Hi there peeps I'm sure I have read this somewhere, but just wanted confirmation. The picking, growing and consumption of magic mushrooms is perfectly legal in the U.K. It's is only once the said mushrooms are dried or preserved that the doer is breaking the law. Is this true?
-------------------- Right, who's buying the next round?
United Kingdom Psilocybin and psilocin are both illegal to possess and sell in Britain. Fresh magic mushrooms are legal to possess. One cannot be prosecuted for possessing freshly picked or cultivated mushrooms unless their have been prepared for consumption in some way (generally drying). Dried magic mushrooms have a Class A drug status, which means that the prison sentence for possession and distribution could be similar to that of other Class A drugs such as L.S.D, Heroin, Cocaine & Crack, but even dried shrooms are not considered a major priority. It is uncommon for someone to be seriously prosecuted for simple possession, and 'accidentally dried' mushrooms have generally been overlooked.
So, yes looks like your right, but I'm sure if the police found you cultivating they would try and find a way to arrest you. The drug laws are totally fucked up aren't they?
