A step closer to salvia divinorum scheduling

Having already had a motion tabled about it last October, questions are now being asked of the possibility of scheduling salvia divinorum - part of the mint family which ioncludes cat nip (drug for cats).

I guess it's only a matter of time now before the sale of leaf extract for crazy adrenaline trip junkies will be made illegal. However, the response says that the Government’s position "will be informed by Advisory Council’s advice", and they don't normally follow that.

Personally speaking I've never understood the logic of making plants illegal. One this is for sure with salvia, you'll never hear of someone smoking it and going postal, they won't be able to move when it rips them out of reality.

i really don't see the point in this; Salvia is definitely not a party drug!

being ripped out of reality and thrown into a place where time and space doesn't exist is not your average Friday night party.

the gov't need not fear this plant as there will not be a mass market for it. there will be a brief surge in people trying it out for the first time but 99% of those will never try it again.

the only consistent buyers will be the true oneironauts.

In fact banning it is likely to increase it's usage in the short term. But governments never let little things like that get in the way of their own urges... (Banning things seems to be as addictive as Crack cocaine to our lords and masters).

This stuff sucks anyways who cares. The plant is cool looking though and it gets huge and looks exotic. Not dangerous, the leafs taste bad and don’t do anything. Only those extracts do anything but it’s unpleasent and stupid. People are dumb if they think that is spiritual or whatever, it’s just dumb.
