Salvia Criminalized in Louisiana
    #4377541 - 07/06/05 10:45 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

THE SALVIA DIVINORUM OBSERVER

Wednesday, July 6, 2005 / volume 3 number 14

The Salvia divinorum Research and Information Center (SDRIC)
http://www.sagewisdom.org/


LOUISIANA BECOMES THE FIRST STATE IN THE USA TO CRIMINALIZE SALVIA DIVINORUM

On June 28, 2005 Governor Kathleen Babineaux Blanco signed into law House
Bill 20. The new law, called Act No. 159, goes into effect on August 15,
2005. Beginning on that date, it will be illegal to possess, manufacture, or
distribute Salvia divinorum in Louisiana. The law applies to the plant
material itself, as well as mixtures that contain it and preparations made
from it. The penalty for possession is imprisonment with or without hard
labor for not more than 5 years and, in addition, a possible fine of up to
$5,000. The penalty for manufacture or distribution is imprisonment with or
without hard labor for not less than 2 years nor more than 10 years and, in
addition, a possible fine of up to $20,000.
The new law applies to numerous "hallucinogenic" plants and fungi, not just
Salvia divinorum. The law only applies when the material is intended for
human consumption. It does not apply to the possession, planting,
cultivation, growing, or harvesting of a hallucinogenic plant strictly for
aesthetic, landscaping, or decorative purposes.
The text of Act No. 159 is available at:

We all knew it was inevitable that this would begin in the US, but it saddens me nevertheless.

I was thinking that too. You'd either need to prove you were growing aesthetically or disprove you were growing for consumption. I guess this would now (legally) place Salvia on par with most other plants containing psychoactive compounds such as Hawaiian Baby Woodrose or Mimosa Hostilis. Still, I don't want to see stuff like this enacted in the first place.

So you can sell it for "aromatherapy" 

"Put 2 cups of leaves in water and boil"

Well, at least there is a month or so left to enjoy a good laughing spasm through personal consumption. I would be sure to inquire to the local head shops to see if they will be able to sell it through the loophole of no-personal use, but this is sure news to me. As someone who enjoys salvia from time to time in order to realy float away from reality, this is bad news at that! ( If I were to reside in this state :wink:)
