Cops raided and shut down… magic mushroom Church in the U.S.
They marched in, seized the church’s… [mushrooms] , and called in firefighters to bust open the church’s safes… To hear police tell the story… [it was] going well beyond what the council allowed by selling mushrooms.
“The council said mushrooms should not be our priority, and they’re not,” said Oakland Police Captain Randell Wingate, who supervises the unit that conducted the raid. “You can use mushrooms, you can grow your own mushrooms – but selling mushrooms is still not legal.” [The Decriminalize Nature] group favors a “grow-gather-share” model, in which small circles of people grow shrooms at home and share them with friends.
