Oakland Police Raided the Town’s Only Magic Mushroom Church
    #26892252 - 08/21/20 08:29 PM (1 month, 3 days ago)

In an only-in-the-Bay-Area turn of events, the Oakland Police Department raided the country’s most prominent psychedelic “church” and magic mushroom dispensary last week.

Its minister, Dave Hodges, told Vice News that armed cops busted into Zide Door Church of Entheogenic Plants on Aug. 13 and seized $200,000 in cash, cannabis and several strains of psychedelic mushrooms; no one was arrested. Though the Oakland City Council voted to decriminalize hallucinogenic fungi possession and consumption last year, that policy doesn’t extend to sales. And according to police, Hodges received several warnings to shut down the operation, which their warrant described as an unpermitted cannabis dispensary.

“The council said mushrooms should not be our priority, and they’re not,” said Oakland Police Captain Randell Wingate told Vice News about the raid. “You can use mushrooms, you can grow your own mushrooms—but selling mushrooms is still not legal.”

Going live on Instagram on Aug. 20 with mushroom advocate @Oakland_Hyphae, Hodges characterized the raid as a misuse of city resources and an infringement on his religious rights. Firefighters were deployed to break into the Zide Door safe during wildfire season, he pointed out, and he questioned the police’s use of resources on the raid during a summer in which homicides are up from last year.

“The amount of Oakland manpower—that is there to be protecting people and saving people’s lives—[used] to come raid a church is insane,” he said. So far, no charges against Hodges have been filed.

I mean - compared to other areas, that is pretty generous

Kinda makes me want to move to Oakland! 

If we could all just get this point, this place, this reality.  One day, my brother, one day.

Pretty interesting. Almost anywhere else there never would have been any warnings and some jail involved.

No, no, no... It is legal to grow mushrooms now, as long as you use them wisely. This is the secret understanding that will one-day be not so secret.

It is always at the discression if law enforcement to not enforce the law. The personal well-being of the community is taken into account.

These are powerful substances. Intent is hard to control, but being a good person is very lawful. Very nice to see some jurisdictions saying it loud and clear.

It is Oakland.  For those that have been there it is shit.  With corruption, poverty, and crime.  It is a cesspool. 

Anything progressive is moot.  Why should this come as a surprise to some?  Oakland will implode from complete lack of conscience and just lost people.  All I got when a long while back since it is cheap by California standards thinking of going to a community college, yes, Cal would of been better but am poor and toured it and it was like, no way in hell.

Sorry you lost your Raiders to Vegas.  Nothing rarely good or progressive comes from that city. 

At least the police force, Mexico style corruption, has their sights set on what is really important.:confused:

To be honest it sounds like their whole operation was sloppy af. Selling weed out of your shroom church is just asking for trouble.

How long ago did you live in Oakland? And how long did you live there?

A more appropriate title for this article.
Shithead losers fuck with shithead losers.

Always someone out there wants to make a church to sell people drugs. Show people how to grow their own mushrooms if you're not a dickhead
