10-99 years
    #4106897 - 04/28/05 02:22 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I live in Texas. Looked up the texas legislature site, and the punishment for possesing more than 400 grams of mushrooms, or cultivation, is "Mandatory incarcaration for not less than 10 years and not exceeding 99"

That's hard-fucking-core. I wonder what prosecuters usually charge people with when a bust happens. It would be up to the pros. to not charge with that full crime huh...


I have to admit to something happening that never really does... I got a little scared.


Just for jollies I looked up California's laws, I would assume they're a little more liberal and therefore leineant on stuff like this. I couldn't find the penal information, but what was interesting it listed the different felonies by the mass, in grams, of the psilocybin an individual would be in posession of. Texas law was a little more clear in including "...400grams of psilocybin including any dilutants or adulterants..."

What I can't help but wonder is if a good lawyer would get them to extract the .9% psilocybin from the 15 pounds of dried mushrooms to come up with a minor possesion charge of just a few grams of psilo.

Wouldnt count on it. I bet they would weight the container they are in too. I think they do that when weighing acid.

Just go to work. Pay your taxes and remember the alamo.

Forget your psychedelic explorations.

Mushrooms are an enemy in the war on terror.

Maybe what America needs is longer prison terms and random closet searching to weed out the terrorists.

Keep voting Republican.

"including any dilutants or adulterants" means that if you had .1g of psilocybin dissolved in 400mL of water, you get charged with 400g of Psy. Sucks doesnt it?

LOL!

I did the same look up not to long ago.

Ok, so we have 10-99 years for 400g of mushrooms, compare that to the following.

SALE OR PURCHASE OF CHILD (term of not more than 10 years or less than 2 years)
INDECENCY WITH A CHILD {engages in sexual contact with the child or causes the child to engage in sexual contact} (term of not more than 20 years or less than 2 years.)
SEXUAL ASSAULT {Rape} (term of not more than 20 years or less than 2 years.)
SALE, DISTRIBUTION, OR DISPLAY OF HARMFUL MATERIAL TO MINOR {Making or selling child porn} (term of not more than 10 years or less than 2 years)
SEXUAL PERFORMANCE BY A CHILD (term of not more than 10 years or less than 2 years.)

DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED WITH CHILD PASSENGER. (180 days in jail)

So the state is saying it is less of a crime to sell child porn than to have 400g of mushrooms?

What a F-ed up world!

You may note that the Sale of 5lbs marijuana is a term of not more than 20 years or less than 2 years.

I think the drug laws are nuts, but what does my opinion matter?

Is this guy serious? What are you doing here?

I guess I'll save myself the trouble of going off on you and wasting valueable keystrokes and minutes, but.....

if you said that to me in person, I'd beat your ass for sure.

yeah, I mean, if you were serious about what you said....

yeah, assbeating

that dude was just being sarcastic which sometimes doesn't get expressed well in text.

About the drug law in texas, I would go with the extraction thing. If I not mistaking there is even less of a charge for having 4 grams. 4 grams of psilocybin is like I think over 200 doses. I doubt they would test to determine potency of what powder you had. Just be very careful.

Thanks for exposing those sick inconsistencies. I agree, this world (country?) is fucked up. Just one little misunderstanding:

This is about "sale, distribution of display of harmful material TO minor", not "INVOLVING minor". It means you can't sell, give or show porn to kids.
