In this episode of the podcast, Joe interviews Kole, who was famously arrested for growing and possessing mushrooms in Denver back in 2020 – shortly after psilocybin had been decriminalized there. Kole discusses why he decided to start growing mushrooms; how he became involved in the decriminalization movement; why he brought several journalists to personally see his grow; and how, even though those journalists may not have had bad intentions, that blind trust led to his downfall. And he describes how the arrest played out, the details of his grow, his charges, how the plea bargain came about, and why he was likely let go with probation instead of the possible 6-10 year sentence he had heard warnings of. This episode is an important reminder to be extremely careful in your actions and in who you trust.
