Sadly enough Salvia divinorum was given a bad name. This is largely a product of lack of education on the herb. While it is not exactly main-stream knowledge that traditionally this plant was considered an oneirogen ( dream inducing ), there is quite a staggaring amount of evidence which suggest that it is. It was turned into unnecessarily potent extracts which caused more panick then they did psychedelia. It seems that it was sold to people underage and that very few people here in the states understood how it was really supposed to be used, and that is carefully and lightly.
I really don't believe that the traditional use of Salvia divinorum by Indians and Shamans was to temporarily "freak out". It can offer a subtle shift in perception when used correctly that can allow one to explore realms of their consciousness not attainable in other ordinary states. It is illegal in most states within the USA and even several other countries. It was given an unfair prohibition because people gave corrupt politicians a reason to attack it. If only everyone had worked together to educate and prevent such a disaster.
If you're looking for the latest and most popular natural substances similar to Salvia then you'll wanna check out Kratom. It behaves like an opiate but doesn't show up on drug test. The DEA tried to ban it not too long ago but failed miserably thanks to the people..
