Carlos Plazola locked himself in a bedroom while his cousin stood guard.

For five hours, he tripped on magic mushrooms, nibbling the fungi and sipping them in tea. He ingested 5 grams, often called the "heroic dose".

It was Plazola’s first time using the mushrooms, which contain the naturally occurring hallucinogen psilocybin. He started having epiphanies, one right after the other, like lightning bolts.

“I was making connections that I had never made in terms of my understanding of what we are, what the cosmos are, why we’re here, where we’re going,” Plazola said.

That mushroom trip last October by Plazola, the well-connected onetime chief of staff of a former Oakland City Council president, helped make Oakland the first city in California and the second in the nation to effectively decriminalize magic mushrooms.

I tried what was called psilocybin, but it wasn't in natural mushroom form. It could have been something else. I also took a moderate (not "heroic") dose. It was pleasant.

Pleasant how? Can you elaborate?

Heightened awareness, bright colors, but not overwhelming. You should drive to Oakland and buy an ounce of mushrooms.

It's illegal in my country, so I could not order it online.

You could, of course. You can even order just the spores and grow mushrooms at home.

Really? I will check it out. It appears that it is legal to order spores, but not to grow the mushrooms. Also with online shopping I would need to produce a medical license or prescription at checkout. So, no go there.
