I heard that shrooms aren't illegal until they're picked and dried. I didn't believe the guy that told me, but he insisted. That's not true is it?

i have heard that this is the case in Canada, but here in the U.S. i really don't think so... a live mushroom in your house would be a manufacturing charge

I think that it has to be growing like outside, say in your garden. Then you could claim ignorance to its species.
But if you have a rubbermaid full of them in your house, claiming ignorance to the law is sort of hard to do.

Naw.. That was the law before... It's been changed since then. They can and will bust you for having fresh/growing ones. Actually, not too long ago someone in BC was busted for a growing operation.

Yeah, that's what I thought. That makes more sense. Does BC = British Columbia?

By Cragith Kilbonith (Kilborn) on Sunday, December 02, 2001 - 11:45 pm:

Im pretty sure in Japan they are legal.
bc=british columbia, yes :)

yes mushrooms are legal in Japan, Thailand and the Netherlands.

Whoa, so could you buy like a wearhouse and grow like 100 kilos a week?

Sneyos, Psilocybian Mushrooms shave been illegal in Thailand since 1989. OF course this does not stop cattle tenders and rice paddie farmers from picking them and supplying them to restaurants in variouus Ilsand resort regions such as the andaman sea or the Ang Thoing Marine National Park in Surat Thani province.

Shrooms are also legal in the Nederlands, fresh shrooms in England, and in Christiana, Danmark.

In the PNW, most people hassled for picking are usually cited for trespassing when picking shrooms in pasturelands.

On the streets, twenty cops might pass you by when you are picking in a puiblic place and then one cop just might stop and hassle you.

Usuallyt a first warning is enough to keep you away from the picking area.

Cops might confiscate the fresh bags of shrooms but usually do not charge you with an offense. they may ask you to step on the shrooms or to go pick somewhere else.

never admit that what you are doing is illegal.

It is an individual descision of the officer if he alone wants to hassle a picker. Most cops do not care.

The busts listed at my site concern growers who produce from 50 to 500 pounds of mushrooms. this is not picking a bag.

And besides that, who needs to have that many mushroms in their possession.

They are gredy and they get in trouble becasue of other drugs like selling pot, acid or cocaine.

Individual growers rarely get busted if they mind their own business and do not tell their friends what they are doing then they doi not get caught.

The police have enough problems with coke, heroin, amphetamine and ecstacy to worry about shrooms.

have a shroomy day,



It is also legal in England to grow P. cubensis as long as they are kept fresh they are not illegal.

Accoding to The North Florida Shroom Guide ( you can't be prosecuted for picking wild shrooms (if you claim you didn't know they were psycedelic) in the state of Florida, but you could get a trespassing charge. Of course growing them or having dry shrooms will get you in a heap of trouble. Take that info with as many grains of salt as you wish, but apparently they have legal precedents to back it up.
