The police carried out searches.
Last Thursday, a third store, Shroom Godz, opened across the street from Mushroom Cabinet. According to the police, the owner of this store agreed to close its doors after being informed of the arrests in the two other establishments.
During the Last year, magic mushroom shops opened their doors in several towns in the province. According to expert Akwasi Owusu-Bempah, these are acts of civil disobedience.
Mr. Owusu-Bempah, a sociologist working on psilocybin research with the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) Canada, says opening these establishments forces cities to choose between enforcing laws against drugs or tolerating them. He points out that before cannabis was legalized in 2018, illegal stores sold marijuana.
However, Andrew Hathaway, a professor at x27;University of Guelph specializing in illicit drug use, harm reduction, human rights and Canadian drug policy, believes legalization of magic mushrooms is still a long way off.< /p>
I haven't heard of decriminalization of mushrooms, as is the case for cannabis, a- he told CBC in August.
