2288 Grams is a Lot of Shrooms

Our country is no doubt a little bit safer after police confiscate 2288 grams of psilocybe mushrooms that some master drug smuggler attempted to mail cross-country via USPS. I could understand a few pills; maybe some pot, but 2288 grams of shrooms? Seems ambitious at best, really stupid at worst. Either way it failed.

The bigger War on Drugs-is-a-Big-Failure point still remains though -- we are looking at mushrooms, not a pile of dead Russian hookers that police discovered in a shipping container -- but fucking mushrooms. We spend billions of dollars a year in enforcement so that police can proudly take a picture of a huge pile of mushrooms. Pretty silly if you ask me.
