Cops Arrive after Maryland Man Posts Photos of Non-Psychedelic Mushrooms on FB
A Maryland man posted to Facebook describing how a cop arrived at his home over the other post he made on Facebook.
The cop's agenda?
He was apparently there to conduct an investigation into the man and his girlfriend, Hope Deery, for possessing psychedelic psilocybin mushrooms.
The only problem: they weren't magic mushrooms.
"We let them in and as soon as the police officer walked in he asked us why we were eating mushrooms and posting about it online," the man posted.
But the mushrooms in the photos they posted were actually edible mushrooms the couple found earlier in the day, cooked and ate before the cop arrived, knocking on their door.
John Garrison of Darlington, Maryland said he tried to explain to the cop Morel mushrooms are a "native choice edible mushroom similar to truffles."
"He wasn't convinced," Garrison recalled in his post on Facebook describing the incident.
"So I rummaged through the trash to find a piece of a Morel so that he would have evidence that we weren't taking psychedelic mushrooms," he wrote.
"I showed him and he still wasn't convinced that they weren't magic mushrooms."
Garrison wrote he was shocked the officer was there over the photos he took because the edible moral mushrooms don't resemble the psychedelic type people eat for their mind-altering effects.
"I figured a police officer would know what illegal drugs look like."
Eventually, a second cop showed up and Garrison showed her the Morels he'd dug from the trash and she immediately identified it as a Morel.
Garrison, along with his girlfriend, were relieved to be finally off the hook.
The cops proceeded to 'process their IDs' then left.
Thankfully, no one was injured during the misunderstanding.
