Psychedelic Mushroom Laws in Pennsylvania
Psychedelic mushrooms are illegal to sell, trade, or use throughout the United States. While they could be growing in your own backyard, if you are caught actively cultivating mushrooms for drug use, you could face charges for manufacturing and selling drugs—not just possessing them.
This is a slippery slope, and a conviction can lead to significant time in prison. All illegal drugs are listed under the Controlled Substances Act and are classified based on how toxic they are. Mushrooms are psychedelics and are considered a Schedule 1 drug. This is a type of drug that has a higher likelihood of being abused.
You should be warned that while you can buy mushroom grow kits on the Internet, actually using them to grow psychedelic mushrooms could result in criminal charges. It is illegal to grow psychedelic mushrooms from spores even in the privacy of your own home. Technically the spores bought online are legal because they have not yet produced the substance that is considered to be a Schedule 1 drug. However, if you do grow them you’ll be facing criminal charges including the manufacture of a controlled substance.

Protect Your Rights

Reduce Your Charges
It is sometimes possible to have the charges against you reduced or dropped if you agree to drug counseling or rehabilitation services. This can be in your best interest, especially if this is your first offense.
