MAGICAL DEFENCE OF DRUG ACCUSED

MAGICAL DEFENCE OF DRUG ACCUSED


09:38 - 22 April 2004

An artist caught with 73 bags of magic mushrooms at the Glastonbury pop festival told a jury yesterday he was not intending to sell them - he was going to use them to make a model of a volcano Stephen Thomas, 43, pleaded not guilty at Bristol Crown Court to possessing a Class A drug with intent to supply.

And after a day of deliberating on his unusual defence argument the jury was unable to agree a verdict and was discharged.

The Crown Prosecution Service has a week to decide whether to have the case re-tried or drop the charge.

Prosecutor Paul Cook said that on June 27 last year Thomas was spotted stuffing the mushrooms into a bag by security guard James Mc-Kinney at the pop gathering.

Thomas, who at the time was high on psilocin - the fungi's hallucinogenic chemical - made a dash for freedom but was caught and handcuffed by police.

His false wig and ponytail fell off in the struggle - at which he allegedly said to officers: "That was my cunning disguise - it didn't work did it?"

They discovered he was carrying 73 bags of dried mushrooms, which he told them he intended to sell for ?10 each - although later he denied any intent to sell the packages.

In a police interview Thomas boasted that he could consume "a couple of hundred at one time because his body had got used to them," said Mr Cook.

Thomas admitted drying the mushrooms, picked near his home in Sheffield, to prepare them for consumption.

He said he only learned that magic mushrooms were a class A drug when other detained festival goers told him after his arrest.

Asked what he intended to do with the 73 bags he told the jury: "I was going to make a magic mushroom sculpture in the Green Field (the hippies' field at Glastonbury)."

"I was going to make a sculpture of a volcano and gaze up at it."

The jury must have just been like, "Fuck...We cant convict this guy"

Thats wild...

After one comes, through contact with it's administrators, no longer to cherish greatly the law as a remedy in abuses, then the bottle becomes a sovereign means of direct action.  If you cannot throw it at least you can always drink out of it.  - Ernest Hemingway

If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it.  In the law courts, in business, in government.  There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.    -Cormac MacCarthy

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.  - Aeschylus
