Bill to Ban Salvia Divinorum in Maryland [MD] Help me fight back!
On January 14, 2009, Senator Richard Colburn (R) introduced Senate Bill 9 to the Maryland State Legislature. If enacted, this bill would make Salvia divinorum a Schedule I controlled substance in that state. The text only mentions Salvia divinorum it does not mention salvinorin A.
                    Source: http://www.sagewisdom.org/legalstatus.html

I have already made a similar post about this issue on the the Shroomery.Org forums and the SalviaSource.Org forums and after receiving advice, have decided to raise alarm about this issue in attempts to gain backing in contacting State Legislature in stopping this Bill from banning the entheogenic herb Salvia Divinorum.

We have until the meeting on Tuesday, January 27 to fight this issue before it leaves the Committee level!

I apologize if I am going about spreading information about this issue the wrong way, but I honestly don't know much about trying to fight back against legislation. What I DO know is that if these bills pass many innocent Maryland citizens will be wrongfully incarcerated for an unharmful entheogen. I and thousands of others use Salvia Divinorum for an entheogenic (spiritual) purpose! Salvia is not a party drug, not addictive, and has medicinal and therapeutic potential which out-rules it from being a Schedule I substance. THIS IS AN OUTRAGE AND A VIOLATION OF OUR RIGHTS! Help me contact Maryland legislature and fight back against this redicolous "War on Drugs" and violation of our rights.

Please fellow Salvia enthusiasts, I can only do so much on my own. I need your help in making sure no more of our rights are stripped away... Thank you and I apologize if I have gone about posting this in the wrong way. I am in the process of sending out e-mails to NORML, DPA, ASA and MPP.

The Best Kept Drug Secrets
Officer, will you hold my drugs for me?" ~slogan of legal_highs

Join legal_highs to discuss how to attain legal highs with experienced users, newbies, ethnobotanists, and herbalists. legal_highs is unofficially partnered with the popular drug community chemicalwhores and we're always looking for new members.

Wait... aren't "drugs" illegal? Do "legal" drugs even exist? If it's legal, it doesn't *do* anything

Actually, no!

Dont be skeptical about "legal" drugs, they're not all legal b/c they're ineffective, they're usually legal because:

-young people arent abusing it and dying from it
-it isnt well-known/there isnt much hype surrounding the drug
-it has "needed" and proven medicinal effects (like dex in cough syrup)
-it's hard to get a hand on unless you're old enough to have a credit card (i.e. can buy it on the internet)
-what is "legal" and what is "illegal" really depends on context, what country/state you're in, exposure, abuse, and poularity. For long stretches of time the following drugs were legal and acceptable for recreational and medicinal use in the United States and UK: cocaine, heroin, opium, marijuana, ecstacy, and acid. Drug laws are different from country to country and even from US state to US state.

Please read the rules carefully prior to joining. You must:
-have an ACTIVE journal that has been established and used for at least a few months
-you must have your full D.O.B. listed in your userinfo and it MUST be both truthful and 18+

(You can join legal_highs as a non-drug user, a person simply interested in different herbs/drug policy/drug laws, etc. as we cover all of those topics)

Great rip off of my community's fucking interests.

I really like how you just completely copied them from chemicalwhores as if you wrote them.

Get a life, dickweed.
