Senate supports banning hallucinogenic drug salvia
ST. PAUL -- Minnesota may be on the brink of joining the North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin in banning the sale and possession of an increasingly popular hallucinogenic drug.
House and Senate bill would make selling salvia divinorum, a Mexican herb known for producing short and intense highs, a gross misdemeanor. Possession would be a misdemeanor.
Senators tentatively approved the bill Thursday.
