Some of the folks who make their living off the immoral and failed war on drugs want to add yet another to the list of illegal substances:
The DEA is monitoring salvia to decide whether it should be regulated or banned outright, and a California assemblyman introduced legislation to outlaw it after law enforcement agencies in Southern California reported increased use. The legislation was voted down in committee in March, but Assemblyman Anthony Adams, R-Hesperia (San Bernardino County), has pledged to bring it up again next year.
“It’s kind of terrifying that we are actively allowing commerce of a drug that has LSD-like qualities,” Adams said. “Use of it is only going to get worse. There is no way this drug is going to get less popular.”
What is terrifying is that this guy wants to expand the government’s terroristic war against its own citizens, the people it is supposed to serve.
