POSSESSION OF SALVIA DIVINORUM AND SALVINORIN A IS NOW ILLEGAL IN ITALY
The Italian Ministry of Health has placed Salvia divinorum and salvinorin A
in "Tabella 1" of the Tabelle Sostanze Stupefacenti o Psicotrope (Italy's
list of prohibited drugs). It is now illegal to possess these substances in
Italy. An ordinance issued last year only prohibited the sale of Salvia
divinorum and salvinorin A.

LOUISIANA STATE HOUSE BILL 20 SEEKS TO MAKE SALVIA DIVINORUM ILLEGAL
On February 25, 2005, Representative Michael G. Strain (R) introduced House
Bill 20 to the Louisiana State Legislature. This bill seeks to make it
illegal to possess, manufacture, or distribute hallucinogenic plants that
are intended for human consumption. The text of the bill includes a list of
40 species in its definition of the term "hallucinogenic plant." Only a few
of the plants and fungi listed contain compounds that are controlled
substances. Some of the plants are quite obscure, some are commonly grown as
ornamentals, and some are not actually hallucinogenic. Salvia divinorum is
one of the plants listed. The proposed penalty for possession would be
imprisonment with or without hard labor for not more than five years and, in
addition, a possible fine of up to $5,000. The proposed penalty for
manufacture or distribution would be imprisonment with or without hard labor
for not less than two years nor more than 10 years and, in addition, a
possible fine of up to $20,000.
