Formerly legal drug now illegal in Ohio



Published: Wed, December 17, 2008 @ 2:38 p.m.

COLUMBUS — Lawmakers have signed off on legislation that would make it illegal to sell or possess a currently legal hallucinogenic herb and have sent the bill to Gov. Ted Strickland for his signature.

House Bill 215 passed the Ohio Senate on Tuesday, with House concurrence today. It was among the flurry of last-minute bills that made it through the legislative process in the final days of the Legislature’s lame-duck session.

The bill would add Salvia Divinorum and its derivative, Salvinorin A, to the list of Schedule I Controlled Substances, ranking it with marijuana, hashish and about 30 others.

Madness!! The only people celebrating this law are drug dealers who now have a new product to sell, and law enforcement who now have a new reason for apprehending and searching young people.

You know someone has made a BIG mistake when illegal drug dealers and law enforcement agree on something!!

Here's a better plan. Get the drugs out of the hands of drug dealers by legalizing their sale to adults. Use by minors will decrease dramatically, drug dealers will disappear, and law enforcement costs will reduce substantially. Wait a year, this decision will bite us in the butt!
