I and a friend of mine had a debate about Psilocybe genus mushrooms in the Balkans.

He said that they were brought to the Balkans by people and that there were not any Psilocybe mushrooms there before people brought spores or otherwise allowed them to reproduce. Is this true or not?

If not true, what are the conditions for such mushrooms to grow (e.g., Psilocybe semilanceata)?
