Police officers in Edinburgh and Glasgow have used new legal powers to seize magic mushrooms.
Hallucinogenic mushrooms have been reclassified as a Class A drug
Lothian and Borders Police found half a kilo of the product during raids on two shops in Southside and Tollcross.
Strathclyde officers seized mushrooms worth £6,000 after searching a house in Newarthill, North Lanarkshire.
The fungi, which contain the psychedelic chemical psilocybin, has been reclassified by the UK Government as a Class A drug.
A Lothian and Borders Police spokeswoman said that most shop owners selling psilocybin products were aware of the change in the law.
She added: "Up until recently there were a number of shops in Edinburgh that imported and sold magic mushrooms.
"Following government reclassification magic mushrooms became a Class A drug and for people to possess or sell them will now be a criminal offence."
The Drugs Act 2005 closed a loophole in which fresh magic mushrooms were legal but those which were dried or prepared for use were not.
On Tuesday evening Strathclyde officers searched a house and recovered a haul of mushrooms.
A 33-year-old man will be reported to the procurator fiscal in connection with the incident.
The mushrooms are usually eaten raw or dried out and can produce a hallucinogenic effect similar to LSD.
