    War on drugs a failure, decriminalise now: Branson

    Very true it is much safer. But it is good that he is voicing the issue. If only people would seek this knowledge for themselves instead of going "well if my favourite dumbass celebrity said it I must be true"

    War on drugs a failure, decriminalise now: Branson

    he already said Virgin boss Richard Branson said last night that he would sell legalized cannabis in his stores but not tobacco because it is too dangerous. He said his company would not want to get involved in selling ordinary cigarettes - but he would not rule out promoting cannabis if the law allowed it because it was probably less harmful than tobacco. The millionaire businessman said that to encourage youngsters to smoke would be ‘immoral’. But although he was not advocating the sale of cannabis if it was legalised, he added: "If a cigarette company started selling it at too high a price, I’m sure we’d be in there." legalize in 10 years your kidding right oh you mean 10 years after America legalizes

    the death cap thing was just an example. And i heard that Fly-Agaric is like datura (no fun unless very experienced). Sorry for the issues but it has been fun.lol Icould say more but I talk too much anyway. and i feel this is getting a little off the topic. Sorry for not explaining my intentions a little more, I just really wanted a quick answer. I didn't think people might get a little funny from what I was asking. Anyway I have to say It's been raining for a couple of days now and I went for a walk with the kids and all I can say is Fu#K me i'v never noticed there is different mushrooms everywhere. well daah OH yeah I am going to try and grow now soooo much to go wrong I like the challenge.

    No I don't expect to be successful in my first cultivation, but I will think of it as a learning experience and look at it in a positive way woohoo Look honey I grew mould. Well its half way there. And I don't want to cultivate psilocybin containing mushrooms as that would be illegal but a collection of different spores would be really nice, I mean why wouldn't you hallucinogenic stimulants well anything that can alter your mind I find fascinating. And obviously by the prints you were asking to buy you are interested in the same thing I would not assume that you were going to turn your home into a commercial psychedelic enterprise. All I was doing is asking if I could legally obtain spores. I don't want to "go to Nimbin and buy some" because that would be illegal. I do think the whole drug law is handled very inappropriately and it is obvious we need to change the way we deal with drugs. Most problem drugs are ones that have been synthesised or purified. I mean there is no opium problem but there are opiate derived problems. This forum links straight off shaman australis you could call it a stoner’s paradise but it is not about that. Dude chill out man your harshing my mellow. LOL I’m into permaculture so I stumbled into mycelia through that and also from a couple of TED talks I watched. I really do think shaman tools can help reach enlightenment if not focus your mind. Also turn you into a drop kick that still live with their mum but there are probably reasons behind that. Anyway, so myco any tips how I can, not screw up cultivation and any info on king stropharia like ease of growth how long do they take. Etc. What is the easiest thing to cultivate from scratch I’m thinking of trying Leucocoprinus birnbaumii I found a few (hundred) in the park today and nobody freak out I only picked a couple.

    yeah one spore print is all I need at the moment just really to see what it looks like and if I can cultivate it and if I can learn about what it is etc. but if I screw it up which I will I'm surei will no wait I am sure I already have I wasn't very caring about contaminants but then I wasn't looking at growing it either. It has rained heaps and it is great because it means more chances in my yard. As for the gun remark no that would not be good but If you do want a firearm you can get one yes you do need to prove yourself to get a firearm but you can get one legaly the problems when you have to go underground to get one. Yes I understand that death cap vs straw mushroom there is obvious differences and was a poor example but It obviously happens. I would think it If i had genuine spores I could see side by side difference. Thanks for the info to look for specific symbiotic relationship. I was helped by you before thanks I know now that I have to pay more attention to specifics about fungi i am looking at.

    Yeah I thought as much but I just started looking into Fungi, so I have to start from scratch I was just hoping that I could speed up a collection and experience by buying spore. I do think it is very unsafe that Australia says no to purchasing from a reputable dealer, I have to just have to pick something in the wild and just hope the limited information I can obtain about a species is correct. What happened if I picked up a Death Cap took spores thinking that it was a straw mushroom cultivated it for the purpose of purely cultivating it and one of my kids somehow got to it and I went oh it's ok honey from what I read It is perfectly harmless, now off to bed kids. Or maybe I ate some and thought I'll be ok it's has got to be that chicken we ate like those Chinese a few weeks ago. The government tells you oh be careful you may mistake it http://www.anbg.gov.au/fungi/deathcap.html. I mean if they were legal I could buy certain species and could look at the spore prints spore prints and do some research and then go hunting with some knowledge or go picking come back and if I was unsure I could always get samples and compare.

    Thank you for your quick and informative replies. So it's as I thought, the government likes to keep everything wishy washy. For the good of the people and the fun and amusement of law enforcement.

    I'm unclear of the law around Spore Prints cubensis types. Now I would love to see these under a microscope but I can't figure out where to start, I hoped I hit the jackpot when I found some type of look-a-little-alikes but it was not the case. I have searched a little and found a lot of yes no, legal illegal, I would I wouldn't etc. in a lot of older posts but none give a definite yes or no answer to my question I don't have the time to go hunting and I don't wasn’t to be caught snooping around a farmers property for an illegal type mushroom (people are not very open to that type of window) and If I get caught by the police with a handful of them and I say I am collecting them to take home for spore prints he will not be as understanding and caring like my wife LOL. and I have nothing to trade and this is my second post here I am in no place to ask and I figure the reason there is no Australian psilocybin spore shops is that you have to get the print from somewhere and that would be a banned substance so .... Can I legally buy psilocybin type spore prints for microscopy purpose only from an online overseas dealer or is that a no no due to customs import laws or are spores illegal full stop or where do I stand? Or any other information that can help me to this path of enlightenment.

    Ok so I know what to look for but there is so much variation in shrooms it's hard to tell if I have something Poisonous, hallucinogenic or something edible but this is my dilemma. Well more hopes and dreams. So I found these in my front yard, now to me it looks like psilocybe cubensis (gold tops). But these are my issues, so they say that they should grow in and around cow pats now I’m sure it can also be in just grazed land where crap is been. But I don’t have my front yard mowed by a cow, but I am in a new estate and I am sure that the land I am on was previously crapped on by cow constantly. They also have gold tan top, darker in the centre and lightens out to an almost white near the edge. Their gills are almost white when they first come up and change to a tan colour then a brown to a rusty brown I suppose. The spores are a dark red brown. The smell is like fresh mushrooms. Oh and the most important thing is that it does not turn blue when pinched, BUT they are also quite waterlogged I'll just post the pics, I hope! I have never used a forum before Thank you
