"I've been a cop for 17 years, and it's very rare to see mushrooms in this quantity," said Sgt. Andrew Frankel, spokesman for the Berkeley Police Department.

So A pound of dried mushrooms and 699 pounds of substrate?

Had to have been growing them or something to even be able to see the ballpark on that figure from where they were.

They're still cheaper than inkjet ink.

Berkeley police responding to a call about a bickering couple said Monday they found nearly 700 pounds of psilocybin "magic" mushrooms with a street value of $1 million in the house, alongside a massive cultivation and sales operation of the illegal drugs.

Sounds like a lot of bullshiat to me.

They were growing them. That's what the containers are, they are growing chambers. This is no different than the old pot busts where they got a single plant and claimed it was ten pounds because they weighed the plant, the soil, and the container.

When I compare and contrast my behavior when very drunk with my behavior the one time I tripped on mushrooms, I'm just confounded that one is legal and the other isn't.

"Officer, that man had been quietly staring at that street light for the last 30 minutes...Arrest him!"
 
2017-09-26 06:41:30 PM  
Aww, man! I'm claiming BS though. Having grown my own mushrooms, I can't imagine what 700lbs would be like. Certainly not what was shown... And how do they know they were psilocybin? And why are they even illegal?

LOL totally this, man...

No surprise/irony that it was in Berkley on Alcatraz Ave.

2017-09-26 06:46:27 PM  
it will be interesting to see if a good lawyer can squash the search.

They can claim welfare check but unless shiat was right out in the open and completely identifiable it could get dicey

Bingo. All I see in that picture is some fruiting chambers with substrate in them. I'm sure all the pasteurized horse shiat or whatever they are using is heavy but they did not have 700 lbs of dried mushrooms.

Would the smell of that much growth make the neighbors suspicious?
 
2017-09-26 06:57:20 PM  
All I can think of now is all the sad people who will never see enlightenment nor reach spiritual nirvana or whatever.

That would have been a lot of communion wafers at a psychedelic church somewhere..maybe they can claim their freedom of religion was being violated?

that's all I've got. Except I wish someday to have an experience like that myself, but doubt it will ever happen because the mushroom gods just don't like me or something. long story, but nothing happened.

Agreed.  Psilocybin isn't chemically addictive, and has less overdose potential and less overdose danger than alcohol.  It also has very promising medical applications for difficult to treat chronic depression.  Shrooms should be legalized along with mj, with the usual basic restrictions - no driving, no giving it to children.

Mushrooms don't really have a smell in the same way that cannabis can.  The only smell I could imagine might be from the humidity from the growing chambers.

The mushroom farm in Alamosa used shiat to grow them.  I image that is the same here.

Amanitas are nice, but they are no psylocibin mushrooms.  Unless you are taking a MAOI.

slackananda: Not going to make anybody anybody very happy..


I wouldn't go that far.  Muscaria are good, for what they are.  And the benefit is that they are legal (in most places) and easy to identify.

Nah. Besides a slight earthy aroma, mushrooms don't smell. And the substrate they grow on is typically a mix of brown rice flour and vermiculite. The growing chambers are kept closed to keep the humidity up. It's nothing like growing weed indoors where you may need active fan ventilation.

FYI it's not hard to grow mushrooms.
