“Fatal Poisoning After a Group of People Voluntarily Consumed Hallucinogenic Mushrooms [Intoxication mortelle a la suite de la consommation volontaire et en groupe de champignons hallucinogenes]”. 
Bull Soc Mycol France. 1996;112:1-14.
The authors report the fatality of a 22-year-old man after he and a group of friends voluntarily consumed hallucinogenic mushrooms, in this case Psilocybe semilanceata (Fr. : Fr.) Kummer. According to the best of our knowledge, up to now, this cosmopolitan species had never caused any fatalities, this is the first observation of this type ever made in the world, so the so-called innocuousness of hallucinogenic mushrooms is now questioned.
