Supreme Court confirms sentences for sale of hallucinogenic plant

23-06-2009

The Czech Supreme Court confirmed on Tuesday suspended sentences for two men who had been convicted of selling the hallucinogenic plant Salvia Divinorum, known as the Sage of the Seers. A court in Prague found the men guilty in 2008 of promoting illicit drugs by selling dried leaves of the plant over the internet, and handed them a one year suspended prison sentence, although sage is not included in the international list of narcotics.
