USA Legal Status:

Neither collecting the mushroom nor consuming it is illegal in the USA. All homeopathic preparations (including the mother tincture) may be sold only by pharmacists but do not require a physicians prescription.

Louisiana made Amanita muscaria illegal in August of 2005 if intended for human consumption. If one buys, possess, plants, cultivates, grows or harvests the Amanita muscaria, when used "strictly for aesthetic, landscaping, or decorative purposes". This Act # 159 made 40 plants illegal including Salvia Divinorum.

Tennessee proposed a similar law, which would have banned Fly Agarics, but it was passed only for Salvia Divinorum.

Luckily to date the legal status of Fly Agaric (Amanita muscaria) seems intact. Lets act responsibly and keep it this way.
