Fatality after consuming hallucingenic mushrooms

After my post, I would like to thank the posters who offered correction on 
P. semilanceata, and apologize as well.  In fact, while I hold by what I said- 
and 50 still sounds like a lot to me, I am unfamiliar with this species.  I 
suppose I was going on the idea that is was similar to P. cubensis.  Again, 
my apologies and thanks...this is what makes this newsgroup great in my 
opinion- the information available.
Finally, however, the point was brought up that 50 was not "terminal"; 
suppossedly to defend the dosage.  But this is exactly what I am against- 
people, especially young people, should not be risking anywhere's near a 
"terminal" dosage.  If the term even crosses one's mind, one should slow 
way down and think long and hard about what they are up to.  Classically 
speaking, such "terminal" or near-"terminal" doses are for Shamans 
alone, or suicides.  I see little of the former these days as  I look around 
me, but sadly, all too many of the latter.   Peace,  Richard
