Im no expert- but i think the blueing gives 'em away to the trained eye- As far as I know , no one is looking for shrooms.
Living in NYC, we get stopped by the cops all the time, and once I was carrying - I almost pised myself, but the cop just smelled MJ and said I 'looked' a little tipsy - Since we were in front of a bar , and had been drinking, it was dismissed-
Morale of the story - dont carry shrooms in your purse, or smoke a bone in the street!
Mushrooms are difficult to identify, regardless of the species, even by a trained mycologist. However, the active alkaloids in psychoactive mushrooms can easily be identified in the lab.
Most fresh psychoactive mushrooms will bruise blue, but it can sometimes take thirty minutes or more for the blueing to show up. Some non-psychoactive mushrooms also bruise blue, so this isn't a good test by itself. This also wont work on dry mushrooms... they don't bruise anymore.
Currently, mushrooms are not common enough for most LEAs (law enforcement agencies) to spend money on training for their police or drug dogs (if you can smell it, a dog can be taught to smell it... if you can't smell it, a dog can still probably be taught to smell it).
You will be safer (less likely to get busted) with mushrooms than with a lot of other drugs, but it can still happen. Play safe! :-)
