Officials from the traditional village of Kuta in Bali raided a “magic” mushroom production shed on Sunday, November 9, 2014.

As reported by Beritabali.com, the warehouse forming the subject of the raid covered 300 square meters and was dedicated exclusively to cultivating Psilocybin mushrooms. Three temporary residents of Bali from Banyuwangi, East Java had recently rented the structure.

The raid reportedly had its roots in a recent survey of the area in which village officials quizzed local residents to ensure they have the permits needed to take up residence in Bali. Official’s suspicions were piqued when the three men running the warehouse had no local stay permits.

Dewa Made Oka, the village head (Kelian) of Banjar Jabe Jero Kuta, told the press: “The mushrooms or fungi grown in cow manure were ready to harvest. The warehouse covered 3 are (100 square meters), All space was dedicated to mushroom production.”

The three men have reportedly been in the business of producing and selling “magic” mushrooms in Kuta for more than two years. The warehouse raided by local official, however, has only been in operation for three months.

A member of the local uniformed civilian security force (Hansip), Made Suardana, said that the traditional village of Kuta rejects the production and sale of Psilocybin mushrooms - plants under Indonesian law thatare considered an illicit narcotic.

Suardana added: “Tourists who consume these mushroom lose control and can appear naked in public. It has happened that tourists will climb up on roofs and refuse our requests to come down, throwing roofing tiles at us for trying to save their lives. The negative effects of “'magic mushrooms'are very great if the authorities continue to ignore their open use and sale in Kuta.”

The three men operating the warehouse are now in the custody of the Kuta Police Precinct awaiting further legal disposition.
