Anti-Salvia Movement in California

leave a comment »

Many of you have heard and seen a video of Miley Cyrus smoking salvia from a bong.  It immediately caused controversy with parents whose children are fans of Miley.  But just as of recently it is causing drama in the California State government.

Former California State Assembly Man, Anthony Adams, just started restarted an anti-salvia movement that he tried to start up in 2007, when he did not receive much support.  He is now receiving much support after this video of Miley was leaked.  It shows that slavia is a drug and that it has the effects of both marijuana and LSD.  It shows that it is being used irresponsibly, and according to Adams, “it makes you do incredibly crazy things”.

The movement is being enforced, and Adams along with his many followers hope that this movement is a success and leads to an outright ban of the drug.

It is amazing to think that one video on the Internet can spark such a controversy and lead to a change in the government.  The Internet is more powerful than most realize it can be.
