Shops push magic mushroom sales

Shops push magic mushroom sales
May 19, 2005 - manchesteronline.co.uk

LEAFLETS encouraging people to stock up on hallucinogenic magic mushrooms before they become illegal later this year are being handed out in Manchester.

Two shops in the Northern Quarter are taking advantage of a loophole in the law that allows their sale as long as they are fresh and not dried or prepared.

The Drugs Act 2005 will make the importation, sale or possession of the mushrooms punishable by a life sentence.

Home Office minister Paul Goggins, Labour MP for Wythenshawe and Sale, has criticised the leaflets.

He says people should follow the spirit of the law before it is in place and sellers who persist in flouting it can expect a visit from the police.

But Michael Linnell, of drugs advice charity Lifeline, says the government is acting irresponsibly.

He believes reclassifying mushrooms will create a black market run by criminal gangs.

Yeah that seems perfectly reasonable.  :thumbdown:

Someone should put some of these guys in cages for the rest of their lives, all they seem to be able to do is spread hate and war.
