  1. Reminds me I have to go and pick the ripe ones now!
  2. All around the world yo! The Israeli Knesset, the country’s legislative body, is moving to decriminalize marijuana with a vote set for this week. If the new law passes, it would replace jail time for most of those guilty of cannabis possession with civil fines. The Labor, Welfare and Health Committee approved the bill Monday and has advanced it to the full Knesset for consideration. The final vote on the measure is expected as soon as Tuesday.
  3. Hmmm, smells like a new financial year: Australians have a more progressive stance to cannabis reform than current laws reflect. A poll conducted by the Greens this week found that the majority of Tasmanians support the decriminalisation of recreational use of cannabis in the state. This is in line with the findings of the latest 2016 National Drug Strategy Household Survey (NDSH Survey) showing Australians largely support the decriminalisation of cannabis and the use of medicinal cannabis, and a growing number support full legislation of cannabis. It's good and that, but since when did laws reflect public opinion? I'm just glad that now we are being told that we support legalisation now, instead of being told it's poison. What will they tell us next?
  4. Anyone familiar with Ganoderma? I reckon this dead tree is riddled with them. Just so happens to be on the fence line of some of the most prolific psilocybe fields in SEQLD... Any feedback welcome!
  5. More of this I say from Australian senators: Last month I introduced into the Senate a bill to repeal all Commonwealth laws restricting cannabis use, transport and production. If passed, it would leave marijuana regulation entirely to the states. I also succeeded in convincing the Senate to hold an inquiry into my bill and the complex issues it raises. This will occur over coming months. If the government can get over the pearl-clutching and puritanism that characterises drug debate in Australia, the days of slavishly following the agenda of Harry Anslinger will be numbered.
  6. Mmmm, Prince of Flowers.
  7. Just in case you didn't know, because there's been fuck all coverage that I've seen: Canada has become the second country in the world to legalise recreational marijuana, although locals will have to wait at least a couple of months before they can legally buy it.
  8. That dude should get a job formulating drug policy!
  9. Why don't they just go the whole hog and intro the 'You're busted because I don't like the look of you' law... oh wait, we already have that one don't we? Different name perhaps?
  10. Bro, didn't I trademark that line?!
  11. There may be some here and there for the intrepid explorer, but the current soil temps, and generally fairly low humidity, would make me tend to believe we won't see them en masse until the sun returns. Check this post I made on pg 3 of this thread, about three-quarters of the page down, that has a few hints and tips mate: At the request of a fellow SABer I have bumped this thread and listed a couple of useful hints as far as wild finds go on the Sunny Coast. NOTE: This may or may not apply to any other parts of SE QLD. In my limited experience first flushes won't occur unless the following criteria are met: Base soil temps of 26C plus. 80% humidity or more (ideally 100%) combined with AT LEAST 50 - 100 mm of rain in a 24 hour period (the more the better) Regular decent rainfall following significant falls with humidity remaining 75% or more Grassy pastures that are super green HEAPS 'o COW POO If you find yourself in the right place at the right time, with the above conditions having occurred within the last few days, try to look for the following environments: grazing land with good sized herds of beef cattle (20+) gently sloping/rolling hills with heavily treed fence lines (camphors seem to be pretty good) areas where cattle regularly gather, either to wait for feeding or to be lead into another pasture. south facing slopes, or pastures that only get morning or afternoon sun reasonably long grass - tufty or not (recently heavily grazed pastures are usually stomped and the poo is too fresh) shady copses and/or streams rivers that run through/alongside said pastures Cyans tend to flush first, but can prove difficult to ID, despite the fact that some believe they bruise blue instantly - THEY DON'T NECESSARILY. Pinch a stem and check it again after 5 mins or so to check for inking. Alternatively leave them alone until they age a day (unless it is 40C in full sun, because they will be fried), in which case they take on a bluish tinge anyway. Black spore prints are easy to obtain by putting a cap gills down on paper overnight with a glass jar over it. Cubes flush later and have a MUCH longer run generally, although cyans can flush again, but half-heartedly in my experience. ID cubes by looking for the very quick on set of blue-green staining of broken stems, and the beautiful orange to golden yellow cap. Be wary though, I have spotted a couple of imposters which I really should've taken a pic of. Heavy dews will keep them popping up in the absence of rain. Deep purple spore print. If you must remove a sample do so with a sharp knife or scissors, as this increases the likelihood of repeat fruiting. Watch out for bulls and quad bike riding, banjo-playing, shotgun-wielding farmers. Lastly, on the topic of ID'ing, MAKE SURE YOU TAKE GOOD PHOTOS AND A SPORE PRINT TO OFFER UP ON THE FORUM FOR SOME SOLID IDs. Hope that helps mate, and please feel free to add/contradict/troll this post to further aid fellow fungal foragers.
  12. But really though
