Uses and consumption
Consumption of this natural drug is not illegal, but many Orlendians choose to consume this mushroom in private company away from the judging eyes of The Originator's Order. Innapropriate behaviour and ridicule can be deemed as a symptom of Corruption of the Mind, which could cause intervention if behaviour is repeated in a disorderly fashion. The mushrooms have an unpleasant, bitter taste when consumed raw - so they are usually cooked first. Sometimes they are dried out and smoked with other more aromatic herbs to take the edge off of it. Laughing Jim's Stew is a recipe for a ridiculous party, and is often served in small cups from street vendors during festivals. Theatres have been known to include Laughing Jim in their refreshments and pre-show snacks so that the audience will roar with laughter at their pantomimes and comedy performances, making them more enjoyable for the crowds and more popular for the newspapers.
