Is Salvia a Miracle Drug?

In Tennessee, ingesting salvia is a Class A misdemeanor, but possessing the herb is legal. In California and Maine, possession is legal but sale to a minor is prohibited.

Legislation to criminalize salvia is pending in at least 13 more states. For example, an Iowa bill would make salvia possession a felony, while a bill introduced in Massachusetts would make such possession a misdemeanor.

Griffiths and other researchers are even more concerned about what federal officials may do. “A move by the DEA to put salvia on the controlled substances list could be a real possibility,� Griffiths says.

Asked for comment, DEA officials would say only that they are in the process of evaluating salvia.
