ok well i know the law pretty good and i am still alittle bit fazzy on how mushrooms stand. I know there legal for medical and scientific purposes but thats a thin line i'm sure. can someone push me in the right direction on what is the legal part in growing mushrooms and what is illegal? Help would be really appriciated
I don't think even the medical & scientific thing is legal- psilocybin is Schedule 1 meaning it has no recognized medical value.
A mushroom is considered a "container or delivery device" for the psilocybin, and you can be charged by the weight of the container. By the same logic I regularly walk around with 150lbs of DMT, but this is America and drug laws need not be logical.
Musrooms are pretty much 100% illegal in the US. There is no legal part to growing mushrooms. You can allow them to grow wild on your property, but only if you are unaware that they are psychoactive. Spores are legal unless you live in California, as I do, and one other state which I don't care to look up at the moment. But you may not legally do anything with the spores except admire them. In this state, I think they just make-believe the spores *do* contain psilocybin and bust you accordingly. Even in states where they are legal to buy, having spores in a syringe could reasonably be considered intent-to-manufacture.
On the other hand, the piggies have bigger fish to fry, and you're not likely to get raided or arrested for growing mushrooms unless you're doing it by the ton in a warehouse.
