    O'REILLY: Back in the segment tonight, "Watters World." As we told you earlier, state of Colorado becoming one of the most permissive places in the USA. Last week in Telluride a mushroom festival was held. This is the celebration of the positive aspects of both regular and hallucinogenic mushrooms. When Jesse Watters heard about the festival, he demanded to go.



    UNIDENTIFIED FEMALES: The mushroom festival.

    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Mycology, the study of mushrooms.

    WATTERS: What kind of things would you use mushrooms for?


    REBECCA FYTTE, MYCOLOGY ASSOCIATION: Mushrooms are what the Japanese call having the fifth taste, which is imami (ph).

    ANNOUNCER: Imami.

    UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Zooe-we-mama!

    FYTTE: This is really the fat of the land here ...

    WATTERS: That's like the Shaquille O'Neill of mushrooms.

    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Chocolician.

    WATTERS: You guys don't do magic mushrooms, do you?


    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Used to go out into the woods, and do it more as a spiritual quest.

    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The screen savers on the computers where it swirls.

    ANNOUNCER: I was watching the hill side news. Do not through the trees.

    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The dragons and all that, yeah.

    WATTERS: Do you ever worry that mushrooms might have a long-lasting impact?

    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The chemicals in the mushrooms resemble a lot of THE chemicals produced in the human brain already.

    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: How have you been?

    WATTERS: But you got everything under control?

    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I keep seeing things jumping all over the place.


    WATTERS: Does anything concern you at all?

    UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Besides my (inaudible)? No, nothing.

    WATTERS: What's the best thing about America?
