the shroom house shop in Portland that sells psychedelic mushrooms despite being totally illegal — has been around since late 2021 or early 2022, and its staff isn’t exactly hiding its existence from customers. Willamette Week and the Oregonian have both reported on the West Burnside supplement store, which has a line of people out the door despite not advertising any psilocybin sales on its website.
Those in line to buy the fungus say they know that the mushroom shop isn’t legal, but they want to try it anyway for health reasons and to improve their mental wellness. “The mushroom is a plant that can heal you and I believe it has the power to help people with their depression and anxiety,” says customer James King, a 62-year-old Portland resident.

Portland police raided the shop in December and seized 22 pounds of psilocybin along with $13,000 in cash, reports KPTV. Four people were arrested, including owner Steven Tachie, 32, and store manager Jeramiahs Geronimo, 42, who are facing up to 40 felony counts for illegally selling the hallucinogenic drug in Oregon.
Mushroom houses have a distinct architectural style and national cultural characteristics. This study focused on the mushroom houses in four traditional villages of the Hani Rice Terraces, a World Heritage Site. They were mapped and classified according to their forms. A basic prototype of the building structure was extracted for structural modeling. The structural behavior of the Hani mushroom houses under different load conditions was also analyzed.
