Magic mushrooms in North America before the Wassons?
“Of course, I have no way of knowing if the mushrooms that my great-great Grandfather Daugherty was allegedly harvesting were actually P. cubensis”.
Nor do I know if the Choctaw or Chickasaw tribes even possess(ed) a knowledge of the visionary properties of coprophilic psilocybin mushrooms. I recount this anecdote only as a means of raising the question of whether or not psilocybin mushrooms could have been known to certain esoteric circles in North America prior to the publication of the Wassons’ article in Life Magazine in May of 1957.
