I'm waiting for mushrooms to work their magic
    #3029393 - 08/20/04 07:00 PM (13 years, 4 days ago)

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/opinion/main....8/ixportal.html


In the interests of investigative journalism, I am writing this on drugs - Cambodian magic mushrooms, which I've just bought from the Magic Mushroom Company's stall in Camden Market, down the road from my flat.

Because of the ludicrous hodge-podge of drug laws, the mushrooms are perfectly legal as long as you don't dry them out or boil them in tea. So I'm in the clear, munching them now, fresh from the stall. But, as they sit in my kitchen, drying in the August heat, of their own accord and against my will, I'm on the verge of turning criminal.

The Government's attitude to these mushrooms is schizophrenic. While criminalising them in their dried or boiled state, it does all it can to tax you when they're in their natural, legal state. Last week, Customs and Excise slapped 17.5 per cent VAT on them.

Seven of the little brown mushrooms cost ?10 in Camden, which is about 30 times the cost of unhallucinogenic mushrooms. Admittedly, they have to be imported from Cambodia but, when the growing season hits England in the autumn, Camden's mushroom sellers can pick the even more powerful Liberty Cap mushrooms, growing wild on Hampstead Heath, for nothing. All in all, it makes for a tidy little earner for the stallholders, and for the Government. It would make much more sense to make the mushrooms, and all other drugs, entirely legal; nothing is more likely to make them unfashionable.

Yesterday, the legal mushrooms were not selling well to the hordes of teenagers trudging past the stall. I was the only one buying them.

"Business is very bad on a Tuesday, sir," said the polite, well-spoken stall-holder.

As for the effect, the packet promised that the mushrooms were "Famed in their native Cambodia for their ability to produce euphoria with peripheral visuals which last for five to six hours."

Nothing has happened yet.

This above comment about they are "Famed in their native cambodia" is complete Bullshit. those comments are copied from an Amsterdam shop selling hawkseye strains of Cubensis prints i brought back from Cambodia to america and gave tot he hawk.

The Nederlands sell all shrooms with a medical rap sheet of ojjective effects changing the main effect depending on the species of Psilocybe, Copelandia or P. tampanensis or p. mexicnanus (P. cubensis).

Mj English sellers use the same sheets to promorte their sales which they copy or imitate fromt he Nederland sales of magic fresh shrooms.

The shop in the UK is perpetuating a lie regarding their popularity in Cambodia.
The only people who know of Cambodian mushrooms are usually tourists who sometimes come across them. While restaurants in Cambodia, especially int he Capuital and in Xiem Riap, do not serve omelettees, shakes or smoothies, soups or pizzas with shrooms.

They do however, server pizza's with ganja on them for about *8.00 US for a 7-8 inch pizza with about an half ounce of pot ont he pizza.

My friend from Laos said that his grandmother used to make chicken soup with weed in it.
