The police showed up at the house with a tip there was drugs in the house. They found a plastic tub with mushroom beds (dirt) in it...i was charged with poss. controlled substance 2nd degree, hallucinogen and paraphernalia. i did not have any mushrooms it was just a tub and 4 jars of dirt. but i did admit to the intention of trying to cultivate mushrooms...I was respectful and honest to the police and the arresting officer said he would back me up at court. I plan on pleading guilty to paraphernalia and not guilty to possession of a controlled substance since i didnt have anything to intoxicate or alter the body, like i said just a plastic tub and jars of dirt. Under my circumstances I was wondering if i'm likely to serve jail time.
