    Surprise for man who unwittingly finds magic mushrooms in Yangmingshan (2014/05/12)

    A local man got more than he bargained for when he harvested mushrooms to cook with in Yangmingshan National Park and they turned out to be magic mushrooms. The surprise trip was reported to police, who vowed to step up patrols and investigate how these natural psychedelics ended up in the park.

    Today the Seventh Special Police Corps, which handles security in national parks, headed to Qingtiangang, Yangmingshan. An officer plucked mushrooms growing in cow dung in order to conduct lab testing.

    We’re collecting evidence to send to related agencies for tests. Before these tests and subsequent report are completed, our Seventh Special Police Corps will increase patrols in park areas.

    In the right conditions – such as the moist, cool environment of Yangmingshan – magic mushrooms can grow in cow dung if the cows ingested the mushroom spores. They cause a distorted view of reality that could prove hazardous in cases of a bad trip.

    These mushrooms have neurotoxins that can lead to the manifestation of neurological symptoms or hallucinations. They induce tears, perspiration and enlarge the pupils. Stronger, potentially hazardous reactions include full-body paralysis and cramps. If a person who consumed magic mushrooms develops these symptoms, he or she should receive emergency care.

    The psychedelic compound found in magic mushrooms, psilocybin, is a category 2 narcotic. Possession or sale is illegal.
