Salvia Divinorum or Salvinorin A - now illegal

Effective August 1, 2010 and applies to crimes committed on and after that date.

Creates crimes pertaining to the sale of or possession of salvia divinorum:
· Gross misdemeanor for the sale of any amount of salvia divinorum or salvinorin A; and
· Misdemeanor for the possession of any amount of salvia divinorum or salvinorin A.

Salvia divinorum is an herb used by the Mazatec Indians for its ritual divination and healing. According to the D.E.A. “Salvinorin A and Salvia divinorum products are abused for their ability to evoke hallucinogenic effects, which, in general, are similar to those of other scheduled hallucinogenic substances.” A link to additional information:

NOTE: It's not clear what constitutes lawful possession, but I assume (and hope) that cultures that use this in ritual would be exempt.

Generally, laws which are not intended to infringe on religious freedoms, but are applied equally to everyone, trump First Amendment rights. But, like with Native American peyote rituals, I would hope that a little common sense and discretion from the police and prosecutors would prevail. At least there's a better case for it than for khat.

Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?

I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost
on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely overwhelmed ..

Any suggestions? Appreciate it!
