Reader: Shrooms should be legal, but they're cheaper because they're against the law

psilocybin.mushrooms.205x205.jpg
Yesterday, we reported about an odd package that showed up at the Glenwood Springs Post Independent: a box of psilocybin mushrooms. The topic was naturally humorous, but some readers got into a serious debate about whether shrooms should be legal. Here's the take of one person who thinks the status quo might be better than the alternative.

Mushrooms should be legal, but after the whole "regulate marijuana like alcohol" scam, I'd rather keep them illegal than over taxed and over regulated. But totally decriminalized would be nice.

I can't follow your double negatives at all. Making something illegal isn't what's preventing chaos in the streets. You know what drug makes people run around and do "stupid sit?" Alcohol.

I think we should be able to put what we want into our bodies, as long as we don't hurt others in doing so. That said, read up on psilocybin. The main reason it's so psychoactive is that it's essentially poisoning your body and eliciting a chemical reaction that produces hallucinations. Which, again, if you're cool with that, go ahead.
