What about the law and magic mushrooms/truffles?

In 1993, the sale of magic mushrooms in smart shops started. Following a number of incidents (in which magic mushroom use may have played a role) with foreign tourists in Amsterdam in 2006-2008, Minister Klink of VWS decided to ban the sale of magic mushrooms as of December 1, 2008. Since then, magic mushrooms have come under list 2 of the Opium Act, fresh or dried. This means that possession, import and export, cultivation and sale are prohibited.

All mushrooms with a hallucinogenic effect, both fresh and dried, are on list II of the Opium Act. The active ingredients of magic mushrooms, psilocin and psilocybin, are on list I of the Opium Act. List I includes substances with an unacceptable risk to health. Fresh truffles (Sclerotia) are not included. Grow kits that allow you to grow your own magic mushrooms are also legal.
