Astrologer's fight to legalise 'magic' mushrooms

An astrologer in South Africa is fighting to get "magic" mushrooms legalised for use in spiritual ceremonies.

Psilocybin mushrooms, also known as “magic” mushrooms, are banned in many countries around the world due to their hallucinogenic qualities.

But one 72-year-old-woman in South Africa is fighting through the courts to legalise their use for spiritual ceremonies.

Monica Cromhout faces a possible jail sentence for dealing in illegal substances.
