On an all-new episode of VICELAND's HAMILTON'S PHARMACOPEIA, host Hamilton Morris climbs the Carpathian Mountains in search of a potent, psychotropic mushroom native to Eastern Europe: amanita muscaria. He meets up with a group of drifters still worshipping the fungus—one of the oldest known intoxicants on the planet—to see why so many people love the drug, and to uncover what makes it so powerful.


HAMILTON'S PHARMACOPEIA airs Tuesdays on VICELAND at 10 PM. Find out how to tune in here.
