(7/4/2016)

Police from the Denpasar Precinct Narcotics Division have raided two locations selling “magic mushrooms’ on Jalan Kuta Theatre in Kuta and placed under arrest two men and confiscated 6.6 kilograms of psilocybin mushrooms.

As reported by NusaBali, the arrests took place on Thursday, June 23, 2016, in raids conducted at 11:30 pm.

Police conducted the raids after receiving reports from surveillance teams who were acting on complaints of open selling of magic mushrooms from area residents.

Police say the men taken into custody were selling magic mushrooms to tourists in Kuta from two locations.

Police found two Tupperware boxes at one locale containing 54 small plastic bags holding 2.1 kilograms of mushrooms and an electric blender used for preparing “magic mushroom juice.” The second location was only a few meters down the same road where they found three Tupperware boxes containing 102 small plastic bags with 4.5 kilograms of psilocybin mushrooms.

While magic mushrooms were once opening sold in Kuta, but have been banned with the possession, production or sale the fungi becoming a felony on January 1, 2015.

The two men arrested by police will be charged on Indonesia’s anti-narcotics law of 2009 and subject to imprisonment for a minimum of 1 year and a maximum of 5 years.

The men told police they have been selling the mushrooms in Kuta since 2013. They purchase the mushrooms for Rp. 200,000 per kilogram and can net a profit of up to Rp. 1 million each day selling “magic mushroom juice.”
