Veriix said:There is now a campaign to put a test case through the courts relating to magic mushrooms. It has been found that Clause 21 of the new drugs bill is illegal. These mushrooms are classified in eu law as an eu tradable vegtable. This came about as the result of a Dutch Government risk (CAM) asessment finding no risk to public health or social issues.
Basically the government have rushed it through and it has now been found to contravien EU law. Human rights law and a UN law
They are expecting to have clause 21 removed within 6 months
for stopping another part of our lives from
turning into a commodity.
Don't kid yourself, brother - the law will go through very soon and, no, there's nothing we can do about it at the moment. Even my friendly Tory MP (hah!) told me that we'd have to "agree to disagree" about psychedelics.mrfelix said:if this law goes through, and mushies become a class A, technically, due to the mass amounts of gardening e.t.c that's done on Hyde Park, the Queen is facilitating, deliberately, the growth of Mushrooms, as is laiable for arrest. (Obviously I know this wouldn't happen blah blah blah)
With regard to the Queen growing Class As - it's an interesting point you bring up. The whole point of the "fresh mushrooms" loophole was to prevent criminalising innocent people who accidently picked nice looking Liberty Caps or old grannies with a bunch of 'shrooms growing in the cowpats in their garden. Seems that just the selling of fresh shrooms and growkits (though not spores!) has been outlawed.yodhe said:The Home Office has categorically stated that it would not pursue prosecutions for accidental mushrooms growing on one's land, what it does say is that the "cultivation" of magic mushroom will be illegal.

Personally I would prefer to see a rationale debate on the entheogenic and cultural use of mushrooms, rather than what
seems "doomed to failure" tactics of the "money-men".... This bollocks about it violating European laws on commerce and
trade is going to get nowhere (though some kudos for trying), except to make some lawyers even richer.
