Disturbing Nightline - Salvia divinorum use, experiences and other info.
I just watched a very disturbing Nightline on ABC. I am not unfamiliar with these grocery store drugs and not meaning to incriminate myself, did experience pot smoking during high school. I mean, I went to high school in the 70's! Even our teachers were smoking pot.

It was so sad to see this young man's mother describing the death of her 17 year old son. She fully believed that he smoked so much salvia that it changed his thought process somehow. He left behind a diary of his experiences on salvia. His father found him in a tent set up in his garage with a barbecue grill. What an awful way for this young guy to die who had everything going for him. Didn't have a history of depression. Just sad. Very sad. And the really scary part...this drug is legal in all fifty states and readily available on the internet. Scary. God help today's kids.

Never even heard of Salvia before. I've personally have never taken illicit drugs before so I don't know what they can do to you. I've seen the effects and have had many opportunities to try, but watching others made me not want to be like them.

I see it is legal in Canada. I've never heard of anyone using it yet.
