The Dutch government is banning the sale of all magic mushrooms after a series of high-profile incidents involving tourists who had taken them.

The decision will take effect within several months, said a spokesman for the Dutch justice ministry.


Calls for a re-evaluation of the drug grew after a 17-year-old French girl jumped from a building after eating magic mushrooms during a school trip to Amsterdam in March.

And yet marijuana is still legal.

Nice post, even though I dont live in the Netherlands (I'm guessing this applies mainly to Amsterdam). When (or if) the ban passes I dont think it will affect too many people. Shrooms are illegal in tons of other places, and yet people keep doin' them. The only difference is that where it's illegal people do it in thier homes. And from what I understand, drugs like that can only be done in "coffee shops" over in Amsterdam (please correct me if I'm wrong). I dont think the amount of shrooms being done will change, just the location in which they are being done.
