    "Japan is a country with arguably the strictest drug laws in the industrialized world, yet hallucinogenic mushrooms–classified as a Class A narcotic in the United States and many other nations–are openly available. In recent years, Japan has experienced a boom in the sale of so-called magic mushrooms, with head shops such as Freak Brothers springing up around Tokyo to cater to the demand. "They're very popular, especially with foreigners," says a young sales assistant. Told that such mushrooms are illegal in other countries, the sales assistant just smiles and refuses to comment."
