I have to say that among the things I worry about, people toting guns while in possession of psychedelic mushrooms just isn’t one of them. Don’t get me wrong, shrooms can mess up your mind and cause you to see imaginary enemies. Given a particularly bad trip, you might think that the Kenyan Usurper is sitting right there on your couch and fill the cushions with bullet holes. But the idea that someone might face 12 years in prison for mere possession of mushrooms and a firearm? That’s more than a little extreme.
If they want to charge him with something else, perhaps that would be more appropriate.
