Police arrest 4 during raid at Montreal magic mushroom store… ‘We’re just getting started…’psilocybin dispensary in Windsor, Ont.
Hours after their grand opening Tuesday [7/11/23], a… magic mushroom dispensary in Montreal was raided by police officers. We have been able to open up as soon as a few hours after a raid,” said Edgar Gorbans, “And we have customers that are waiting — as soon as the police leave — for us to continue serving.”
Both John Gilchrist and Edgar Gorbans agree the current debate over legalization of psilocybin is very similar to the path taken when advocates who fought for the legalization of cannabis. Gorbans called it “ridiculous” how long it took to legalize marijuana and he calls on decision-makers to take a “more open minded approach to what it is we’re trying to achieve.” “I think what they’re doing is commendable in the sense that it’s trying to push toward something,” said Jon Liedtke. “What other things can growers do to stay safe legally…? [asks Joe Moore]. “Most people who are growing mushrooms… as long as you are using them for personal use, like, you’re never really going to get into trouble… the only time someone’s going to get in trouble, legally, with doing mushrooms is if you go out in public and do something, you know, bad, to draw attention to yourself. They are so enjoyable to look at… a lot of us grow more than we can use. And it’s just because we love growing the different genetics. It’s just fun… I start giving them away to people who I think could use them… as gifts… you develop a love for the mushrooms…, [says Oliver Carlin].
