there hasn’t been legislation passed against it yet but it is under review by the government. Get some now before its illegal.

It is illegal in Illinois as of this past Jan 1. I don’t think it should be illegal, although its way scarier to use than other similarly harmless intoxicants.

its not illegal because everyone knows how homosexual of a drug it is. Its way too expensive for such a short trip. Now acid, its cheap and you trip for hours and hours. Trust me. Stick to the good drugs.

homosexual isn’t a word to be used as an insult.

@Jody relax. You yourself obviously didnt get the facts. Salvia divinorum is a very very safe drug. There are no heath risks of taking it and no danger will come to you as long as you dont act stupid. This is why its important to have a sitter there with you to watch over you. As with all drugs it is important to know what you are putting into your body and how it effects you. Salvia is in no way a party drug and should only be used in small company. Smoking salvia is taking a spiritual trip into your inner being and you will be overwhelmed if you are not prepared for it. At this point i realize i am rambling the main point im trying to get across is salvia isnt bad for you and there is no reason for it to be illegal. For more information check out erowid.

@jiboo420 Why insult something like that and call it homosexual or gay? You realize talking like that really only takes away your credibility on subject right? Maybe you didnt have good salvia or maybe you didnt smoke it right but salvia is surly a drug to be respected. As far as expense goes im not really sure what you would consider expensive because i don’t know your financial situations but 10 dollars for a gram of 20x salvia isn’t expensive.

@jiboo420 – Using ‘gay’ to mean ‘lame’ makes you (and anyone else who does it) look like an idiot. Take it out of your lexicon and do the world a favor.

I think it’s not illegal on a grand scale yet because, so far, it hasn’t been much of a problem. Some states have made it illegal, but this is the typical knee-jerk, puritanical reaction of the U.S.—we don’t really know what it is, it’s potentially a recreational substance, so we have to make it illegal.

Honestly, I doubt Salvia will ever gain widespread recreational use, as with other substances. It’s way too intense and can be really scary because the taker can be entirely unaware of the world outside of his mind. Hallucinogens are not something to be taken lightly, you have to gauge your mental state and whether you think you can handle the complete reordering of your thoughts and such.
