Don't be worried about touching it and then smoking the cigarette. Mold grows everywhere, and if you go outside at all you'll be exposed to a variety of mold spores on a daily basis. It becomes a problem when huge swathes of mold are growing inside your house and you are getting constant exposure. As for the mold on the mushroom, so long as the mushroom isn't rotting, couldn't you just cut the part with mold off? I've been doing that for years with bread that has moldy crust, and I'm no worse for wear.
