WHY DEADLY DRUG IS STILL PERFECTLY LEGAL

WHY DEADLY DRUG IS STILL PERFECTLY LEGAL


10:30 - 06 May 2004

Magic mushrooms look harmless. They are legal and readily available at your local market. But they contain a Class A drug and bring on hallucinations similar to an LSD trip. Aleisha Scott reports ...

YOU can cook them up in a soup, as tea or even in an omelette, but magic mushrooms are no ordinary vegetable.

The Aztecs called them the flesh of the gods and they were a staple of the psychedelic movement in the 1960s.

Also known as shrooms, mushies, liberty caps or fly-agarics, magic mushrooms, both raw and cooked, can have a hallucinogenic effect similar to cannabis or, in a stronger dose, can induce LSD-like trips.

Most types of mushrooms contain psilocin, a hallucinogen, and psilocybin - both controlled Class A drugs.

Fly-agaric mushrooms contain mycoatropine and muscarine chemicals which irritate the brain and have a hallucinogenic effect. They can also cause sweating, delerium and result in coma or even death.

Yet magic mushrooms are not controlled under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 and are perfectly legal to sell and eat in their natural raw form. But it is a criminal offence if the mushroom is altered from its natural form by cooking, freezing, drying or packaging for sale.

A conviction for possession of a prepared magic mushroom can lead to a maximum of seven years in prison and an unlimited fine.

Conviction for supply or intent to supply can lead to life imprisonment and an unlimited fine.

Magic mushrooms grow wild in Britain but are generally imported for sale from Holland. They can be eaten raw or cooked, heated with water to make a tea or soup, or added to an omelette or another dish just like non-hallucinogenic mushrooms.

It can take about an hour for the mushrooms to take effect.

If a mushroom contains only a small amount of the hallucinogenic substances the person will feel relaxed - a feeling similar to using cannabis. A higher dose can induce a LSD-type trip which could last six to 12 hours.

The physical effects of a 'shroom' trip include increased heart rate and blood pressure, dilated pupils, and mild stomach upset. Some species of mushroom can be highly poisonous and symptoms of mushroom poisoning can take from 20 minutes to 40 hours to manifest.

The most common symptoms are vomiting, diarrhoea, jaundice and breathing difficulties.

As with LSD, tolerance to the active ingredients in hallucinogenic mushrooms develops quickly and it may take twice the original dose to produce the same effect after the first trip.

Mushrooms are now sold in four common varieties, with increasing hallucinogenic effects from the Mexican, the Colombian and the Thai to the Philosopher's Stone.

Oasis, a charity which supports families affected by alcohol and drug misuse, is concerned that magic mushrooms were readily available at Lincoln's market.

Co-ordinator Terry Walter said: "Magic mushrooms are not as harmless as people may think. Anything that is a mind-altering substance is dangerous.

"I think the law on the sale of magic mushrooms should be tightened up.

"It is worrying to know they are on sale to anyone in Lincoln. I think that the fact that they are readily available must be a temptation to children. But if someone wants to get hold of drugs they will do."

Fly-agaric mushrooms contain mycoatropine and muscarine "chemicals which irritate the brain and have a hallucinogenic effect. They can also cause sweating, delerium and result in coma or even death."

amanita muscaria does not contain muscarine. -- a cholinergic mycoatropine

"Conviction for supply or intent to supply can lead to life imprisonment and an unlimited fine."

not to mention crucifixion and anal spikes.

"Mushrooms are now sold in four common varieties, with increasing hallucinogenic effects from the Mexican, the Colombian and the Thai to the Philosopher's Stone."

lets get some colombia, no doubt collected originally from colombine!!!!

""It is worrying to know they are on sale to anyone in Lincoln. I think that the fact that they are readily available must be a temptation to children. But if someone wants to get hold of drugs they will do." "

the biggest buzz going around i hear is bullshit.
im ALWAYS finding it.

why just now somebody offered me some killa shit

Need I say more?


It's interesting how they lump Fly Agaric mushrooms in there, which are a completely different drug. It's probably so they can call them a "DEADLY DRUG". Simply one of the worst written articles I've seen.

I'd say we should write letters to the editor, which might be a good idea. While they might not exactly print a retraction, perhaps it will stop them from printing this garbage in the future.

There is an e-mail addy at the bottom of the article. I'll see about writing something up this weekend some time. Got to go to sleep now.

'DRUGS' NO LONGER ON THE MARKET [Re: motaman]

'DRUGS' NO LONGER ON THE MARKET


10:30 - 07 May 2004

A Market stallholder has been told to stop selling "drugs" after being exposed by the Lincolnshire Echo.

Yesterday it was reported how a stall in Lincoln's indoor market was selling hallucinogenic magic mushrooms.

Now, after a council investigation, trader Joanne Saddington (28) has agreed to stop selling the mushrooms.

A Lincoln City Council spokesman said: "Council officers yesterday met with the stallholder and asked her to stop the sale of the drug immediately. She has agreed.

"While the police fully accept that the sale of untreated magic mushrooms is legal, they are in full support of the council's stance."

The sale of fresh mushrooms is legal but once they have been boiled or frozen they become a Class A drug.

Using them can result in a seven-year prison sentence.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

I would if it would at all sway anyone's opinion, but most of these people are close minded.

"..does Class A absolutely guarantee that they is better quality?"
(Ali G)

**Magic mushrooms grow wild in Britain but are generally imported for sale from Holland.**
Yeah right the ole "blame Holland" routine. Lotsa smartshops here in Holland used to sell Liberty Caps from most notably Scotland when in season.
Sure, some drug-tourists stuff mushrooms from Holland in their backpack when returning to the UK but anybody with an internet connection and a taste for mushrooms knows that two spores can easily yield two billion spores and that smuggling something internationally thats either 6 years in jail or 6 weeks in your bedroom closet :wink: is pretty dumb.

If it grows wild its remotely imaginable (I've seen an English backpacker hand over a pound of dried Liberty Caps to a Dutch shopkeep over 5 years ago :evil:) but it would be odd that Britain would be the only country in the world that doesnt grow them.

"Some species of mushroom can be highly poisonous and symptoms of mushroom poisoning can take from 20 minutes to 40 hours to manifest.
The most common symptoms are vomiting, diarrhoea, jaundice and breathing difficulties"
Gee it must be a party because somebody brought a lot of whine :mad:

I hate it when people "write down" to their audience. Almost everybody who takes time to read it instead of briefly hedhunting past it can see it is full of innuendo. Take one thing, take another and imply stuff.

"These dangerous mushrooms are related to the immensely poisonous 10.000 ft mushroom that grew near Bikini Atol. This highly poisonous mushroom grew from under an LSD and local bedazzled GIs fondly called it the Baker Shot. This poisonous LSD mushroom is related to the ones sold at Lincoln's Market."
(LSD = Landing Ship Dock.. it checks out guys  :smirk:)

"Anything that is a mind-altering substance is dangerous."
Depends on what's on your mind Aleisha.. At least the druggies come down after 6 hours while you remain f*cked up without the luxury of a drug to blame it on.
Like the great Guru said:

Bitch, -please-  :rolleyes:
