The NYPD has spent $13,368 on psilocybin, the compound in shrooms that makes you think spiders are crawling all over you, according to a new report from DNAinfo. An analysis of the NYPD’s spending records reveals they’ve also shelled out significant cash for MDMA, steak dinners, and Jet Skis. The drugs, of course, are used as comparison samples in the lab, and are definitely not used for recreational purposes.
