It caused one of their sons to laugh uncontrollably while the rest of the family experienced vertigo.

These mushrooms grow mostly in the northern part of Europe and are fond of rich acidic soil that is heavily fertilized by cow or sheep dung. They are most likely to grow in grasslands and meadows. Liberty caps are small in size and are quite potent. While they are easily grown outdoors, it is quite difficult for growers to cultivate them indoors.
