Plant of the past?As the businesses that hawk salvia divinorum hail, the herb is a miracle cure for all that ails. According to Florida legislators, that may not be such a good thing.

Aware of that, businesses have added “hurry, time is running out” to their advertisements. So what’s the fuss?

The government is considering a ban on salvia divinorum because of its ability to alter the senses. Many have compared the drug’s affect to that of marijuana. Once authorities heard that, the law circled ready to abolish.

Eight states have already put legal limitations on the easy-to-obtain plant and Florida seeks to be the ninth. Lawmakers would have anyone arrested with the plant or its usable street form to serve up to five years in prison.

Salvia divinorum is a native plant of Mexico and is still solely grown in that country. Users describe the drug as more of a hallucinogen like LSD. Because of the mind-altering nature of the substance, the legal establishment would like to get it out of circulation.
