"Dude... is that an alligator?"

"Man, you're trippin'."

I know for a fact alligators hate mushrooms.

Park rangers are the biggest dicks of law enforcement.

Bucky Katt: I know for a fact alligators hate mushrooms.


I would hate to run into an alligator on mushrooms while on weed. Or an alligator on weed while on mushrooms. Or an alligator on weed AND mushrooms. Come to think of it, I'd hate running in to an alligator at all.

I'm all for the legalization of marijuana, but not sure how I feel about mushrooms. While I'm not particularly opposed to the use of hallucinogenic mushrooms for recreational purposes, the risk of someone becoming very sick or dying from ingesting a bad one is pretty high.

If mushrooms were legal, I assume we'd see an increase in legitimate growers and the quality and safety might improve significantly. But with MJ now legal in two states, maybe that ought to be enough for the general public for now.

As for alligators, those should definitely require a license and special insurance because when they bite a kid, it's very dangerous.

Did the alligator stand in for the snake?

You can seriously be charged with illegal possession of an alligator?  I mean, do they have alligator licenses?  Can you get a concealed alligator carry permit?

This is just a viral marketing stunt for the next Trailer Park Boys movie.

Green and scaly? Check.
Long snout and big mouth? Check
Full of lots of sharp, pointy teeth? Check.

Yup. It's an alligator.

Why?  Too much freedom for Americans is scary?

They got lucky that they were only charged for the drugs and the alligator in the bandanna. Apparently the cops chose to ignore the talking giant butterflies, the bleeding walls, and the Pegasus reciting dirty limericks.

Now that the US is again beginning to allow research into psilocybin and psilocin (something that fully stopped during the drug scare of the late sixties) you can bet we're going to be hearing more and more about therapeutic treatments for a variety of different neurological and psychological disorders.

Already, there is research demonstrating that single doses of psilocybin can cause positive, permanent psychological changes. Moreover, and mushroom's effect on personality is something Farkers should rapidly embrace: after the age of 30 or so, one's personality tends to ossify and is extremely resistant to change, whether intentional or otherwise; mushrooms/psilocybin keep the mind limber and can facilitate these otherwise near impossible personality changes.

Psilocybin can be both scary and dangerous if done alone (both of which can be adressed quite easily), or if done with the juvenile intent of "getting high."  Psilocybin is pharmacologically amazing, and it's absence from medical research during the last 40 years has caused a staggering deficit in both our understanding of the mechanisms of the human mind and our ability to address and ultimately alter the human condition. Expect some blow-your-socks-off research to come out in the following years.

As far as legalization - the only way I ever see it happening is as part of the blanket legalization of all drugs. It's entirely too powerful in its alteration of perceptual reality to be allowed OTC. I would be completely happy if, instead of legalization, the penalties for mushroom possession were rolled back to something more representative of their dangers. Right now, possession of an effective dose is a felony in most states.

BTW - it takes about twenty minutes of research to learn how to accurately and consistently identify the most common psychoactive species. Anyone harmed by accidentally ingesting poisonous species is too goddamn stupid to live.

No Cross-Canadian Ragweed reference yet?  Well then...

"Them boys in Louisiana got trouble growin' their weed
Them alligators is mean, and they eat up all the seeds
But on a bayou night by the light of a full moon
You can walk out and pick you a sack full of 'shrooms

Them boys from Oklahoma roll their joints all wrong
They're too damn skinny or way too long
I ain't no holy roller so I just use a bong
Them boys from Oklahoma roll their joints all wrong"

There shouldn't be a penalty at all unless you're reckless and take too much, put yourself in a dangerous situation, DUI, etc.

Ideally, it would be set up as a license to trip with different levels.  A light dose can be safe for anyone not mentally ill, then move up from there.  Different people have different tolerances, body masses and mental capacities for trip, so a safe dose isn't the same for everyone.
