As the east coast recovers from the Hurricane Irene damage a few people have discovered that Irene also cause rapid and abundant growth of shrooms.  I’m not known to mess with magic mushrooms but I know many stoners who love them.

I know this sounds wild but stick with me on it. Scientists say that the rain creates the perfect climactic conditions for the shrooms to grow:

According to Dr. Casey Simon, an addiction expert based in Orange County, Calif., hurricanes create the perfect climactic conditions for the mushrooms to grow.

“Mushrooms are spores and they multiply in moisture and are spread by wind,” he told HuffPost Weird News.

Dr. Suneil Jain, a naturopathic physician in Scottsdale, Ariz., goes even further.

“The moisture, humidity, the wind and the temperature during hurricanes is the perfect climate for mushrooms,” he told HuffPost Weird News. “Also, both hurricanes and mushroom growth are associated with new or full moons, so there may be a lunar element as well.”

They also advice that you get the pretty quickly, while they are fresh and that they are only dangerous when they get too moldy.  Figures that something that is already poison

Mushrooms make people trip and hallucinate but despite that they are a reasonably safe drug. According to Dr. Suneil Jain, not only are they on the safer side but they may also have some medical benefits.


“These substances have been used for centuries, with just a handful of cases of addiction, or long-term problems. Generally, they are fairly benign.”


“There is evidence that it can help in treating OCD, body dismorphia issues and even marital problems,”

What do the greenies think of mushrooms? Are you going to be grabbing some of the fresh crop that is out now?
