Salvia Divinorum (Salvia) or Salvinorin A, street names Salvia, Divine Sage and Magic Mint is a legal, powerful natural hallucinogen marketed to and easily accessed by teens on the web and at times, health and spirituality stores. Health care and law enforcement officials described Salvia as an organic hallucinogen as potent as LSD. Users dispute the comparing of Salvia to LSD and insist that it is a mild, harmless perception and spirituality enhancer.
Salvia Divinorum is not a new drug or plant. Classified in the sage/mint family the Mazatec Indians of Northern Mountains in Oaxaca, Mexico have been using the leafy plant in healing and in religious ceremonies for centuries. The drug itself provides a trip for the user that can range from mild to extreme. Cases have been documented of users falling asleep while driving and walking through glass walls while under its influence.
