Illegal fungi? Gotta love the Police States of Amerika. The damn cops should be looking for real crime, yadda yadda.

Huh? what kind of headline is that? Sounds more schizophrenic's word-salad than psilocybin.

/Mushrooms do not work that way!

Also, those should NOT be Schedule I. Absolutely ridiculous drug policy in this country. Amazing how many people who are just so goddamn stupid and Republican (I know I know, same thing).

Two hallucinogenic chemicals found in the "magic mushrooms" are Schedule I illegal drugs, in the same category as heroin and cocaine.

Cocaine is a schedule II drug.

FTA: "The Poison Information Network got eight calls about mushroom overdoses in South Florida during the first three months of 2012."

To be fair, Schedule I means the drug has no known medicinal value. Outside of some promising psychotherapy experiments that is pretty much true.

Absolutely ridiculous drug policy in this country

Can't argue with that.

DEA: The hallucinations are similar to those from eating mescaline or peyote, and users are unable to tell "fantasy from reality."


LOL. I could always tell that the marquee of giant stone Inca monuments slowly rotating and dancing around my roofline were fantasy. That and the breathing trees. Nature's fractals mang.

And these mushrooms have been coming up in people's yard here for years. Farking criminals. How dare they live in a place where these things grow naturally.

karmaceutical: No nav lights? Don't break the law when you're breaking the law, dummies!


Exactly. This was Captain Trips' error: giving the salty po-po reason to board (although "suspicion of harbouring a Cohiba" would suffice). No nav lights is in fact not the way to, so to speak, go under the radar, especially so close to a full moon. That says "I died in the cockpit in the afternoon; please retrieve me before the sun and seabirds make an open casket out of the question".

On the upside, I would wager Popeyed has had his mind blown offshore.

Obviously the US federal "scheduling" is majorly FARKed, with Cannabis, "shrooms" and LSD being listed as somehow having "less potential for abuse" than cocaine or PCP.

It is beyond ridiculous that the federal scheduling was originally a product of, and has continued to be championed by, so-called "conservatives".

As for the LEO claims that one "cannot tell fantasy from reality" when on "shrooms", I suppose there could be some truth to that, IF one were to eat massive amounts of a highly potent variety, but in general, when you're "tripping" on shrooms, you KNOW you're tripping on shrooms, and generally don't really confuse what you experience for "reality".

I've certainly never met anyone who tripped on shrooms but thought what they were experiencing was simply "reality".

Annie Plastic is on the case.

That sounds like a lot of fun--cruising around on a sailboat and doing magic mushrooms. I'd probably have to have a companion though, in case I decided to jump over the side and swim to Atlantis or something.

"He had colony upon colony of mushrooms," Plastic said. "He had everything from A to Z."

karmaceutical: No nav lights? Don't break the law when you're breaking the law, dummies!


Absolutely, any time I had more than 80 pounds of weed in the car, I always walked around it first making sure all the lights worked; then I drove 2 mph over the limit with both hands on the wheel, preferably in a nondescript sedan.

Rule #1, don't draw ANY attention to oneself.

You know, if someone had drank shroom tea about an hour ago having a farking sailboat to go along with this would seem like a fantastic idea.

Cocaine was used in dentistry for decades. And heroin certainly calms the nerves.

a clean mercury marquis or a soccer mom minivan, you can load the trunk with bodies. it really isn't hard to blend in. the ford taurus was a great me-too car in the day. ever notice the incredible amount of small white cars on the roads? strangely popular, hard to tell apart. i'm sure 'most popular cars' will vary in regions.

I know that in most cases the Florida tag has trump.
But the Dumbass tag has a strong case here for the boat dude for losing a good harvest of shrooms because he was too stupid to turn on his lights.

Some people need supervision when they think.

How is nicotine not a schedule 1 drug?

Well, I think it is establishment to provide lower sanctions for baeocytin and nor-baeocytin than psilocin and psylocybin!
 
2012-06-05 04:42:38 PM
Sorry about the spelling mistake. Late for lunch. Yeah, no medicinal use is a criterion for Schedule 1.

Nicotine may be indicated for depression. But then again so our mushies. 'Course, we live in a society where Fentynal is considered safer than Heroin. Maybe the drug companies are just runnin' it, using improper moral arguments when logic fails.

So boaters whats the deal with the police on the water ?

If they board your vessel for something as trivial as driving with out your lights, what rights do you have as a boater to refuse search ? I haven't spent much time on the water and have never encountered the police there before.

Pretty much none. The US Coasties can and will board a vessel even outside of US territorial waters. Usually it's under the guise of a "safety inspection" though I was never sure why safety inspections involved automatic weapons, dogs, and chemical swipes on all the interior surfaces.

Other naval authorities can and will board your vessel but they are usually looking for bribes or free stuff -- I'm looking at you Mexico...

CSB bro -- Spent 2001 on a boat sailing down the West coast of North America. I should have never come back...

Running without your nav lights isn't exactly a trivial thing. Peanut Island is not some remote place either. This is like driving the street during a parade with no headlights. It is a sure sign that something is wrong with your vessel.

If I wanted to dissuade people from using mushrooms I would tell them they might feel nauseous and that some people are prone to having bad experiences (anxiety, paranoia, etc).

I guess out-right lies work too.

The USCG will board anywhere, any time for any reason (NINE ELEVEN!!!!) inside the 12 mile limit. Including foreign-flagged vessels.

They will also try it on the high seas. So will pirates.

I am therefore avoiding America and its CG, because I feel me and my Cuban rum were meant to be together, and I'm not American, so skull fark your paranoid fascism on the high seas.

no medicinal value, idiots?

my life as an intravenous drug addict and criminal
was ended by psychedelic experience via a psilocybin analogue.

if that's of no value to society
then it's a society that feeds on pain.

/illegal plants
//private prisons
///men with guns coming between you and the planet

we're living a dystopian nightmare - Thomas Jefferson himself said that when the government tells us what foods and drugs we can take, our souls are as are those under tyranny.

sad times.
planet needs psychedelic consciousness badly.
