Parents! Pay Attention!

I like to scan around on the internet. I read my local newspapers online and I also read CNN online.

Growing Alarm Over Hallucinogenic Herb

There's growing alarm about an herb that teenagers are trying.
The herb makes them hallucinate. It's been compared to acid and LSD. It is legal in some states.
It's called Salvia. It's being marketed to teenagers. Teens who used it have stated that it's so easy to get. One teenager even stated that it's something that you smoke and it will make you hallucinate. The hallucinate is so strong that you would have to ask people what you did after smoking it.
Salvia Divinorum is an herb in the mint family.
Within minutes outside of a high school users were found with this drug.
Salvia has been banned in some states.
Teens have reported that it is easy to find. They are finding it on the Internet and at smoke shops. Nutrition shops carry Salvia also.
It does in some instances create some violent behavior and some hallucinations that could cause harm kids.
