Somehow, eating anything growing out of a pasture cow-pie does not sound like a good idea.

At least he was using a natural source for his "TRIP". Another reason to go green.

I wonder how much he tipped the cows for the mushrooms.
Wonder what the fine / sentence they will give the cows for supplying him with the shrooms.
Wonder if he rolled over on his suplliers.

For those of you who aren't aware, "Cow pattie" mushrooms have a hallucinogenic property. It's like taking LSD except you puke first. I sure wouldn't want that teen driving or even walking around with that in his system. Might see the car ahead as an elephant, the road ahead as a river, the pedestrian ahead as a cartoon character.

Changes in perception can't be considered hallucinations.

The only reason shrooms and LSD are compared is because they are both psychedelics.

So don't worry. He won't mistake anyone for a cartoon character...he'll just come out of it with a few good moments to remember when he's older.

So much for freedom...

They grow on top of the patty. The high is very manageable.

You can grow them in brown rice.

The bluefoot is found by creek banks where Japanese knot weed grows.

They're everywhere. There isn't just one kind of shroom you can get high from.(eating random mushrooms WILL kill you for the kids who are reading)

As for the woodstock comment. Hippies aren't the only people who enjoy getting high. It doesn't matter if it's associated with a different time, there are things to be gained from it in our time.

Your brain will accept and reject what it is supposed to accept and reject. I did not reject my chance to eat mushrooms, and I'm glad I got to experience it. You're not supposed to I guess. Just do what you do and feel good about it I guess.
