Salvia...Smoke some act like Nancy Pelosi.
The scream and roll drug? Are they even enjoying it?
Isn’t it currently legal?
How could anyone identify the plant based on that picture? There might be some in my back yard. Who knows or cares?
Watching that video is enough to make any sane person say “no thanks” to salvia. It doesn’t look like a fun high, it looks like it makes a person have some form of seizure disorder. Look at the way some people’s arms and hands get all twisted up like they have palsy or something.
I hope they don’t make having the plant illegal, I have some and it is great because it is no fuss and handles the hot dry weather great.
and it smells about 50 times worse than pot too
which sounds incredible
lol oh gosh...
Misterioso- I’m not sure. I buy a bunch of the Bi-color Salvia (beautiful blue) every year & although it’s supposed to be heat/ drought tolerant, last year was the first year it’s thrived. The leaves on that are tinged with purple & a little thinner.
Guess we better keep it in the backyard.
Like the old Steve Martin routine...
“Hey man, you wanna try some s—t?”
“Sorry man, I don’t smoke marijuana.”
“Marijuana? This is s—t”
“I’m smoking my own s—t.”
The states have never amended the Constitution to make smoking anything an expressly protected right. It’s ultimately up to a state’s voters to exercise their 10th Amendment-protected state powers to decide if you’ve got a “right” to smoke a given substance in their state.
Salvia leaves have been dried and smoked for many centuries. Just like Datura, Belladona, Henbane, Absenthia, Valerian and , of course, Marijuana. And all of them are very easy to grow in an average backyard garden. And like all natural mind altering herbs, they have to be used in moderation. If you over-imbibe, then you will definitely see demons. And except for marijuana, none of these plants are illegal. Is that cool, or what?
I hope all the Pot Heads don’t learn how great Oleander and Datura is! /s
Some of those plants mentioned are pretty poisonous. Like drop dead poisonous if consumed in the wrong manner or by the wrong people.
Once or twice a year we have someone go to the ER from using Jimson Weed, they make it into a tea and drink it. I have two in my back yard and they throw some huge white blooms that smell great. Honey bee’s go after them like crazy. They grow wild on the ranch also and every now and then the cows will eat them, it’s what the old folks called loco weed. All my cows are crazy so no way I can tell if it does anything to them. Some people call it Thorn Berry due to the seed pods having thorns on them.
