[rte.ie] Sale and use of magic mushrooms banned. (31 Jan 2006)

The Tánaiste and Minister for Health, Mary Harney, has decided to ban the sale and possession of magic mushrooms. Up until this afternoon it had been legal to sell the psycho-active mushrooms as long as they had not been dried or processed.

The ban is to be effective immediately and it is understood that shops across Ireland, which had been selling the mushrooms, have now begun removing them from their shelves.
