Hallucinogenic herb sold in some Toronto shops

Hallucinogenic herb sold in some Toronto shops
Last Updated: Monday, October 5, 2009 | 12:00 PM ET
CBC News

A potent hallucinogenic herb that has been banned in some U.S. states, Japan and parts of Australia is readily available in some Toronto shops.

Salvia divinorum, or diviner's sage, is a member of the mint family. Shamans in Mexico have traditionally used the herb to induce visions.

But some Canadians have started smoking the herb for another reason — to get high. Video clips of teenagers who are high on the herb have appeared on the internet. As depicted in the videos, the high comes on quickly and intensely, and often involves hallucinations.

Because salvia isn't regulated in Canada, it's legal to both sell and use diviner's sage, as long as no health claims for the herb are made.

Chad Mutchler, the manager of a shop that sells smoking accessories on Queen Street West, told CBC News that he follows the same rules that guide tobacco sales when he sells the dried herb.

"We regulate it ourselves for our own peace of mind. We will not sell it to anybody under 19, which falls under the paper-tobacco law for cigarettes," Mutchler said.

But not all the shops in the city follow those rules. Because the herb isn't regulated, there are no age limits on who can buy it.

Toronto high school student Craig Strepnik said the herb is easy to find, and that teenagers can buy salvia more easily than they can buy cigarettes.

Health Canada wouldn't say how salvia is classified — only that it is not a controlled substance.
