In brief: Not usually

The world of fungi is amazing and complex, but people don't usually put hallucinogenic mushrooms in food.
Psilocybin mushrooms and amanita muscaria are two which are known to induce hallucinations -- and which can be poisonous. These are very different from the morels, truffles, and portebellos which safely enhance our spaghetti sauce and other edibles.
