    use yahoo,





    Salvia divinorum is a soft-leaved green plant, native to Southern Mexico, which contains a powerful psychoactive chemical known as Salvinorin. S. divinorum has been used traditionally in Mexico for healing and divination and became available in the underground psychedelic culture around the world starting in the early 1990's. S. divinorum is also known as "la pastora" / "the shepherdess", "the leaves of the shepherdess", "diviner's mint" or "diviner's sage", and in context simply as "Dalvia". There are many species and varieties within the genus 'Salvia' and plants commonly found in garden stores are almost certainly not S. divinorum unless specifically labelled as such

    You really got to watch out what you're smoking. Some plants can be very toxic!<img border="0" src= "smileys/smiley11.gif">

    not exactly but you can find san pedro at garden stores...sometimes, and you can't really smoke it either, you gotta eat it. Stores tend to not carry psychoactive plants for the obvious reason of them being used as drugs and then people blaming the store, so most likely no, you won't find psychoactive plants in any store, obviously there's gonna be exceptions out there.

    Most stores do not label San Pedro as such, but just as "assorted cacti". When you know what you're looking for, you'll spot them at first sight. You can also order san pedro on the net and once you've seen them go from there. When buying psychoactive plants in a garden store, make sure that you havean exact match on the botanical name. There are many herbs you can buy in stores that will give you some positive effect. Just check out the various herbs in the legal highs forum, note them down and see if you canfind them.
