GGreatOne234 Gets BS letter About Stamets and P. Weilii
    #2931215 - 07/27/04 03:52 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Recently, my good friend form the souotheast, GGreatOne234 received an email from someone claiming to be a good friend of Paul stamets and reportedly told GGreatOne234 the following tale:
Quote:

hey mj,

this guy sent me this message concerning p weilii,

is this stuff correct??

"
It's a fraud and it pisses me off. P. Weilii has only been found one
time. It was found in Telluride, Co. It was named after Dr. Andrew
Weil by Paul Stamets. Spores are not available. I know this because I'm
good friends with Paul and he told me so. He also speaks of it every
year at the Telluride mushroom festival, hoping someone will find another
specimen. So far, it hasn't happened yet.




GGreatOne234 asked me,

Quote:

hey mj,

this guy sent me this message concerning p weilii,

is this stuff correct??




Knowning Paul since 1973 has been an honor and when people make up bullshit stories about friends of mine like Paul it irks the shit out of me.

Here is a page from Paul's book on P. Weilii.

I have the actual published paper at home and maybe somewhere on the internet.

This person is lying to GGreatOne234 and I hope the Great One tears ass.



Mj,

I will be back again here if I can find the paper where I posted it.

I am really shit pissed. I just posted all five pages and then the friggin shroomery froze on the submit post and all five disappeared before Gumby responded.

I ahope GGreatOne tairs this jerk a new asshole. I am top leave for burma and had some beautiful images to pot. now I have to dinhgle and try to repost the images again, This is frustrating and irritating because of idiots who come here with bs stories and spread trollhood.

Pauls published paper so Greatone can send this tot he idiot who lied to him.

And then I just had to repost page one of the article becasue I reposted page three of the article by mistake.

mj












Hd to repost page 5 again also. really irritating.
mj
I did have a few nice comments I made before the submit post failed to respond.

Have a shroomy day.

Watch for my dried cubes form Suphanburi Quai Village. Also had lot of Plurotus, very beautiful buit do not now have time. School is over for me for the day I had to correct English half a day on aaThai students Thesis.

Well the letter was actually sent as a reply in private message to me by someone at mycotopia.

By one of the more creative and talented cultivators who posts over there..

I couldnt really believe his response to me about the p weilii's..
I understand that there is some controversy about if the Psilocybe weilii from Atlanta Georgia is actually Psilocybe caerulescens

Anyways,

And i havent replied to his comments yet.

Oh and i have no idea where Colorado comes from out of all this, because if they were ever found in colorado or anywhere else outside atlanta than i think i would have heard about it already.

Ok, breakfast/lunch time

Keep shroomin
GG

[edit by concrete: user establishes lack of regaurd for sender of message]. Wow! He's a talented cultivator. Is he Paul Staments? No. Does he know him? I'm sure we all know the answer to that.

It sounds to me that the guy is confusing species. There was a single psilocybe found during a Telluride mushroom festival some years ago. But it wasn't P. weilii and I don't think it has an official name. It hasn't been found since and Stamets does mention it every year at the Telluride show. Stamets apparently has a clone of this new unnamed psilocybe and to my knowledge no spores have been released.
