Inside America's Only Magic Mushroom Church
Within the Church of Entheogenic Plants, a dozen varieties of psilocybin (aka "magic") mushrooms await those who wish to incorporate use of psychedelic fungus into their religious and spiritual practices. Two years ago, the church was raided by local police, but they re-opened the next day and still plan to sue in federal court to affirm their religious liberty. So take a trip (yes, pun intended) with Abdullah and Bean to this incredible oasis in Oakland, California to see for yourself, while also learning about the long history of mushrooms and other psychedelics for spiritual and ceremonial use. The Church of Entheogenic Plants is also known as ZIDE DOOR. The organization Decriminalize Nature has been at the forefront of successful efforts to decriminalize magic mushrooms and other psychedelics. Double Blind magazine has information and resources about psychedelic culture, cultivation and best practices. MAPS is a leading organization advocating for legal access to psychedelics for medicinal use. PATREON Please support Great Moments in Weed HIstory on Patreon.
