why a pressure cooker and fireworks for shrooms?

"Hey, let's post the name and mugshot of a minor who was arrested.  The public needs to know!"

I understand the pressure cooker for shrooms (good for trying to grow shrooms in a dorm room closet)...but yeah, were the fireworks for post-shroom-ingestion?

Wouldn't conspiring to manufacture a controlled substance or dangerous drug still be a crime?

I walked into a church with a sealed and modified pressure cooker the other day.  They asked what it was and I explained it was for my protection in case someone bad entered the building, and they made a big deal out of it.  People are so touchy these days.

So I can throw it at the bad people, the lid won't come off.

Frank Reynolds was arrested and taken to jail for possession of illegal drugs and paraphernalia. He was released Sunday when his parents bailed him out.

Those are totally separate charges in regards to the K-2 and pipe... just a slap on the wrist for a 17 year old, most likely PTI.  I'm saying the little ass is lucky after admitting much larger things to the FBI.

Thanks for the warm welcome, though!

You can, but they have to be less than 4 fl oz capacity or something.
Of course, at Pressure Cooker Shows they sell Tactical Pressure Cookers made from a special polymer that evades xray detection, some of which are also full-auto, and black, with rails for sights and laser things...

A pressure cooker is a cheap autoclave. Growing mushrooms requires an extremely sterile environment.

CHECK ALL THEIR SHOES.  Underwear bomber FEEL UP EVERYONE.  Pressure cooker bomber OH NOES, BEWARE OF THE PRESSURE COOKERS!  This is what we get for perpetuating the idea that weapons, and not people are the source of all evils.  The 2nd amendment supporters tried to tell you that anything can and will be used as a weapon, but many people don't listen, and this is what we get.. paranoia about pressure cookers.  I guarantee that the lunacy this will devolve into, has not run its course.  Sure, it's sad that 3 people died and many were injured, but no matter how vigilant we are as a society, we will not stop things like this from happening.  It's best not to further exacerbate our problems with ineffective paranoia.

Modified pressure cookers also make great moonshine stills. Not that I would EVER do something like that.

Hell, in MA you can't even buy one. They've been pulled off the store shelves. Like really, THAT's going to protect us? Nobody ever heard of iron pipe? It's available at Home Depot, Lowes, and any other home improvement store you can find. That combined with a little gunpowder and a fusing arrangement and BOOM!

Growing only the shrooms you want, and not any random spore or mold, requires a very sanitized environment.  People growing at home don't use cow poop.

I may have read something somewhere about growing, and I don't understand the fireworks and fertilizer.  Though, they may be reporting diatomaceous earth as fertilizer.

I have a friend who got a call from the Feds in the days right after the bombing, because he had bought a pressure cooker of the same model on Craigslist. They made him take a picture of it for them to prove he still had it.

The pressure cooker is used to sterilize the growing jars prior to planting. Spores are extremely sensitive to bacteria etc.

I remember reading an article a few years ago about some type of supposedly painless suicide method popular in Asia that involved household chemicals. So yeah, kids in the US caught onto it, and it became a "trend" if you can call it that. The problem was, sure, you died quickly and painlessly or whatever, but the gas was still floating around long after your death and it would only take a few breaths to kill a passerby.  So pretty much every town where one of these suicides happened, stores started pulling the chemicals from their shelves, even though that just forced people to hop to other towns to buy the chemical, or well..just shop online for it. Derp. Nothing solved really.

tl;dr banning pressure cookers, or household chemicals like in this CSB, is just a bandaid for the problem, seriously. It might work for a while, but they're gonna have to approach this from another angle if they wanna truly put a stop to it.

/also doesn't help when news anchors make damn sure that everyone knows what a pressure cooker is.

Getting slow at work so I have more time to punch some keys... I wanted to chime in on the SC trifecta that was in play yesterday (born and raised CHS area) but then the whole 6-hour delay for new posters.

And I know he got popped for the spice and pipe but I was just saying he's lucky that after  admitting to the FBI his intent to manufacture an illicit substance he was charged with conspiring to do so.

Just wait..Schumer and Feinstein are going to introduce legislation to register pressure cookers.  And if the senate can get their act together, they will pass legislation requiring you to submit to a background check before you can purchase a pressure cooker.

You use the pressure cooker to steralize your grow medium so you don't get funguses that arent your mushrooms growing in there and killing you when you eat them.
