Loc: gone with my shrooms
Phony Magic Mushrooms in the hippie movement.
    #2731741 - 05/26/04 12:32 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Between the early 1960s and 1975, as some from the east coast college circuit learned that some magic mushrooms possibly could be found from Florida to Texas, the mushrooms never became a popular item with west coast hippies or any of the psychedelic movement on the west coast.

In fact, the only known shrooms were the rip-off LSD lace canned in a frozen sealed K-ration tin (un;less you went to MExico where the Federales kicked thousands of hippies out of Mexico).

Often adulterated with PCP to hide the effects of the LSD.

IT was these mushrooms which really broke the straw on the Camels back. I bought a can of these in 1972 after eating shrooms one time in 1968, a half gram which did not really do anything.

My wife and I bought a can of these alledged magic shrooms, supposedely smuggled in from Mexico by the mafia.

I sent them to Pharm Chem labs in late 1972.

See anyone who lived in Lane county, Oregon or Humbolt County, California could have any drug analysed free and paid for by a fund at the U of Oregon.

You would call an 800 number and tell them what you had. They would give you a code number and than a few weeks later you could call in anonomously and give them your number and they would provide you with the actual chemical analysis.

This chart is a partial page form their monthly analytical results of examined drugs.

You can see what the drug is alledged to be, its actual content, a description, origin and cost.

This particular page is from one month in 1973. So you can see how readuilly available these magic shrooms were not.

On another cool note, High Times use to provide the 800 number and mailing address for pharmchem labs in Palo Alto. However, after about five years, Pharm Chem moved and provided a new address for their High TImes Ad.

For three months, one dentist in San Francisco was receiving dozens of drug samples every day to their office which High TImes incorrectly/accidently listed as the new address for Pharm Chem.. A secretary claimed she opened a letter and there was a gram of coke in it.

After that they received hundreds of letters with drug samples.

It took High Times three months to correct that error.

This was orginally in a newspaper article about the dentist office. Unfortunately I never saved that clipping like I normally do save drug news clippings.

That's pretty interesting. It's ironic how much things have changed though; back then shrooms were rare and LSD was everywhere, now it seems to be the complete opposite

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.

LSD was leagal before the last of the "Acid Tests". Those along witht he rest of the hippie movement contributed to people fearing LSD.


Got a question about a substance?  Erowid might already have your answer! Have questions about the  mushroom experience? The  Tripper's FAQ may have your answer or someone else might have had your question before.
