Yesterday, we reported about an odd package that showed up at the Glenwood Springs Post Independent: a box of psilocybin mushrooms. The topic was naturally humorous, but some readers got into a serious debate about whether shrooms should be legal. Here's the take of one person who thinks the status quo might be better than the alternative.
Mushrooms should be legal, but after the whole "regulate marijuana like alcohol" scam, I'd rather keep them illegal than over taxed and over regulated. But totally decriminalized would be nice.
