Police find 2,300 jars of hallucinogenic mushroom spores


UGENE, Ore. - A Eugene man has been arrested after police found thousands of Mason jars containing enough spores to produce up to 15 pounds of hallucinogenic mushrooms.
Steven Closson has been charged with the unauthorized manufacturing of psilocybin mushrooms.
Because the growing operation was so large, authorities say the 25-year-old may not have been living in the home. That's where the roughly 23-hundred Mason jars were discovered.
Police say the spores would be able to produce a mushroom crop every 40 days or so.
Eugene Police Sergeant Jerry Webber says a pound of dried mushrooms can sell for up to 500-dollars.
Webber says the drug is pervasive in Oregon. Authorities in several southern states have recently intercepted packages of mushrooms coming from Eugene.

the biggest pc I have seen can hold 14 pint jars so to get 2,300 jars with 4 pressure cookers he would have to do 41 or so batches at at least an hour and a half each it would take a minimum of 61 hours not including heat up and cool down times

I smell something funny about that but if it is true that guy definitely put in some major time

unless they were all 1/2 pint jars,
cuts the time in half. so 30 hrs. Busy weekend but it could be done.

I'm sure the media screwed up the facts somewhere along the line.....they always do.

sorta like those busts where they say they found "millions of mushroom spores"....lol, I guess they counted them.

he probably had spores and colonized jars.

Either way, the guy is a friggin' moron. He had that many jars (I guess he never learned the concept of Bulk substrate) and was also shipping mushrooms in the mail.

Yet another prime example.....once you do this to make $$$, it is only a matter of time until you get nailed....and this guy is going to get it bad.

I think I may know someone who was on the receiving end of that operation, I heard about a huge bust in OR and he said the DEA called him for questioning. They can't get nothing on him now, though.
