'Salvia Killed My Son,' Says Mother

Since her son's death, Kathleen Chidester has worked tirelessly with states such as California, Florida, and Illinois to criminalize the sale or use of salvia. Her efforts began in Delaware, where the legislature in 2006 enacted a statute called "Brett's Law" that classifies Salvia divinorum as a Schedule I controlled substance, making its possession, use, or consumption punishable as a class B misdemeanor, carrying a minimum $500 fine.

"My hope and goal is to have salvia regulated across the U.S.," Chidester says. "It is my son's legacy and I will not end my fight until this happens... To lose a boy so bright, so warm, so intelligent, with so much to offer the world, is incomprehensible to me--and all due to a mind-altering drug that continues to be legal in many states."
