3 Legal Drugs and What They Do


It is commonly thought that most recreational drugs are illegal. This is largely due to marijuana, a fairly harmless drug, being illegal in most of the developed world. However, there are several, lesser-known, drugs that are legal depending on where you live. Here are just three of the several examples.

1. Kratom

Kratom is a drug that comes from a tree native to Asia. Historically, it was used for its perceived medical properties, and today it is still occasionally used to help combat anxiety and other mental issues. Its primary usees today are for recreational purposes and minor pain relief. There are concerns that it has properties similar to opioids, but its legality varies by state.

2. Salvia

Salvia is a plant native to Mexico that is somewhat comparable to LSD in that it causes hallucinogenic effects. Native Americans have used salvia for centuries, and it has been shown to be non-addictive and non-toxic. Recreational salvia is legal in some capacity in sixteen US states, so if you plan to use it, be sure to check the laws in your state and your local area.

3. Ayahuasca

Ayahuasca is not as black and white in terms of legality. Ayahuasca itself is not illegal, but DMT, the active ingredient in ayahuasca, is illegal. However, because the native Americans that traditionally use ayahuasca do so for religious and spiritual reasons, the United States government has not outlawed it. Ayahuasca has hallucinogenic properties, like salvia, and it is native to south and central America.

Drugs can definitely be dangerous and harmful, and even if a drug is legal in your area, that does not mean it is completely safe. Always be sure to be safe when using drugs of any kind, and also ensure that you are following the laws relevant to your area to avoid legal trouble.
