Magic mushrooms are illegal in most parts of the world (at least for now).
However, the spores of these mushrooms are often excluded from these laws entirely.
This is because the banned substance isn’t the mushrooms themselves but the active ingredients, psilocybin and psilocin. Magic mushrooms are considered a “container” for these psychedelic substances, which makes them illegal by proxy.
You can order magic mushroom spores legally in many countries, including Canada, the United States (with the exception of 2 states), the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.
However, once you germinate the spores, the mycelium and mushrooms they produce are illegal.
