Until the law was changed, in July 2005, it was perfectly legal to buy and sell magic mushrooms in England. Overnight this naturally occuring hallucinogen had gone from a recreational drug like alcohol to a mushroom the possession of which could get you arrested. This fascinating book takes us on a magical mystery tour from the use of magic mushrooms in indigenous ceremonies to more modern abuses. From the science behind the main active ingredient psilocybe to well documented historical intoxication. If you want to know about the history of magic mushrooms then this is the book to read.
