Recognized by sight: I saw these in person. Very cool blue coloring especially around the stipe base and the cap margin. They lacked the farinaceous odor that psilocybin mushrooms have.

It does appear to be one of the bluing Mycenas, but the pictures are too blurry to see for sure. While there are some reports of them containing psilocybin, I know of no reliable reports of anyone eating them and getting high. Some Mycena species are toxic, containing muscarine. You found an interesting mushroom and it would be great if you can get some clear pictures of it using a digital camera on macro mode. These are too dangerous to try to eat – You should be looking for Psilocybe cyanescens and Psilocybe cyanofriscosa instead. They are in season in your area right now.

ADDED SOME SORTA BETTER PICS.
MYCENA CYANORRHIZACONTAINS THE HALL.COMPOND PSILY.” QOUTE FROM WIKIPEDIA.
WHY IS THIS NOT WHAT THE M WANTS?

ARE THERE ALSO TOXINS THERE IN?
CAN THE GOODYS BE SPERATED EASILY FROM THE BADYS?

Your blurry photo is deplorable. White spores and white gills with that general stature and blue coloration points to Mycena, which is not what you want. You probably have a mixed collection. Could be some death in there. Post some real pics if you want an ID.
