“When the door was opened and the trooper began to speak to the driver, he smelled the strong odor of marijuana,” the news release said. A search of the bus produced 1½ pounds of marijuana and 0.2 pounds of narcotic mushrooms, according to state police.
Willie Nelson and pot? Gee there's a surprise. Narcotic mushrooms? Now that's news to me, and to anyone else familiar with either the medical or legal terminology. Medically, narcotics refer only to opium, opium derivatives (like morphine and heroin) and their synthetically created chemical cousins. Legally, "narcotics" means those drugs plus cocaine and coca derivatives. Are we looking at psilocybin mushrooms which are a schedule 1 controlled substance? That's possible, but unless some botanist has been very busy, and with the opium poppy being a flower and mushrooms being a fungus maybe doing some groundbreaking genetics, there ain't no such thing as a "narcotic mushroom."
