Trio Of Hurricanes Plants Bumper Crop Of Magic Mushrooms

From the Dept. of Collateral Effects:

'SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (Wireless Flash) -- Recent hurricanes like Charley, Ivan, Frances and Jeanne have been bad for homeowners but they could be a real trip for hippies.

According to ethnobotanist Clark Heinrich, psychedelic -- or "magic" -- mushrooms commonly crop up when areas receive more rain than usual.

Heinrich says the `shroom boom is most likely to be in areas with a lot of landscaping bark -- and that includes the grounds near government buildings and industrial parks. In fact, he predicts thousands of psilocybin mushrooms are popping up near police stations but says the authorities have no clue.' (NC Buy article via Fark)
