Washington mushroom hunter faces five years in prison for psilocybin

A 63-year-old man named Paul Lee Corbett believed the specimen he discovered was an unidentified subspecies, and he hoped to study and analyze it in detail later… Corbett maintains that he did not commit a crime. ​

The mushrooms in question were large and red, growing in a wood chip pile. There was a sign warning that picking the mushrooms could lead to criminal citation, but the devoted forager ignored it. He also found a more common form of the mushroom growing nearby. He picked ten of the standard mushrooms and ten of the unusual ones. He put them in his vehicle and then turned back to pick more. Then a park ranger arrived, brandishing a firearm.
