Magic Mushroom Decriminalisation

Comment 1st July 2010

In 2005 the Labour Government completely banned the possession of the common native free-growing fungus Psilocybe Semilanceata, as well as other strands of non-native psychedelic mushroom. For a government to ban an organism that is not harmful but which yields positive experience is an example of Orwellian state control. Moreover, magic mushrooms are even scheduled as Class A which is simply grossly irrational.

Section 21 of the Drugs Act 2005 therefore should be repealed in order to restore civil liberties and to bring trust back into the political system.

Why does this matter?

The state has no right to tell citizens (or subjects) what they may or may not consume unless it would endanger other people. Perhaps some drugs do endanger others (e.g. alcohol, heroin), but psychedlic fungi certainly do not. It is an outrage that a select group of people in Westminster can issue demands that people across the country cannot pick, grow or ingest something that has grown on these Isles for countless millennia.
