Your Feb. 22 article Feds eye ban on obscure herb indicates a 
dangerous disconnect with reality and perception. Bart Stras, owner 
of the head shop The Joint, clearly has been smoking too much of his 
own product when he says "salvia has never had any issues as a herbal 
incense product."

Of course it hasn't, because he knows that people who buy salvia want 
a hallucinogenic high and aren't looking to have their boudoir smell 
minty fresh. If it weren't so pathetic, it would be almost comical 
that salvia is sold as a so-called natural health product. I believe 
that poisonous mushrooms are also a 100 per cent natural product.
