are like that of a roller skate wheel to a Nascar racing tire!

They may both be round, but they're two totally different things.

I wish people would know what they're talking about before making such unintelligent quotes.

Again a little urban legend in here. The lady says:
Quote:

"In many countries they are called the mushroom of God because they give you a sense of talking to God.




Mar?a Sabina said that, "Before Wasson came, no one took musrhooms to talk to god."
I find this funny because the Westerners are the onlyones who took mushrooms to talk to God. The Mazatecs di and do not take shrooms to talk to god or to see god. It was the white man who brought this to light.;

The mazatecs took them to heal.

As did the Aztrecs but they also partied with them to some certain extant.

?160 a kilogram?

160.00 EUR = 200.500 USD
1 EUR = 1.25312 USD
1 USD = 0.798005 EUR

There are about 32 ounces in a kilogram... so does this mean that
$200.00 / 32ounces = $6.25/oz?

If so, how is that a fucking cash crop? Too bad that isnt the US, because 1 ounce goes for about $320 here, heh.

Thats one hundred dollars a fresh pound. That means that there are only 32 doses to that Kilo sinc eit takes one fresh ounce or more to be equal to 3-5 dried grams.

Well 10 Kilos a week equals almost $3000, which I'd consider quite a good cash crop :wink:

Dried prices here are often lower than fresh, which I've always thought strange considering the extra effort needed to dry them out and considerably more risk selling them..

Tho Maria also says in her biography that as a child she took them and felt she had contacted God who had given her a new hope in life. She also says "I saw and knew God" when she took shrooms. Maybe she was just telling the interviewers what they wanted to hear.

Surprising there's not more of an international market really.. maybe there is but it's small and kept quiet. $240 would buy more like 3 or 4 dry oz here.
I've seen a couple of places that send freshly picked shrooms to the U.S but I can't imagine they arrive in a very good condition :tongue:
