Salvia....illegal?


Some one told me yesterday that salvia is illegal now? I never heard that before, I just got some in a trade and also have some growing from seeds.

Why would salvia be illegal?

RR, They are making one form of salvia illegal because some people have reported seeing GOD when they take it. That is so BAD!!!!! We can't have that happening, now can we?

Only illegal in Illinois judging by that article. God, if they made every plant illegal that one can get high on, our gardens would look a lot different. I think that the double standard is sickening. How many people have died from liquor and look at all the different plants that go into its manufacture. I think all plants should be legal. Someone just gave me a bunch of San Pedro cactus. I am making a fence out of it...... That's what I am going to tell them. I don't "DO" anything. I just love the flowers.

I am buying a gun if they make all salvias illegal. Let 'em just try and take my Salvia collection.

Thanks mara...according to info I found online that particular salvia is illegal in many places and regulated in many others places including several countries.

If people would stop being so stupid an not use the plants for things they are NOT intended for we would not have this problem of them being illegal.

I would love to own a lophophora williamsii cactus also but i cant. Its a lovely plant but very illegal in our country.

The whole genus of salvia has not been banned , only salvia divornum and that is only in some states. It would be impossible to ban the whole genous since some form of it grows just about everywhere, on all continents ( maybe not australia naturally). Only a few varieties actually has mind altering qualities.

I , personally, don't like the looks of salvia divornum. Its gangly and floppy and the flower is not much to talk about. There are so many other MUCH more gorgeous salvias, that unless you are into the high part, this plant is way more trouble than it is worth. I think this forum has a policy of not trading this plant because of its illegality . Makes sence to me.
