Netherlands to ban magic mushrooms

"The Dutch government has decided to ban 'magic mushrooms' and announced that it would put a bill before parliament under a proposal put forward by the ministers of health and justice, Ab Klink and Hirsch Ballin.

"The ban on cultivation and use of the mushrooms means the closure of the 'smartshops' that sell them. Sale of dried mushrooms is already forbidden, but fresh ones are allowed.

"Use and possession of cannabis was de-penalized in 1976 in the Netherlands. It is sold in coffee shops under licence, in small doses."
