Alaska pilot says he took ‘magic mushrooms’ 2 days before allegedly try to stop plane mid-flight

And if cannabis legalization has shown us anything, it’s that there’s always someone inclined to bite off more than they can chew with edibles. Adding digestive and delayed reactions to the mix is a dangerous game for users who want instant effects and tingly gratification from magic mushrooms, which can take anywhere from thirty minutes to two hours to kick in, similar to cannabis edibles. Neither of these intoxicants were popular among the masses before their statewide legalization or decriminalization in Colorado, and recreational cannabis edibles led to a string of freakout stories ranging from funny to tragic in the early days of legalization… New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd ate a candy bar with 100 milligrams of THC in her Denver hotel in January 2014, the first month of adult sales in Colorado, claiming she didn’t receive any instructions from the retailer. With no serving sizes on the products, Dowd consumed the entire thing and went through your standard edibles freakout, causing her to miss a Jimmy Buffet concert with then-Governor John Hickenlooper. She wrote about the ordeal in witty detail, putting the newly legal cannabis industry into a freakout of its own.
