UK government to ban sale of Salvia and ALL psychoactives

Postby kedabra » Fri May 29, 2015 6:44 am

UK government is introducing new legislation that bans sales of ALL psychoactive substances bar alcohol/nicotine/caffeine, no longer by chemical structure but by "psychoactivity". Possession is still legal but production and supply are now punishable by a seven year jail term. So no more head shops or legal online sales of any entheogens in the UK....

Seems like they would need to have some really specific details as to what qualifies something as 'psychoactive'. You could run into something as ridiculous as chocolate being illegal. Why not just take the same approach as Portugal? People are always going to want to alter their consciousness on some level.
