Salvia to be Banned Because of Wacky Youtubers

In case you missed the sort of hilarious front-page article this morning, the movement to federally ban the heretofore-completely-legal-by-omission potent hallucinogen salvia has been gaining steam recently, despite the potential benefits of its responsible usage. This is why:

Those who support the contemplative use of salvia disdain the YouTubers for disrespecting the herb’s power and purpose.

“They’re not really taking it as a tool to explore their inner psyche,” said Daniel J. Siebert, a Californian who pioneered the production of salvia extracts. “They’re just taking it to get messed up.”

Try explaining this reasoning to your friend during the seven minutes when the couch they’re sitting on is sucked into a space-time rift, or something.
