Sasquatch’s Trippy Treat

The Sasquatch! Festival at the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Wash., continues to be a major addition to the concert summer, but this year one tidbit in particular caught the media’s attention.

More than 13 pounds of chocolate laced with "psychedelic" mushrooms were confiscated at a camp site raid near the venue, and five entrepreneurs were arrested on drug-related charges May 25th.

In addition to the extra-hallucinatory chocolate, sheriffs deputies also seized about 1.2 pounds of marijuana, about 3.7 pounds of ’shrooms, more than 25 grams of hash oil and four grams of methamphetamine.

The sheriff’s office says an undercover detective bought drugs from the suspects. In the raid at the Gorge campground, about $9,000 and a Jeep Cherokee were also seized. Authorities estimated the street value of the drugs at $13,000.

Three Oregon men and one woman, and one man from Alaska, all ranging in age from 20 to 27 years, were arrested and booked into Grant County Jail on a variety of drug charges.

Sasquatch featured R.E.M., Ozomatli, The New Pornographers, M.I.A., The Flaming Lips and The Cure, among others.
