Popular Drug May Be Outlawed In Georgia

The Georgia House has approved a measure to outlaw the hallucinogenic herb salvia. The House on Monday voted 162-2 for a bill which would make it illegal to possess, buy, sell or cultivate salvia in Georgia.

An exception was made when the plant is used for landscaping or other aesthetic purposes. A number of states are considering outlawing the drug for fear it could become the next marijuana.

It's become popular with young people because it's inexpensive and easy to buy. The measure, sponsored by state Rep. John Lunsford, R-McDonough, now goes to the Senate for consideration.
