You would think federal Minister of Health Leona Aglukkaq (Powerful
hallucinogen, Letters, Feb. 24) would have at least a grade-school
understanding of the failure alcohol prohibition proved to be in the
1920s. Even a Sunday-school understanding that the forbidden fruit
always tastes sweeter would serve her better than going along with
others jumping on the prohibition bandwagon.

The black market will soon be in control of salvia sales just like the
black market is in control of all the other drugs and substances the
government prohibits now. If the health minister were truly worried
about the health of Canadians, she would act to end prohibition, which
results in adulterated drugs of unknown purity and strength being
available to Canadians of all ages through the black market.
