Mushrooms in Iceland
    #2570877 - 04/17/04 01:54 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Hey everyone,
I was just in Iceland for a week about a month ago, and I did some mushrooms with a group of icelanders. Evidently mushrooms are legal there and the best place to pick them is on the parliament lawn. :thumbup: Any one know what kind of mushrooms they might have been. They were small whiteish yellow mushrooms(I only saw them dry because they weren't growing then), definately didn't look like cubes.
thanks
LOm

That only goes for fresh ones, right Shriek? If "dried or otherwise affected by human hands" they become quite illegal, as I recall...

Here in Sweden, Psilocybe cubensis and P. semilanceata are illegal regardless of their state (unprepared, dried, cooked, etc). Also, other mushrooms containing psilocybin or psilocin are illegal if they are "grown, dried, or in any way prepared".

To reconnect to the topic, Swedish street slang (according to some friends) for P. semilanceata is "Icelandic shrooms".

Mushrooms are illegal in France and Germany and that is a large portion of Europe.

The musrhooms are not legal in Sweeden either. Someone already posted that info above.

They are only legal in Christiana, Denmark, England and oin Holland.

And maybe Fijoi where P. cubensis grows freely in manure.

But than again, who can afford to fly to Fiji?

they sell fresh mushrooms here in norway and grow kits. same with finland. what i said is that i think those country has to adjust themself to other EEC (european economic assosiation) countries sooner or later. this is what happened here in norway.

this has happened here very recently actually, the first norwegian online sale ( http://www.espdb.no/ ) of kits and fresh mushrooms came this year.

they are also legal in UK, scotland, portugal, iceland and more countries too i cant recall all.

Possession of dried psilocybin mushrooms or packaged fresh psilocybin mushrooms is still technically illegal in the UK, and the distribution and cultivation of these materials are also technically serious offenses. That is the letter of the law.

The current boom in the UK shroom market - which has been widely publicized as entirely legal - is in fact a 'dark-grey market' encouraged by Home Office statements that the UK government is not currently pursuing prosecutions based on these laws. However, there have been no legally binding statements about the current application or interpretation of these laws (although there have been many legally garbled statements), and so this policy lies open to being revised without notice. The legislation already in place certainly provides a basis for returning to more severe policing.

Unexpected and even retrospective prosecutions are thus very real possibilities.

I hope these possibilities remain remote, but would advise people not to count on it.

Hi Pluteus.

I was under the impression that the House of Lords held (due to the prosecution of Stevens in 1978) that a mushroom had to be prepared, or "altered by the hand of man" in order to be illegal, and that possession of the mushrooms in their natural state was not an offence. The definition of a preparation has been tightened steadily such that if mushrooms are dried deliberately, frozen, cooked, or otherwise altered they are illegal, but if they were picked in a dry state, or (accidentally :wink: ) dried naturally if kept, for instance, in an open paper bag, possession would not be an offence. Unless there is charring from oven-drying, a forensic scientist is virtually unable to tell whether or not dry mushrooms have been dried deliberately, and that police frequently rely on confessions as to how the mushrooms were dried in order to obtain a conviction.

BiOTeK,

shrooms never completely dry in a natural state. They are biodegrradable and rot down usually, and the slugs and others eat them before they rot completely. OS they would never have a single case of picking dried shrooms already dried in a natueral state.

mj

But fresh shrooms are not illegal. I have all the reports posted at my site from the UK.

MJ

I've found dry P semilanceata specimens on a fair few occasions during late summer. Admittedly they weren't 'cracker' dry but by the time I had driven home in a hot car they were!

Would they be classed as "altered by the hand of man"?

I think not!
