Motion of the Day

From John Mann
That this House notes that salvia divinorum is a drug with hallucinogenic effects; is concerned that this drug is entirely legal and sold freely in the UK and is cited on websites selling it as `the drug the Government forgot to ban'; is further concerned that young people have taken to using sites like YouTube to broadcast their friends taking the drug and experiencing the hallucinogenic effects; and urges the Government to take urgent steps to rectify this oversight and to refer this drug to the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs with a view to banning salvia divinorum under the provisions of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.
Utterly pointless, it's not that popular and it isn't something you recreationally do. As one person pointed out here in April, "You don't take salvia, the salvia takes YOU." I guess that it's places like Salvia Online that worry Mr Mann.
