Colorado Police Rescue Hiker High on Mushrooms
Colorado has recently legalized marijuana, bringing a whole new meaning to “Rocky Mountain High,” but hallucinogenic mushrooms are still illegal. I wonder why? Maybe because it causes people to freak out during casual walks in nature.
According to The Smoking Gun
After receiving a 911 call that a female hiker was “high on mushrooms and in distress,” Boulder County Sheriff’s Office deputies and other assorted rescue personnel (35 in total) responded to Chautauqua Park.
She was located by a park ranger who discovered that the University of Colorado undergrad had “removed all of her clothing and was being restrained” by two male companions. Rescuers had to handcuff the unruly hiker, who struggled as she was placed in a rescue basket.
