How Long Do Shrooms Stay In Your System?
The human body breaks down magic mushrooms relatively quickly. Trips subside in about six hours, but the metabolites can stay in your system for up to 24 hours. However, they’re unlikely to show up on a drug test.

- The amount of mushrooms consumed

Are Magic Mushrooms Legal?
For the most part, psilocybin mushrooms are illegal. But some countries have made mushrooms almost completely legal, while others are taking steps towards legalization. It is essential to be aware of the laws and regulations in your county, state, or country when consuming or growing mushrooms.
Two states, Colorado and Oregon, have made shrooms legal in the United States for specific medical usage. Also, around 13 counties in the U.S. have decriminalized them.
