Whether you can consume Salvia or not depends on the state you reside in. There are some states where the drug is controlled. But in most of the states it is legal to use the drug. If you live in a state where Salvia is legal that means in that particular state it is legal to grow, buy, own, and sell Salvia. This also includes Salvia extracts. If someone decides to sell the herb as a supplement of some sort, then the sales must be confirmed to the U.S. Lawmakers perspective and if it is sold for consumption as a food or drug, then sales must be regulated by the FDA. Because the herb is not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration, the sale of the herb is probably illegal. The sale of an illegal drug in the United States is prosecutable by law under the FD&C’s misbranding clause and Lawmakers perspective. The larger the quantity the drug is sold in; there is a larger possibility that the person selling it will be prosecuted by the fullest extent of the Lawmakers perspective. It has been said that the US Air Force is actually considering having salvia divinorum added to their banned drug list. As said before, it all depends on which state that you live in and what are the rules and regulations there along with Lawmakers perspective that you will have to abide by. The state police, the federal police, the navy and even the air force all have there own rules that you have to abide by. So, if you plan to purchase, grow, sell or use Salvia, make sure to check Lawmakers perspective in your state first.
