Microdosing on magic mushrooms is one of those topics that tend to be misrepresented in the media since it involves basically no negative effects associated with the drug. Nevertheless, psilocybin is listed, alongside LSD and similar substances as a Schedule I drug according to the Controlled Substances Act. So, if you ask any legal expert, they will tell you that in most of the places where psilocybin is illegal, it’s “illegal all the way” – meaning that getting caught with even a small amount of the drug on your person could lead you to loss of employment and possible prosecution. It should be noted however that businesses, like Shaman Mushroom Spores, can legally offer psilocybin spores for sale for research only.
Despite the legal issues that are currently involved with microdosing, there are some pressures to at least consider a change in legal policy in certain areas. The argument is that microdosing is considered as a “harmless boost” that doesn’t actually create any negative effects, and may even enhance the person’s cognition and ability to think clearly, rather than impairing it.
Although this isn’t currently a very popular argument, and a lot of people still believe that psilocybin might be harmful even in the smallest doses, it’s still possible that things will change over time. In the meantime, make sure you read about the legality of magic mushrooms in your area before you use them in any way.
