But BBC Wales’ X Ray programme found goods like the Ecstasy like pill Doves or the hallucinogenic herb salvia on sale as plant food or incense.However salvia, derived from the sage like plant salvia divinorum and dubbed “the YouTube drug” as young people post internet videos of themselves smoking it and experiencing hallucinations, is openly on sale for use as incense or pot pourri.And Doves, pills which experts say contain similar properties to Ecstasy, are packaged as plant food and advertised as encouraging “healthy growth and strong root development”.Neither substance is currently illegal under the Misuse of Drugs Act, although it is illegal to sell them for human consumption.At Rebel Rebel, an independent shop in Cardiff, the researcher was able to buy a packet of Doves even though the researcher made it clear she wanted them for a party.Dr Dearden, chairman of the British Medical Association’s Welsh GPs committee, told the programme that some High Street stores were trying to get around legislation that allows only licensed people to sell drugs for human consumption.He said: “If someone is selling one of these things as a plant food but (saying) you can take it if you want to, or saying it’s herbal, it’s not a medicine, what they’re trying to do is go around the Medicines Act, which is in place to protect the population.”They’re kind of saying we’re not really interested in protecting you, we just really want your money. If these things are safe then then they should go through the Medicines Act.”Dr John P Thompson, clinical pharmacologist at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, told X Ray that Doves are in the same family of drugs as Ecstasy.He said: “It’s got a compound called butylone in it, which is related to Ecstasy. I would expect this to have the same properties, the same effect.”Dr Dearden added: “It’s almost like a game of Russian roulette.
Representative CHARLES RANGEL (Democrat, New York): I’m here because I could afford lawyers for close to two years, but everyone would know that it comes a limit. He can’t get a lawyer to represent him pro bono, either. That would be a gift of services.
