Are magic mushrooms legal in Ireland?

So you want to know, are magic mushrooms legal in Ireland? The short answer to your question is, no, magic mushrooms are not legal in Ireland. Sorry to disappoint you. You might be interested to know, however, that magic mushroom spores are legal in Ireland. Read on for more information.

Up until 31 January 2006, you could legally buy magic mushrooms in Ireland. The law was changed because an Irish citizen jumped from a building to their death while under the influence of magic mushrooms. The Misuse of drugs act 1977 regarding controlled drugs was updated with the following:

It is hereby declared that any substance, product or preparation (whether natural or not), including a fungus of any kind or description, which contains Psilocin or an ester of Psilocin is a controlled drug for the purposes of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1977 .

Basically, what this is saying is that anything which contains psilocin is illegal. Psilocin is the psychedelic substance in magic mushrooms that gives users the psychedelic experience that magic mushrooms are known for.

Now, back to what we were saying about magic mushroom spores. Magic mushroom spores do not contain psilocin and are therefore legal in Ireland. If you’re wondering what magic mushroom spores are, we can tell you that they are essentially microscopic mushroom seeds.

What does this mean for you?

Well, it means you can legally buy and possess magic mushroom spores in Ireland. It does not mean that it is legal to grow them. Once magic mushroom spores are germinated, they contain psilocin and as we now know, psilocin is illegal in Ireland.
