SHERBROOKE, Que. — A stoned, naked man wandering a city street touched off a series of events that led officers to a magic mushroom grow operation, police say.

Citizens in this town two hours east of Montreal called 911 to report a man walking around in his birthday suit early Monday morning.

Officers stopped the man and escorted him to his home where they found magic mushrooms growing inside, police said.

Police spokesman Rene Dubreuil said the man was likely high on his own supply.

"The man was naked and he told us he was floating above the city," Dubreuil said.

Officers seized drugs and growing equipment, he said.

A source said two Mason jars full of spores can produce about 454 grams of toxic mushrooms. One gram has a street value of $10.
