    O'REILLY: All right, we are buying it. We're believing you. This mushroom stuff, that's illegal to take hallucinogenics, right?

    WATTERS: (inaudible) illegal, but there are therapeutic uses, they say.

    O'REILLY: Who's they?

    WATTERS: Some of the experts there and the scientists say if you take it, it can have a healing effect on the psyche, it can reduce stress. It can produce a harmonious atmosphere in your brain.

    O'REILLY: Colorado has legalized pretty much everything. You look very good here, Watters, that's very good for your resume.

    WATTERS: When in Rome, Bill. Come on, man.

    O'REILLY: Sure. You and Father Morris.

    So it's illegal, though, to take hallucinogenic mushrooms. Still in Colorado, they're legalizing everything these days.

    WATTERS: It is still illegal, and this was a legitimate festival.

    O'REILLY: Were there any Telluride police making sure that people didn't?

    WATTERS: I didn't see any police officer the entire time.

    O'REILLY: Not one?

    WATTERS: Thank God, and I was not really looking for them.

    O'REILLY: But there were people taking these hallucinogenics.

    WATTERS: The guy who was kneeling down who said he doesn't worry about anything except his ex-wives, that guy had just eaten an eighth of mushrooms.


    O'REILLY: Did somebody try to give you that stuff?

    WATTERS: They tried and I refused.

    O'REILLY: Are you sure? Because we saw you dancing.

    WATTERS: That was the altitude, OK? That was altitude.

    O'REILLY: All right. So bottom line on this, this happens every year in Telluride?

    WATTERS: Every year.

    O'REILLY: These people go there. They take these -- it's not like a cream of mushroom soup, is it?

    WATTERS: No, there's some culinary artists there.

    O'REILLY: That's the cover. That's the cover.

    WATTERS: You think so?

    O'REILLY: Yes, I do think so.


    WATTERS: There's a lot of scientific purposes there. (inaudible) they fight oil spills with these shrooms, Bill. You got to look around.

    O'REILLY: All right, Jesse Watters, everybody. He's buying everything they're giving.
