Legally High

Legally High, Chris Harris,
Hartford Advocate
A Mexican herb that packs a hallucinogenic punch is gaining
notoriety for its intense experiences, but also for being legal in
the United States, reports Chris Harris of the Hartford
Salvia divinorum, a type of sage plant long used
by Mexico’s Mazatec Indians, contains levels of hallucinogens
greater than those of peyote or psilocybin mushrooms. Although
scientists have known of Salvia for at least 40 years, neurologists
are still unsure of how the drug affects the brain’s
neurotransmitters. And while only five years have passed since
Salvia became a popular recreational drug, the Drug Enforcement
Administration already knows about it. There are no immediate plans
to regulate the herb, but a DEA spokesman says they’re in the
process of ‘collecting information on it.’
