capsules of powder psilocybin mushrooms
CAPSULES CONTAINING POWDERED PSILOCYBIN MUSHROOMS IN COUNCIL GROVE, KANSAS The Kansas Bureau of Investigation Laboratory in Topeka recently received a submission of seven clear capsules containing a light brown powder (total net mass not reported) from the Council Grove Police Department (Council Grove is located about 50 miles southwest of Topeka). The capsules (see Photo 10) were seized (along with several ounces of marijuana) subsequent to a DUI/vehicle stop. The defendant indicated that the capsules were "mushroom pills". Analysis by TLC indicated psilocin and psilocybin, and analysis by GC/MS confirmed psilocin (quantitation not performed). This was the Laboratory's first encounter with this type of exhibit; however, a similar exhibit was seen by the KBI Great Bend Laboratory in 2002.
