Salvia up for prohibition again


Throughout the entire course of human history, there has never been an example of a successful government ban on a substance, whether booze or coke or pot or DMT (in fact, 100 percent of these undertakings have resulted in little more than resource-wasting, liberty-crushing, criminal-empowering, monumental failures), but Minnesota lawmakers think this time, this substance, will be different. 

A bipartisan bill introduced earlier this week would make Salvia divinorum a Schedule I drug, thereby making anyone who holds it or trades it a criminal.

We'll spare you the rant, but you should probably read this.

As for the bill's co-authors...
