Scutari is the Mushroom Man Presented by UberGood Thursday morning!
State Sen. Nick Scutari confirmed to our Sam Sutton that he put the amendment into the weed decriminalization bill to downgrade possession of psychedelic shrooms to a disorderly persons offense.
Some people believe this is a poison pill — or poison mushroom — meant to derail the legislation.
And the mushroom amendment did reportedly cause the bill to stall in the Assembly.
But here’s what I don’t get about that theory: The bill, with the mushroom amendment in it, passed the Senate 29-4.
