Cannabis Culture News LIVE: The Magic of Mushrooms

POT TV – Watch Cannabis Culture News LIVE for the latest news and views on pot politics and the marijuana community. In this episode: September is National Mushroom Month and we celebrate with a live broadcast from the new Magic Mushroom exhibit at Vancouver’s Herb Museum – while on magic mushrooms.

Cannabis Culture editors Jeremiah Vandermeer and Marius Stoner present a high-intesity episode featuring drug historian Chris Bennett and Herb Museum caretakers David Malmo-Levine and Rob Callaway. We’ll discuss the history of religious, spiritual and psychedelic mushroom-use and look at past and recent research into its active ingredient, psilocybin.
