Call to ban hallucinogenic drug

31st March 2009

Health workers have said salvia, a legally available herbal drug which causes strong hallucinations, should be banned in Northern Ireland.

The drug is outlawed in some of the USA and Europe, but can legally be grown and sold in Northern Ireland. If salvia is snorted it can make users feel depressed or hallucinate, but if drunk as an infusion it can help sleep. "I would like to see this listed as a grade C drug," said Phelim Breen of the Youth Justice Agency.
