What is Salvia?

Salvia divinorum, despite sounding like a spell from the world of Harry Potter, can’t turn you into an inanimate object, make you leave your body, or set your feet on fire. However, it can make you FEEL like all of those things are happening. This little plant is a hallucinogen – one so powerful and unique that the DEA isn’t quite sure how to regulate it. Hank’s got the details on this psychotropic member of the sage genus in this episode of SciShow.
