Late at night on March 14, Marietta Police entered Conner Meadows’ apartment at a complex on Williams Drive, off Bells Ferry Road north of Interstate 75.
According to the warrant, the officers found 25 grams, or 0.88 ounces, of suspected marijuana, with more than half the quantity inside a safe in a bedroom closet.
Police say they also found a large stack of small plastic baggies and a digital scale inside the safe.
Marietta Police also say Meadows was manufacturing mushrooms containing psilocybin, which can cause mind-altering effects such as hallucinations, a distorted sense of time, nausea and possible panic attacks.
According to the warrant, Marietta Police found 60 Mason jars containing brown flour mixed with vermiculite, a type of insulation, in a pressure canner.
“This is the most common mixture for growing ‘magic mushrooms,’ containing psilocybin,” the warrant said.
According to the warrant, there were also seven syringes containing liquid, five that were labeled “PC Thailand Koh Samui SS#3” and two labeled “PC Ecuador #66.”
“These are the illegal spores that are used to inject the mason jars … in a process called inoculation,” the warrant stated.
Meadows arrested March 25 at a home on Shillings Road, just outside of Kennesaw south of Smith-Gilbert Gardens.
Meadows faces a misdemeanor charge of conspiracy to violate the Georgia controlled substance act and a felony charge of purchase, possession, manufacture and distribution or sale of marijuana.
Meadows was granted a $7,500 bond and released the next day.
