Hey Brian!
I am impressed! Of course, that was  about 30 years ago.  Since then, with the
wide disemination of knowledge and the availability of grow kits, things have
probably changed.  I would be surprised if this information is still accurate
or useful (but this does not lessen how impressed I am that you found a 30 year
old reference.)

I still maintain that the biggest danger of psilocybin mushrooms is
incarceration, followed immediately by rape, AIDS, and death.  This would no
doubt be reported as a "mushroom related death!"

However, as with other mushrooms, if you can't ID it yourself why do you think
your friends can do any better? Always be suspicious of information.
