Alright folks.... I need your help here, please tell me I am not crazy... In this news article, they show photos of the raw LSD that was confiscated in a bust... I am pretty sure these are spawn jars, though some of them look a little off with the amount of metabolites present while still being awfully white...

 

Raw LSD does not look like this, though, I guess I have no experience in what a lb of raw LSD might look like prior to being prepped for Grrs... I think they tested it, found that it was a hallucinogen, and decided it was LSD...

 

Let me know what you guys think!

As I finished the article, I guess the substance in the bag could potentially be a low quality LSD but it looks a lot more like vermiculite to me.... I think this is likely a prime example of police officers having ABSOLUTELY no clue what they are really looking for... This bodes well for the people committing drug crimes but is kind of sad that a police force is not better trained....

 

Lol, Perhaps they need an expert! What do you think they would pay?  :ph34r: :tongue: :tinfoil:

 

jokes, jokes....

Looks to me like a bunch of spawn jars that were forgotten about under the bed back in 2016... along with a gallon ziplok bag of medium vermiculite.
Fake News !! Lol

This article would be fitting if it was from "The Onion"

 

My question is if the suspect was a meth head that forgot where he stashed his grow supplies and spawn or is it just your typical crackhead in the wrong place at the wrong time?

Good point but where does the vermiculite fit in?

 

That's a lot of ergot.

I guess you'd need a lot of raw ergot infected grain to extract the ergotamine to use as a precursor for LSD synthesis. Although, I'm not aware that that would be an effective or economical way to go about synthesising LSD ...

Back in the 90's a Dentist on a camping trip was charged with possession of LSD when a Ranger found his jar of

. OVALTINE Chocolate Malt Flavored Milk Mix.

Fake news. LSD is a clear liquid and highly concentrated after production. Cops and media love to blow things up for ratings and profit.

Looking at the pic of the guy that got busted....   HE may have believed that he was making LSD, but I don't.

 

No lab, or equipment, and no solvents and other chemicals means no LSD was being manufactured.  Ergot can kill you if not handled properly, and there are some other really nasty chemical that are used in the manufacture of LSD.  Those kind of things are way to photogenic to overlook.  If they had a lab with equipment, and chemicals, then they would have showed that instead of what looks like a  bag vermiculite.

I wonder if someone was trying to produce ergot using their previous experience from mushroom growing. I'm sure the information on propagating ergot for producing LSD is fleeting and bleak. I know I read a guide once, and you're basically told to grow fields of rye and collect the infected grain.(which can be in very low numbers) This could have been an attempt to stream line production of the main ingredient. Honestly so hard to say what was going on here. Maybe this guy was just bad at growing mushrooms? Or so good at it that the DEA felt its quality of effect was on par with LSD. The media never knows what they're actually reporting on anyways :rolleyes: , which makes this a lot foggier.
