Here is a nice tidbit of info I found at Erowid's vaults:

Psilocybin, psilocin and psilocybian mushrooms have very low toxicity - in tests with mice, doses up to 200 mg of pure psilocybin/kg of body weight have been injected intravenously without lethal effects (that would be 13 grams of pure psilocybin per average human (65 kg / 140 lbs). The ED50:LD50 ratio is 641 according to the NIOSH Registry of Toxic Effects; compare this with 9637 for vitamin A, 4816 for LSD, 199 for aspirin and 21 for nicotine. According to Leo Hollister, Jonathon Ott, and John Allen, one would have to consume their body weight in fresh mushrooms or eat approximately 19 grams of the pure chemical substance to bring on death. As long as Psilocybin mushrooms are properly identified, poisoning is not a problem.

I always research drugs, before I tried any drug for the first time, I made sure I knew what I was getting into. I have a list (not like on paper, in my head) of what drugs I'll tryif they come my way.

A little note to those of you who call enlightening tools drugs. Drugs are what your phsycotic mom takes 3 or 4 times a day, what your little brother takes to (make him learn better)2 times a day, or perhaps what the local e.r. docter picks up from the rx when he has a double shift.... There are many substances that do not fit into the drug category...Drugs are for scumbags, knowledge however can change the whole equation..........Ahealthy harvest to all.....
