POLICE WANT TO BAN SALE OF LEGAL HALLUCINOGEN

'Diviner's Sage' Used For Centuries In Mexico

SASKATOON - Police forces are growing more concerned about the
potential effects of a legal hallucinogen sold in hemp stores and on
the Internet. But users defend the powerful herbal psychedelic as a
mind-altering, but altogether safe trip.

The herb is Salvia divinorum, known more commonly as salvia, magic
mint, or the diviner's sage, an unregulated hallucinogen that is
legal to possess, distribute and consume in most places in the world.
In Canada, salvia is not regulated under the Controlled Drugs and
Substances Act, but it is banned in Australia. Several U.S. states
are currently considering a ban.

Police in Saskatoon admit they haven't had any specific problems with
salvia and can't do anything about it, but say it may only be a
matter of time before something happens.

"Stores shouldn't be selling it to anybody, period," said Sgt. Jerome
Engele with the Saskatoon police integrated drug unit. "It's legal,
and that's a problem. Unless drugs have some kind of medicinal
purpose, they shouldn't be sold. It's caused epileptic seizures and
put people in comas in other places.

"Stores that sell the stuff should be held liable if anyone is
injured as a result."

Health Canada has been "monitoring" the national and international
trend of salvia use, but says the long-term effects of the
hallucinogen are unknown. In the short term, they say, it has been
known to cause unconsciousness and short-term memory loss, but it is
not aware of any dependency.

Salvia has been used for hundreds of years by the Mazatec indigenous
people of Mexico for spiritual trips and is usually chewed or smoked.
It gives users a short but powerful hallucination, lasting anywhere
from 30 seconds to 30 minutes.

I'm sure the cop just pulled that one right out of his arse.

Back in the 60's they used to pull out of their ass about LSD - "It will damage your chromasomes!" And when you challenged them they would say...well it might...and do you want to be the one to take a chance on having defective kids?" ( of course I laughed and said "Sure, I'll give it a go!")

Amazing what the brainwashed masses have to say about use of plants and the bullshit storys and scary lies they come up with. It's no surprise at all to me considering the billions of dollars the USA has spent on brainwashing advertisement and hardhanded police tactics upon the population.

Stock up now and start growing your own. It's just a matter of time. Maybe if we can first get past the climate of these republican holy roller assholes leading the country and get more moderate people in government we can begin to lean away from this mad war on drugs mindset, but without that change in government as a first step resistance is futile. The last election is a step in the right direction, but we need a much bigger step.

It seems to me that talking to people around you about what the holy-roller right wing scum are doing to this country and changing their vote and their attitude is the only real way there. We made SO MUCH progress in the 60's...most everyone was getting cool about smoking weed and it looked like personal freedoms were going to happen, then it all slid backwards to the point it is at now. It's very sad.

Peace,

Where did those 60's people go to? Some say they now have jobs working against drug legalization. I say they have been repressed by lesser human beings.

I think there are still a lot of 60's people around but many have have been absorbed by the borg and many have forgotten and just don't care anymore.

Repressed by lesser human beings is part of it too I think. For example, I know that if I get arrested for drug use and my company finds out I will lose my job, get faced with massive legal fees, and maybe even lose my home.
When I was younger I had nothing to lose and I didn't give a rats ass, so I was much harder to repress. Now I'm older and more easily controlled...sigh...but at least I admit it. All I can do these days is speak with people I know well and try to forward the idea that use of some of the substances like 420 and salvia are good and to try to foster an open attitude.

Peace,
