Magical Mystery Tour of Bali

Naked Man High on ‘Magic Mushrooms’ Rescued from Kuta Building Ledge

(1/13/2014) Denpost reports that on Sunday, January 5, 2014 a naked young man managed to make his way to the second floor of the office of the Kuta Lurah where he attracted a large crowd while indicating his desire to jump.

Both police and firefighters responded to the scene, trying to coax the man to safety and leave the window’s ledge via the stairs.

Wahyu Setyo of the Kuta Police Precinct said: “I suspect he was drunk with mushrooms. We couldn’t even get him to talk.”

Eventually Nyoman Resa of the Kuta Police managed to coax the naked man off the building’s ledge at 11:30 a.m., after he had spent two hours preparing to jump.

The non-communicative man was bundled off by police for observation at Bali’s Sanglah General Hospital.

Restaurants and coffee shop in many areas of Bali openly sell "Magic Mushrooms" that are propagated in cow manure. Also known as psilocybin mushrooms, the drug can deliver a mild or powerful psychedelic experience, depending on the dosage and the metabolism of the user.

While the active substance of psilocybin found in these mushrooms technically qualifies as a “class 1”addictive narcotic'  as defined  by the Indonesian Anti-Narcotics Agency, these mushrooms are openly sold in Bali.
