comment Are psilocybin mushrooms permitted/prohibited/advocated in Jewish law or tradition?
Why is it that some Jewish law is created for the sake of being, and is punished upon if you make the wrong choice? This is for the purpose of morals. And on the side of that, God placed these natural elements in his soil and did not even clearly define their negative use. Positive use was found. Topics like this allow me to really question my faith. Aside from my faith, I believe that we, as G-d's creations should not be restricted from natural elements. We should fully make use of all that is provided for us, and complete our lives the positive way we wish, to accomplishment.

What if at the instance of the crime, the individual is to consume the substance in a land which permits the consumption. As I see it, it seems as it's not covered by Jewish law. I also don't believe it falls under the category of health harms. You could harm yourself with anything, so this shouldn't be different. In generalization, if a Jew safely consumes the substance, what would be his results? For what else may the individual be punished for?

Legality shouldn't interfere. The law does not work along with Jewish law. Correct? It is know that if correctly consumed, magic mushrooms are safe and natural hallucinogens. Health risks shouldn't be a problem if consumed correctly.
