Law enforcement officials in 36 states have declared that they have no plans to ban the sale and/or distribution of the potent hallucinogen Salvia Divinorum because the product does not make the person feel good.
"It was the worst high I ever had", said UC Berkley drug researcher Dr. Jonathan Crumpet. "It made me feel like I was two-dimensional – like two pages out of a book. I never want to feel like that again.
Crumpet stated that LSD and mushrooms were a much more pleasant trip and he advised his graduate students to continue research into those two substances.
However, the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) encourages young people to try the drug. "We want kids to think this is what drugs are about so they will stay off drugs", said DEA Acting Administrator Michele Leonhart.
Leonhart stated that too many young people are getting turned onto "feel good" drugs such as meth, cocaine , heroin and marijuana. If they found a legal alternative they would refrain from engaging in illegal activities.
"If I catch my kids using Salvia I wouldn't even punish them because use of the drug is punishment enough", Leonhart stated.
Some college age students declared that they actually like the drug and would continue using it on a recreational basis.
"I like feeling two dimensional", said 24-year-old UCLA post doctoral student Rebecca Fletcher. "It's such an escape from this four dimensional world!"
Salivia Divinorum is available at most smoke shops throughout the United States.
