The documentary is available online for a short time:

Again, well balanced. The journalist even tries some plain leaf for himself.

nice to see a balanced report for once

if salvia ever does get made illegal it will
only cause more intrest in the drug and
more kids will recklessly experiment with it

I agree, illegality simply draws attention and interest from people who may have difficult experiences with the plant.
The government should just understand that this plant is not 'legal acid' or some of the other ridiculous things I have read, and while I have not tried it yet I understand that it must be approached with respect and appropriate caution as with all major psychoactive substances.

A lot of people stay away from legal drugs thinking they have near to no effect. Making it illegal does the opposite.
