Kava Kava & Amanita
I was wondering
if you could tell me the legal status of a couple of
hallucinogenic I've been trying to chase up. They are
Kava and Amanitas. I know they are legal in the US and
some places in Europe but are they legal to possess/buy
in the UK. I know that Amanitas is a type of mushroom
but the rules concerning mushrooms seem a bit ambiguous.
Any info would be a great help.
As far as
I know, Kava Kava is not illegal, and neither are Amanitas,
but I would need to do more research to confirm that
none of the constituents is a controlled drug.
either in a raw plant form (even if dried, provided
not deliberately) would be legal in the same principles
which apply to magic mushrooms, i.e. if they are prepared
in any way, and contain a controlled drug, they would
within the Amanita family of mushrooms (which include
Fly Agaric, and the fatally poisonous Death Cap or Destroying
Angel) are very dangerous, and can be used by animal
experimenters as a 'tool' specifically to kill brain
cells (excitotoxicity). I would strongly advise against
using any of these fungi.
