Magic mushrooms are mushrooms that grow in the wild. They produce similar hallucinogenic-type effects to LSD when you eat them. There are two main types and they're quite different. The most common form is a species called psilocybe semilanceata or ‘liberty cap', while the other more potent variety is amanita muscaria or ‘fly agaric'. There are deadly poisonous species of amanitas, so if you don't know what you're doing, it's wide not to take them.
Slang: Street names for drugs can vary around the country. Magic mushrooms, Liberties, magic's, mushies, liberty cap, shrooms, Amani, agaric.
• Both types of mushrooms can make you feel sick, tired and disoriented but fly agaric (Amanita Muscaria) is much more potent and risky to take.
