Magic Mushrooms Legality Status

Hi,

Are magic mushrooms and other psychedelic drugs legal in Thailand and other Asian countries? I've done some research about it, mostly in European countries magic mushrooms are banned, while magic truffles are not.. wondering why?? because they just have the same effects...

Here's a little guide to some of the places that they were popular at.

https://www.jonesaroundtheworld.com/...ooms-thailand/

Back in the late 80's when I first travelled here, the beach resorts in the south were thriving with Mushroom omelettes soup and tea. as was numerous other drugs and openly sold in the cafes/restaurants.

here are the names of some of the species you can find here.

P. cyanescens
P. semilanceata
P. pelliculosa
P. stuntzii
G. luteofolius
Pan. cinctulus

Most probably, wouldn't even try to buy them in Asia now, too many traps being set up to catch people.

Anywhere you have backpackers you will find magic mushrooms getting openly sold. Usually in the forms of shakes to drink or on pizzas. Im not sure if they are illegal but nobody seems to bother if they are not

In places like Ko Phangan they are on the menu in restaurants. The cops want to bust anyone with opium, hash, pills and powder. They dont care about mushrooms.

Magic mushrooms, weed, kratong, prostitution and other intoxicants are strictly illegal in the Kingdom of Thailand. Alcohol is grudgingly permitted, but if you post a picture of yourself on Youtube displaying alcoholic imbibements, you may be subjected to legal action and a jail sentence (TRUE!).

However, in the Full moon parties in the Gulf of Thailand, such rules may be relaxed in return for a voluntary contribution to the Police officers benevolence and welfare fund. And boy, don't they earn it.

I never saw the interest in Magic mushrooms. I tried it once in my life in Canada and had the worst trip ever. I thought my teeth were falling out.. and I said never again will I try it. Drugs are a serious offence not just in Thailand, but China and Korea among other Asian countries.
I posted a thread in the pub about the legalization of marijuana upcoming in Canada next year. It is something how most of Asia is so against drugs, but certain states in the US and all of Canada are thinking of legalizing it.
Mushrooms is considered a hard drug though, that may be the difference.
