I have lived in Utah before and it is a very controlled place. SLC is getting a little bit liberal (for Utah) but that is it. The Mormon Church controls Everything. When you go to the state controlled liquor store, which are usually hidden they videotape everyone that goes in and probation officers go over the tapes every week. They have a very tight society structured by the church, all parts of a town are separated into wards controlled by bishops who are controlled by elders who are controlled by the apostles who are controlled by the prophet, yes they have prophet who goes on T.V. and give “revelations” as to how everyone should believe and behave. It is a cult in every sense of the definition. I think they would have alcohol and cigarettes illegal if they could.

The same church that controls Utah also controls Nevada so should legislation pass in Utah it will have some what of a domino effect.
My thoughts exactly. Time to stock up or grow or both.

Go to the site and post, post anywhere else as well. Stand up and speak your mind.

Anecdotal reports of curing depression and obsessive/compulsive disorders, (as well as meth addiction) are starting to show up. This plant may have valuable poperties as well as its entheogen effects. I think it may help cure addictions as well, (worked for me:mrgreen: :mrgreen: ) Jupe

How about an antidepressant? Better than Prozac right?

sorry about the late post. im in the salt lake area and ksl wasnt the only news channel that did a report about this a few weeks ago..

its sad that they dont do reports in a non biased way. I guess its not much of a shock that they have to use fear to get some actual information out, the government does it all the time.

Wow, that one is even worse.

"Methamphetamine. Cocaine. LSD. We've all heard how dangerous, even deadly, these drugs can be. But have you heard of salvia divinorum? It's an herb, but some call it the world's most potent natural hallucinogen. "
