Magic mushroom dispensary opens in Winnipeg’s Osborne Village –

An Ontario-based corporation has opened a magic mushroom dispensary in Winnipeg, as the under-the-table psychedelics market continues to grow across the country.

Magic Mush opened its doors along the main drag of Osborne Street with an eye-catching storefront spray-painted with colourful mushrooms.

The general manager, who wished to remain anonymous, says there are two other locations in Ottawa and Toronto, Ont.

The legal grounds for operation in this province, he says, are a bit hazy.

“It’s a grey area. It’s allowed to run in B.C. and Ontario, so we’re just coming to take a chance here and hopefully, we can take a stand and open it up here, as well,” he said.

Psilocybin is not legal in Canada. It is currently listed under Schedule III of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.

It can currently only be obtained legally through an exemption from the federal minister, as part of a clinical trial or through a special access program that allows physicians to request it for patients suffering from serious or life-threatening conditions.

Jamie Kagan, who is a lawyer and partner at Winnipeg’s Thompson Dorfman Sweatman LLP, is representing Magic Mush.
