    I would really like to see a magic mushrooms legality overview. A table that lists the legal status per country of magic mushrooms, truffles, mycelium, and spores.

    We already have quite a bit of data available, including the legal status of magic mushrooms wiki, various news articles and discussions about bans and legality.

    Would anyone be up for compiling this data?
    There are two ways you can help:

    1. post information about bans and legality here.
    2. compile data in a table.
    For table code see instructions here or just quote the code below and edit it:
    Israel |||| Netherlands | Psilocybe Mushrooms, Amanita muscaria, Psilocin, Psilocybin, large scale cultivation | Psilocybe Truffles, Mycelium, Spores | Opium Act Schedule II (2009) & article 10a (2015)| Psilocybe truffles & myceliumkits are openly sold in stores Sweden |||| UK |||| USA Alabama ||||

    I've added what I can for English speaking countries. I need reference legislation links and confirmation of the accuracy of what's in the wiki for non-English speaking countries if anyone can provide that for their countries.

    I also have an issue with Louisiana, I found a number of references to Louisiana State Act 159 outlawing Amanita Muscaria, however I can't find the actual reference legislation, it seems to be missing from the Louisiana state government site, hence the issue of Amanita Muscaria is left blank for Louisiana.
