    Only grows in the Sierra Mazatec region of Mexico, pretty much. Not by kids high schools.

    P.S. what made you think that was Salvia?

    It's May Night Sage (Salvia nemorosa).
    It's not what You wants.

    see what simple searching can do? I recommend you try searching for your answers first, and if you come up empty handed, ask away.
    haha @ the thought of a bunch of high schoolers picking the plants and trying to smoke them! "YEAH DUDE IT'S SALVIA!"

    No, I'm very sure it's not salvia divinorum.
    There are no purple flowers, or any resemblence at all. Did you look at the picture I posted?

    Salvia is a genus, not a species. There are a mass of plants in the salvia genus. The species Salvia divinorum also belongs in this genus.

    He means "Salvia" is a genus, a broad category with specific species that fall under this category. Salvia divinorum and salvia nemorosa fall under the Genus category, but are each different species.
