    Illegal mushroom operation stopped

    A Napa couple was arrested after agents found they were growing psychedelic mushrooms in their home.

    The Napa Special Investigations Bureau obtained a search warrant for a residence on the 3200 block of Cuttings Wharf Road, after receiving information that the residents were growing and selling psilocybin mushrooms, agents said.

    Agents served the search warrant on Thursday at 4:50 p.m.
    They found Japheth Large, 37, and Jenny Dee Glenn, 39, at the residence. They had about a half pound of mushrooms for sale, worth about $500, agents said.

    Agents also recovered more than 60 plastic tubs where mushrooms were growing and $1,000 in cash of suspected drug proceeds, agents said.
    Large and Glenn were arrested and booked at the Napa County Department of Corrections.

    COMMENT: worth noting CA is one of the few US states where even the spores of psilocybin mushrroms are illegal.

    Wow... Arrested for mushrooms? That doesn't happen very often at all. Oh, and where's the proof they were selling or planning to eat these mushrooms? I'm not 100% sure, but I think these two might be found not guilty.

    ^^ In CA, as in almost every US state, growing/possesing psilocybe mushrooms is illegal. While the story is poor it sounds like they probably had a 1/2 pound bagged for sale in smaller quantities. Considering even pocession of the spores is illegal in CA I highly doubt t hey will be found innocent...

    :/ I suppose. After doing more research, it turns out it's just Florida that you can actually have shrooms growing in your home. I love my home state...

    But FL is NOT weed friendly :(.

    As someone who has been to court and charged with trafficking but found not guilty because evidence was just assumptions made by a bunch of ignorant non-druggies, Cowboy can say that this couple should not be found guilty of intent to supply anyone other than themselves. Should get Prop 36 for this in CA.
