The Illegal Quarter; Salvia Divinorum also Banned in North Carolina
North Carolina joins 13 other US states in making hallucinogenic herb Salvia illegal
Zephyr Cove, Nevada – June 29th 2009: North Carolina has become the 14th state to make hallucinogenic herb Salvia Divinorum illegal, joining one quarter of the whole of the United States to have passed similar laws. The NC law is slightly looser than its contemporary’s (many of which put Salvia in the same class as heroin) as Senate Bill 138 deems that anyone in possession, selling or buying the herb will face fines for their first two offences and charges thereon.
This development means potential losses for the Salvia market, yet some companies anticipate a sharp rise in sales shortly before the law is passed. This could even lead to sustained sales from returning customers who travel to neighbouring states to buy and smoke the Mexican hallucinogen legally. Nevada based Salvia retailer FreshSalvia.com are selling live Salvia plants for the limited time leading up to and around the passing of the law.
“Salvia Divinorum in the form of dried leaves, extract and live plants is recognised for its healing and divination qualities” says FreshSalvia.com founder Moira Ramone, “It’s simply a legal way for people to relax and experience the joys of spiritual enhancement, so we’ll try and keep it that way for as long as possible.”
Established at the start of 2009, FreshSalvia.com is still a young company, yet one which has established a solid customer base with its expanding range of Salvia Divinorum products. Customers make orders on the FreshSalvia.com website, which sells dried leaves, Salvia extract, Salvia Divinorum packages and now live Salvia plants, delivered in oversized planter boxes.
As the 14th US state prepares to pass a law deeming the sale, purchase and possession of hallucinogenic herb Salvia illegal, Nevada based online retailers FreshSalvia.com have widened their product lines. Live Salvia Divinorum plants are being sold on the company’s website for a short period, so opportunistic North Carolinians are expected to take advantage of the limited offer before the law is passed.
