The psychedelic drug world has seen its share of high-profile raids and arrests in recent years. But subtle policy shifts have fueled optimism among some in the community that legalization of hallucinogens like psilocybin, aka magic mushrooms, is on the horizon.

Despite their illegal status, Montreal’s mushroom shops are flourishing. Shops with names like Fun Guyz and Shroom City open their doors and beckon passersby inside, where paintings of colorful fungi hang on the walls and employees distribute discount fliers at intersections. Go here

Owners of shops that sell illegal hallucinogens, such as magic mushrooms, have a long tradition of defying police and mounting legal challenges to archaic drug laws. Police have raided dozens of shops in cities across the country, seizing stock and arresting workers, but the stores keep opening, and their owners say they’re engaging in civil disobedience to push for legalization.

In Canada, possession of small amounts of magic mushrooms is illegal, but the federal government has decriminalized a number of other drugs. Those who want to use the drugs for therapeutic purposes can apply for an exemption with Health Canada, but that process is slow and opaque. And the exemptions only allow users to buy small amounts of mushrooms, not grow them.

That’s why some people are going to extreme lengths to avoid detection and stay safe. Some are even paying for luxury trips that come with private accommodations, meals and a team of experts to help them through their experiences.
