Busted For Growing Hallucinogenic Mushrooms

Busted For Growing Hallucinogenic Mushrooms
WOKR-TV

(Macedon, NY) 11/12/04 - A Livingston County man accused of growing hallucinogenic mushrooms will now take a trip through the legal system.

Police say they'd been onto Gregory Liptak, 26, since May when they were following reports of several overdoses in surrounding counties.

Police found more than $30,000 worth of mushrooms growing inside Gregory Liptak's Livingston County home when he was arrested.

The set-up to produce the drugs was a storage shed made into a mushroom growing chamber. Most of the equipment for the lab could be picked up at a hardware store. Police said it’s the biggest lab they've encountered in the area.

The neighbors suspected nothing; Dick Roberts said, "I see people around the house...but I’m not around enough to know the difference."

Liptak graduated from Cornell with a degree in microbiology and the know-how to grow the mushrooms. His growing trays pumped out thousands of dollars in mushrooms each week.

He admitted to police he broke into the microbiology lab at Strong Hospital to use sterilizing equipment he needed.

He was an employee at the hospital at one time and had an ID badge.

Police said the mushrooms were good quality but those who overdosed--just ate too many.

In some cases users were becoming violent, sometimes with cops, which is why police said that getting to Liptak was key.

Sgt. John Colella Macedon Police Department said he feared they would see more violence unless they located the source.

Police said Liptak started growing the mushrooms in his sophomore year in college and was able to refine the technique over the years.

Liptak admitted he could rake in about $2,000 to $3,000 a week selling the drugs.

Liptak had moved his lab from a house in Macedon to the one in Livingston County which is why it took awhile to arrest him.

What bothers me is that they say people were "overdosing".
