MAGIC MUSHROOMS TO BE EXPORTED?

Labour MP Paul Flynn has called for Welsh youngsters to be given grants to export magic mushrooms. Mushrooms from his Welsh constituency - Newport West - can command a price of =A32,000 per kilo in Amsterdam where connoisseurs consider them to be some of the most powerful in the world.

Magic mushrooms - which the MP called 'the truffles of Wales' - may be legally consumed in the UK provided they are not 'prepared' for example in tea or cakes when they would be classified along with heroin as a class A= drug.

Mr Flynn in an interview for the programme Y Byd Ar Bedwar said that, 'It is perfectly legal to send them fresh from Wales; nobody is poisoned by them, nobody is addicted. Why on earth not exploit the market and get the Welsh Development Agency to give a grant for a few young people to set up a= business?'

Nigel Evans, Tory MP for Ribble Valley, and a frequent critic of drug liberalisation, criticised the Labout MP for, 'encouraging people to take drugs and sell them'. Mr Evans owns a shop in Swansea which sells tobacco.

Mr Flynn responded, 'Magic mushrooms are among the least harmful (drugs). No one has ever died after using them but 100,000 die every year as a result of tobacco use.'

A spokesman for Tony Blair - the UK Labour Party leader - said that Mr Flynn's views were not shared by the Labour Party.
