N.C. State student from Salisbury faces drug charges

RALEIGH — According to a report in the Raleigh News and Observer, an N.C. State University student from Salisbury was charged Tuesday with growing psilocybin mushrooms.
Nathan Ryan Compton, 19, of 260 Joy Circle in Salisbury, was charged with one felony count each of manufacturing a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and maintaining a vehicle or dwelling place for a controlled substance.
He told the officer that the plants were no good because he did not properly cultivate them.
Police also charged Compton with one misdemeanor count of drug paraphernalia, according to arrest warrants filed Tuesday at the Wake County Magistrate’s Office.
Police charged Compton after the mushrooms were found growing in a dish at his Raleigh residence at 2023 Ocean Reef Place.
Officers also found a glass pipe, a plastic inhalation device and rolling papers inside the home, court records show. Compton does not have a prior criminal history, according to court records. He was being held at the Wake County jail in lieu of $5,000 bail.
