I am up for suggestions though. What could we use instead of Entheogen that Google would still like. In other works Google has Popular Key words for different niches shamanic plants are typically in Entheogen, Ethnobotanicals, Or other names.
I believe Entheogen means to bring forth the god from within. This could be taken many ways. But it basically means plant with spirit or plant ally. A lot of cultures believed that plants have spirits and the plants are like a key into another world a world where the plant can speak to you.

But anyways
What name would be more beneficial ?


What's wrong with using entheogen? Are you talking about keywords to be used in the meta tag?

State Senate Bans Hallucinogenic Herb

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The state Senate has banned a Mexican herb that can cause intense hallucinations.

The Senate passed a Democratic-authored bill that prohibits the manufacture and distribution of Salvia divinorum. Violators would face up to $10,000 in fines.

The prohibition would not extend to a form of the herb the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has classified as a homeopathic drug.

The National Conference of State Legislatures says at least 16 states have passed laws regulating or controlling the herb since 2006.

The Senate passed the measure on a voice vote. The state Assembly passed the bill in September. The measure now goes to Gov. Jim Doyle, who can sign it into law or veto it.

Doyle spokesman Adam Collins says the governor will review the bill when he receives it.

We can only hope for a Veto...

It's too late. That article also thinks that the bill allows for pharmaceutical use of Salvinorin A or something. I'm not sure what they mean by homeopathic drug. But I'm guessing that it means they created an out in case medicinal use of it reaches the public elsewhere. One of the safest things on the planet. Banned. Another failure by modern society.

that is really bad news. i cant believe what people are resorting to, making nature illegal whats next ?
i guess thats what happens. when people dont understand something they feel the only way to deal with it is to ban it.
It really is a shame a few bad apples will spoil it all for the rest of us. Thanks for the input.

North Carolina should be added to the list. Their salvia policy is the same as Georgias( it's cool as long as it's for decoration only)

I live in Georgia and I swear I wouldn't use it for anything else except as a nice houseplant or outdoors plant.

I read the bill closely for my state. It does NOT state that owning the plant is illegal. However, once the plant is manufactured, then it becomes a controlled substance. I'm no lawyer, but these laws also apply to chemicals that are used in every day cleaning. It isn't until it's abused that it becomes a crime. Just a thought.

I applaud you. Remember to talk about stuff like this WITH your law makers. You should be able to engage in conversation with them through some process.
