Illegal under 2020 New Hampshire Revised Statutes, Title 318-B:1-aPossession may carry a penalty of up to seven years in prison and a $25,000 fine
Even though eating hallucinogenic mushrooms is illegal, the New Hampshire Supreme Court ruled that consuming them as part of a religious ritual does not automatically “disturb the public peace,” and thus the act can be covered under the state constitution. New Hampshire’s Constitution explicitly protects actual religious practices so long as they don’t “disturb the peace.”
IMPORTANT: Consumption of psilocybin mushrooms is not automatically a legal religious practice, despite the unanimous decision.
