While the country’s laws in regard to so-called “magic” mushrooms have swung back and forth frequently over the past few decades — ultimately resulting in a ban on possession as of 2008 — a legal loophole still allows for the sale, possession, and consumption of psilocybin mushroom “truffles:” the slightly less potent part of a mushroom that grows underground.…
