[FONT=Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif] Salvia Divinorumis in the news again. 2012 Doomsday Cult followers claim the government's efforts to outlaw the herb is a direct violation of their constitutionally protected religious rights.
As 2012 is approaching so is all the doomsday talk. Doomsday Cult followers claim the government is trying to ban salvia divinorum to prevent people from "seeing." They go on saying that this is a direct violation of their religious right.
Researchers, herbalists, mental health specialists, and especially addicts are
showing interest in a Mexican sacramental herb that contains an anti-addictive pain killer that can even get people off other addicting substances. Salvia Divinorum references show how the herb can address alcohol, cocaine, opiate heroin and morphine, nicotine, tobacco and amphetamine addiction.
Salvinorin A is the first known naturally-occurring non-nitrogenous full kappa-opioid receptor agonist, and it is the only diterpenoid compound known to have activity at this important receptor. This has recently opened up vast new areas for research in diterpenoid pharmacology and it represents a potential molecular target for the development of herbs to treat disorders characterized by alterations in perception, including schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease and bipolar disorder.
At the same time some States are trying to ban Salvia Divinorum. Most are failing in their attempts due to the lack of support from the voters.
