Motion text

That this House notes that salvia divinorum is a drug with hallucinogenic effects; is concerned that this drug is entirely legal and sold freely in the UK and is cited on websites selling it as `the drug the Government forgot to ban'; is further concerned that young people have taken to using sites like YouTube to broadcast their friends taking the drug and experiencing the hallucinogenic effects; and urges the Government to take urgent steps to rectify this oversight and to refer this drug to the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs with a view to banning salvia divinorum under the provisions of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971.
