“On the presumed French case of fatality caused by ingestion of Liberty Caps”. 
Eleusis. 1996 Dec;6:40-41.
In 1996, in a magazine of mycology, two French Authors reported a case of fatal poisoning due to ingestion of Liberty Caps (Psilocybe semilanceata) which have well-known "hallucinogenic" properties. The case would have occurred in France in 1993. Following a careful analysis of the data reported by the two French Authors their work appears to be invalidated by numerous methodological deficiencies and contradictions and their conclusion (that the Liberty caps were the direct cause of the fatality) is to be considered unacceptable for this reason.
