A thoroughly ignorant change in UK law categorises magic mushrooms the same as crack cocaine (i.e. a Class A drug). Plenty of stories on this, - here's a link to one example from BBC News Website, but to keep fully abreast I recommend you set up a Google Alert see also my Media Stories section 24-Apr-2005 ScienceAndReligion/SpidersWebs ~ Spiders on Acid (and other substances) 16-Apr-2005 MediaStories/20050416_Guardian ~ Furore over 'rushed' ban on magic mushrooms 25-Mar-2005 Salvia/Effects/Feedback/Persistence ~ breakthrough experience (after nothing at first) 19-Mar-2005 MediaStories/20050202_SundayMail2 ~ First draft detail (almost line-by-line) rebuttal of Sunday Mail's story 26-Feb-2005 MediaStories/20050226_NewScientist ~ The Electric Kool-Aid Clinical Trial
Sunday 6th February 2005 - Scottish tabloid the Sunday Mail 'investigates' Salvia divinorum Scotland. - A scurrilous piece of sensationalism. See MediaStories/20050202_SundayMail
In particular for anyone visiting the site as a result of reading the misleading article, please be aware that I do not consider or promote or sell Salvia as a cannabis substitute (in fact I give cannabis fairly short thrift on this website).
Monday 24th January 9:00pm BBC2 - Bruce Parry's excellent series 'Tribe' featured ingestion of the psychoactive Ibogaine. For those that missed or otherwise want a copy, I've captured and converted to XviD* - Contact me if you'd like a CD-ROM (requested donation £1). See also my other plant related video material.
* - XviD is a video format for computer playback (using pretty much any media player). It also works with appropriate mpeg4 compatible DVD players.

February 2002 ~ Migration
Note that this web-site has migrated from former address www.mypc.myhome.org.uk to new address www.salvia-divinorum-scotland.co.uk. The old web-site was well known by search-engines, so most of the pages on the original have been programmed to automatically re-route to equivalent page on the new site. If you notice the URL address switching that's why. Also, 'Frames' have been added to improve the look and feel of the site and to assist with navigation. The site should still be compatible with browsers that do not support frames (difficult for me to fully test but let me know if you have any particular problems). Generally, a lot of links have been recently changed or newly added. However, this should not have introduced any erroneous or broken links. Please let me know if you find any; - send me an e-mail.
