    As you may or may not be aware, proposed changes to the Misuse of Drugs Act in the UK may soon make fresh Magic Mushrooms a Class A drug. The penalties for possession will be up to 7 years imprisonment plus an unlimited fine, and for supply it’s up to life imprisonment and an unlimited fine.

    The Magic Mushroom Consumers Group (MMCG) is dedicated to stopping the proposed change, in order to keep fresh magic mushrooms legal.


    At the moment we are currently lobbying UK government and we have already uncovered serious flaws in the way that the government’s policy has been decided upon.

    The proposed changes still have to go through several stages before they become law.

    “WHY SHOULD I DO ANYTHING?” I hear you ask.

    The short answer is because you can. Otherwise what will you think of yourself when the first family is broken up because someone is jailed for doing something that harms nobody. It might even be you and your family! Don’t take it lying down.

    “HOW CAN I DO SOMETHING?” – Now, that’s more like it.

    To make a difference we need to do more than just sign an on-line petition or rant about the insanity of it to each other.

    There are many things that will make a difference at this stage.

    at the moment the fresh mushrooms themselves are legal (and allways have been)

    powdered, dried or brewed shrooms have been treated as preparations containing psilocin (and hence classified as a drug).

    Recently the Crown Prosecution Service tried to bust some headshops by saying that putting fresh shrooms into a fridge (or even putting them in a bag) was making a product and hence preparation.

    Luckily, a Court recorder told them to get stuffed as the law on what is and isnt a prepatration was so vague that it was an infringement of the defendants rights to try him (the case was chucked out of court - CPS & government embarrased)

    Now the home seceratary slips a clause totaly banning them in any form into a bill containing loads of other changes to the law (some of them quite cool, like harsher measures for parent/dealers who use thier children to carry hard drugs)

    Please do what you can - even re-posting the original post elsewhere would be a great help.

    Has anyone got any suggestions as to any other forums where I should post, in order to get some support going to keep shrooms legal in the UK?
